Get closer to KOREAN FILM

20 April 2016

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea (Ambassador Yeon Ho Choi) organized the first Korean Film Night for 2016 in the Events Hall of the South Korean Embassy in Pretoria.

Since October 2013, the South Korean Embassy has organized KOREAN FILM NIGHTS once a month and attendance has been steadily growing.

An estimated 100 people, including members from the diplomatic corps, fans of K-POP & K-Drama, students of Korean language & the martial art ‘Taekwondo’ as well as neighbours of the Korean Embassy watched the Korean action film called ‘A Hard Day’ in the series of films to be showcased.

Korean Film Nights introduces not only Korean film but also Korean culture through diverse events, including serving Korean food, exploring a photo exhibition of Korean beauty and experiencing Korean royal costume.

The audience especially enjoyed Korean BBQ, called Bulgogi.

Ambassador Choi announced, "Korean Film Nights have been established and developed as a cultural program of the Korean Embassy, even though it is not a big cultural program compared to a cultural festival. We would like to encourage this program through different events related to Korean culture that audiences gave favourable comments on tonight, namely Korean traditional clothing and the Korean photo exhibition." 

There are interesting movies in the line-up so make sure to look out for the next movie 'Beauty Insider' which will be flighted in May 2016.
