The students of the UH Manoa Korean Language Flagship Center will stage their annual Korean Culture Day program at the Center for Korean Studies Friday, February 10, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The free program–open to all–offers opportunities to play traditional Korean games such as chegich’agi, a foot-shuttlecock game, and konggi, Korean jacks; try on traditional costume, or hanbok; and try a turn at brush calligraphy in Korean. Samples of Korean food will also be available.
The Korean Language Flagship Center, part of the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, is a concentrated program to produce graduates with advanced language skills. Other sponsors of Korean Culture Day include the Hanwoori Club, the Francis A. and Betty Ann Keala Fund in Arts and Sciences, Palama Supermarket, Fabric Mart, Aloha Drycleaners, Ohana Pacific Bank, Kukui Food Inc., Tony Moly, and the Hawaii Christian Church.
