Carnival time


Hans-Ulrich Seidt, the German ambassador to Korea, dances at the German expatriates’ annual masquerade ball held by the first Seoul Carnival Committee on Feb. 3, at the Millennium Seoul Hilton Hotel, central Seoul.

The festival emulates the party and carnival season in Germany that starts at 11:11 a.m. on Nov. 11.

For German expatriates who miss their traditional festival, a group of high-ranking figures related to Germany composed the committee to organize the ball in 2011 and to select a prince and a princess whose parade highlights the beginning of the party.
