This photo is of the many members of this club as well as some of their families at this major event.
This page was designed to illustrate what a bird show looks like in another part of the world. It was hosted by a Korean club named, TANGO & CANARY CLUB 50 MEMBERS.
On the 15th and 16th of June, 2002 they held their very first bird show! There were 300 birds in this show and about 250 spectators! More details below from an interview with the person who exhibited the Best Bird In Show or as they call it: The Best Of The Best! Here are some more photos of the show and of course, the winning bird!!
The above two photos are of the Show Facilities and The Gallery.

An Interview With Rak Hyun Bae, Who's Canary Won Best Of The Best In Korea!
On June 16th, 2002, I received an e-mail from my good friend, Rak Hyun Bae of Korea in which he alerted me to the fact that he had won. Here's what he wrote in his words in his very limited English:
Dear Don, I have been to Canary Show yesterday. My Gloster is the Best of Best. Thank you!!! Rak Hyun
If I may, I'd like to preface this interview with some history. Last November Mr. Rak Hyun, a well-known math professor, had received a much anticipated shipment of Glosters he had ordered from The House Of Crests! You can imagine the work involved as it relates to shipping livestock to Korea (or to any other country, for that matter) from the USA with the current politics between the two countries governments being in a rather delicate situation. Needless to say, all went without a hitch and Rak Hyun received his canaries after a brief 12-day quarantine period in Korea.
Rak Hyun had requested I ship him all the ingredients contained in the diet plan used in The House. He has since received his food supplies and all the Glosters were doing well. Earlier this year, he requested a Gloster Show Cage which was also shipped. Shipping is very expensive and it all needs to be sent via the United States Postal Service's Express Mail Overnight Delivery for only a few dollars more than Parcel Post. Express Mail Overnight got his packages there in a few days whereas Parcel Post takes about 2 months to get there via the proverbial "slow boat to China" route, as the saying goes!! Now he orders most all his bird food products from Janis Clark of Orchid Tree Exotics here in America.
Among the canaries kept by Koreans are Red Factors, Northern Dutch Frills, Rollers, Glosters and a few other breeds as I can gather from their various web sites. Several have been importing their stock from England, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy and other foreign countries. From what I understand, this is the first shipment of birds other than chickens ever to be sent to Korea from the United States.
With the changes in environment and adjustments and all this being rather new to Rak Hyun, he did not raise many canaries this past Spring and the young were of course, in a molt. Even though their show was being held in mid-June, the Glosters I shipped him in November had not started their summer molt because they were just finishing up their breeding season. As he had only asked for one show cage to be sent, Rak Hyun entered only one Gloster! I guess that's all it took to win the Best of the Best in Show for him!!!
Now to the brief e-mail interview:
Rak: Regarding our bird show, we had a show of Canary 50 Members of Tango & Canary. No Judge. All of us were the judges.
Don: Did you win the best of all the Glosters?
Rak: Yes. There was no Gloster like yours. There was no rival.
Don: Did you win the best of all the canaries?
Rak: Of course. All of Gallery focused only on my Gloster.
Don: How many Glosters in the show in total?
Don: How many canaries in the show in total?
Rak: 250 canaries.
Don: How many birds in the show in total?
Rak: 300 birds.
Don: How many people attended the show in total?
Rak: 250 people.
Don: What did the judges, other people, friends, and exhibitors say about your Gloster?
Rak: They said it is fantastic and a real bird.
Don: Was it a Gloster Corona that you exhibited?
Rak: Yes, it was a yellow variegated green. Ring number is ZZ-7. Thank you for your nice Gloster. Have a good season.
Below you will see why the Gallery of Judges and Tango & Canary Membership thought this canary should win top honors at their very first event! Just click on the thumbnail images and they will open and enlarge for a better view of the description of this Gloster. Please note that Rak Hyun's description of this Gloster is not correct as it is not a "Yellow variegated Green" but rather a high-buff lightly variegated.
It is my hope that you liked this little glimpse of what a Korean Bird Show looks like. As an added note of interest, even though I prefer not to show in the States for the obvious reasons I've mentioned in previous pages of this site, The Line continues to prove that it produces Champions that can and do win around the world! Even in 2002, The House Of Crests continues to be victorious in its' "Quest To Raise The Best!"
