Elderly S.Koreans find a way to dance as discos shut

It's back to the disco

for South Korea’s elderly

Location: Seoul

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."
