In 2007, a Korean theater celebrates 75 years. Throughout its activities, the theatre was the cultural center of the Korean Diaspora as ethno-cultural phenomenon that has developed as a result of a particular historical process.
This is a unique creative body, which employs the fourth generation of Korean artists.
In the professional theatre concentrated forces representing the main genres of art, the national folklore ensemble “Samulnori”, ballet, traditional Korean dance, solo singers and the basis of theatre — a theatre group.
A diverse range of theatre: from drama performances to traditional folk performances, such as “Chuseok”, “Ovol Tano”, concerts, modern variety show. The repertoire of the Korean theater was built taking into account the cultural needs of the Diaspora as an integral part of Kazakh culture.
For years of existence of theatre in its performances have been more than 5 million viewers, staged more than 250 performances and concerts.

Five artists of the theatre was awarded the high title of people’s artist, nine — the honored worker of arts, one of the honored worker of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the seventeen — honored artist.
The expression on Anatoly Kim, a famous Russian writer, “theatre remains the spiritual guardian of the past, represents the world of the people among whom we live today, our Korean soul, its beauty, depth, subtlety and charm. ”
Clearly thought-out, systematic government support of the theatre gave the Korean Diaspora a unique opportunity to have a cultural centre, which not only preserves but also develops a culture of Koreans living in multiethnic environment.
And today, in spite of its venerable age, the theatre is full of hopes, anxieties and expectations.
