Who are they? Hung-Yut (Leonel) grew up in Hong Kong but spent most of his adult life in the United States. He met Hwaiy (Florencia) in Korea in 2005, soon thereafter they began their partnership. Together they are very active in promoting Argentine Tango culture in Korea. They regularly teach, perform, and organize milongas in Seoul and other Korean cities. In May 2009 they started organizing the annual Seoul Tango Festival, which attracted over 200 Korean and 70 international dancers.For more information about them and their tango activities, please visit http://www.leoyflor.com/.
Hung-Yut and Hwayi understand the frustration of learning Argentine Tango. There are many great Argentinian masters, their dance is amazing, but they all tell us different things and sometimes they even contradict each other.
Hung-Yut and Hwayi understand because they went through the same process. They took classes from visiting teachers, they practiced in practicas, they watched videos and they stayed up late at night taking about tango with their friends. And like a good number of us, they learned Spanish and went to Buenos Aires multiple times.
Eventually they have arrived at a tango that they can comfortably enjoy with Argentinians and non-Argentinians alike. They have been sharing their experiences with the Korean tango community with success, and they would like to share the same with you.
