The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Korean Language Flagship Center Special Lecture Series will feature a program on the traditional Korean wedding ceremony Thursday, September 21, 2017, from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. The program will be conducted by Sang Lee, a distinguished artist of the Korean community in Hawai‘i.
Over the past thirty-five years, Sang Lee has made many artistic contributions to the Islands by introducing rich Korean traditions such as wedding ceremonies, calligraphy, and paintings. His artworks portray a tangible connection between the past and the present of Korea and the United States, the essence of the Korean Language Flagship Center of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
Along with the demonstration of the traditional wedding ceremony, the program will include dance performances by Mary Jo Freshley, director of the Halla Huhm Korean Dance Studio; Clara Hur, a Korean Flagship M.A. student; and Annette Lee, a UH Mānoa business student. Replicas of several traditional royal costumes will also be on display.
The program is free and open to the public and will take place in the Center for Korean Studies auditorium at 1881 East-West Road on the University of Hawai‘i Mānoa campus.
