It's back to the disco
for South Korea’s elderly
This group are dancing together
for the first time in months
after their daytime discotheques
known as 'colatecs' were closed
(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) 89-YEAR-OLD SOUTH KOREAN MAN, JEONG NAM-POONG, SAYING:
"How great is this dancing? K-pop! It's like old men's K-pop. I hope I can dance and have fun and exercise my mind soon."
Despite this temporary solution
the dancers still miss the glitz and glamour
of the colatec's mirror balls and fairy lights
(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) 60-YEAR-OLD SOUTH KOREAN WOMAN, YOON JI-WON, SAYING:
"A colatec is like an old person's playground. Closing colatecs is like killing us. I really hope colatecs reopen soon and the old people can live energetic lives."
