[CBC뉴스] 한국의 전통 의상 '한복'을 입은 두 명의 잠수부가 3일 아쿠아리움 방문객들에게 수중 세배를 했다.
국내 최대 2,200톤급 물탱크인 '더 오션'의 신비한 노란색과 파란색 불빛 아래, 잠수부들은 가오리, 상어 그리고 다른 물고기들과 함께 수영했다.
Dressed in South Korea's traditional costume 'Hanbok', two divers at a Seoul aquarium made New Year bows to visitors from underwater on Sunday (January 3).
Under mysterious yellow and blue lights in the country's largest 2,200-ton water tank called 'The Ocean', the divers swam alongside stingrays, sharks and other fish.
"I've never seen scuba divers before, and it was first time to watch them dressed in hanbok. As my family members don't wear hanbok in holidays, it was a new and fun experience," Yoo Hwan-girl, a 27-year-old who came with his girlfriend, told Reuters.
It is the fifth year the Lotte World Aquarium has held such a performance since it opened in mid-October 2014.
But this year, along with a 'Happy New Year' banner the aquarium installs in the water each year, it installed another banner saying 'Let's beat the coronavirus wisely'.
"It's unfortunate since (the aquarium) could have been a place where many people could enjoy themselves together if it wasn't for the coronavirus. I hope everyone follows the government's measures and overcomes the coronavirus as soon as possible," 36-year-old dad, Han Sang-jin said, with his baby daughter in his arms.
