Hallyu or Korean Wave has been an unprecedented heat and it continues to flourish in Malaysia. With these phenomenon, now there have been a growing demand for the Korean language among Malaysians, especially who love Korean wave & culture.

Korea Tourism Organization(KTO) & King Sejong institute are delighted to announce that King Sejong institute(or 'Sejong Hakdang in Korean) will be opened from 2014 in Malaysia. “Different from King Sejong institutes in any other country, The Kuala Lumpur branch will provide the course & textbook to Malaysian citizen for free. Because we always appreciate Malaysians’ affection to Korea wave & culture ” said Mr. Park Chul Hyun, Managing Director of KTO KL.

New Kuala Lumpur branch will offer locals the opportunity to explore Hangeul, the Korean alphabet, and Korean culture more broadly. As a matter of fact, KL branch will be part of the city’s Korea Plaza, a cultural center operated by the Korea Tourism Organization. The Korea Plaza also offers a range of activities where Malaysians can get a deeper understanding of things ”Korean,” ranging from movies, dramas and other content through to food and K-pop.

The opening ceremony for the King Sejong Institute in Kuala Lumpur will be held at Korea Plaza on 14th February.
