Theatrical life in Almaty.

The State Republican Order of the Badge of Honor, the Korean Theater of Musical Comedy, was established in 1932 in the city of Vladivostok. In 1937, during the forcible resettlement of Koreans from the Far East to Kazakhstan and Central Asia, the theater was also deported.
Some of the artists ended up in Kazakhstan, some in Uzbekistan. Two theaters were formed, which later united and began to work in Kazakhstan: Kyzylorda, Ushtobe, then again in Kyzylorda, and since 1968 - in Almaty.
Here the theater received the status of the state republican musical comedy theater. In 1982, the theater was awarded the Order of the Badge of Honor. Initially, the theater conducted more performances on tours in places of compact residence of Koreans - this is in Kazakhstan, Central Asia and southern Russia.
