Prominent Kazakhstani artists such as Musahodjayeva and “The Academy of Soloists", Murzabekova, Aubakirova, Usenbayeva, and groups Yelimai, Isker, Naryn, Adyrna, Altynai, Didar, Naz, Dauren visited the Republic of Korea with concerts in recent years. The partnership between the Symphony Orchestra of the Kazakh State Philharmonic Orchestra and the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra has been established. Cultural Years of Kazakhstan in Korea and of Korea in Kazakhstan were held.
