KLFC Program on the Traditional Korean Wedding Ceremony

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.

Sang Lee photoOver 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.
