culture day imageThe Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies hosts Kore­an Cul­ture Day on Fri­day, April 11, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is spon­sored by the Cen­ter along with the Kore­an Lan­guage Flag­ship Cen­ter; the UH Col­lege of Lan­guages, Lin­guis­tics, and Lit­er­a­ture; the Depart­ment of East Asian Lan­guages and Lit­er­a­tures; and Pala­ma Supermarket.

The mul­ti­event pro­gram will take over the Center’s lob­by, con­fer­ence room, and class­room. Sched­uled activ­i­ties include brush cal­lig­ra­phy (붓글씨쓰기) and wear­ing han­bok (한복). You can try your hand at play­ing chegich’agi (제기차기), ttackchich’igi (딱지치기), kong­gi (공기), and t’uho (투호). There will also be demon­stra­tions of t’aekwŏndo (태권도) and a stu­dent tal­ent show (장기자랑). Maybe best of all, you can sam­ple some ttŏkpok­ki (떡볶이) lunch box­es (도시락).
