Korea Festival in ASEAN

The Korea Festival, organized by the Korea Foundation, is a comprehensive cultural program of diverse activities that seeks to introduce the culture and arts of Korea abroad. In 2012, Korea Festival was staged in four major Brazilian cities. The 2013 Korea Festival program will be presented from May 21, 2013 through June 13, 2013. In an effort to bolster Korea-ASEAN relations, it will focus on the six ASEAN countries of Indonesia, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Thailand.

The program includes such events as live performances, exhibitions, and film screenings, as well as a series of lectures and bilateral forums to discuss Korea-ASEAN relations. For people who are familiar with Korea’s popular culture (K-pop music and Korean Wave), the Festival activities will offer an ideal opportunity to enjoy Korea-related experiences in their home country.
