Title Korean culture wave to takeover Trafalgar Square - 9th August - Save the date
Name 런던 Date 06/04/2015 Hit 15256

LONDON 4 June, 2015 - The organizers* of “The London Korean Festival at Trafalgar Square – Imagine your Korea” supported by the Mayor of London, invite everyone to the biggest FREE Korean cultural party ever hosted in the UK. The event will celebrate the vibrancy of this Asian powerhouse and the strong ties between Korea and the UK.  
 

The FREE one-day festival, under the gaze of Admiral Lord Nelson’s statue, features main stage performances from a whole host of genres and artists that include K-Pop bands, Break-dance world champions, traditional music performances, Korean street food stalls and a demonstration of  Korean cookery from celebrity chef ‘Judy Joo’.  
 

The square will be transformed into themed areas, which will include a ‘Tourism Experience Zone’ where visitors can get creative by making a traditional Korean fan or have their name written in Hangul by a calligrapher. A ‘Food Zone’ featuring London based Korean restaurants and vendors will showcase why Korean food is one of the tastiest, trendiest and healthiest cuisines in the world. The ‘Contents Zone’ features gaming and animation, whilst the ‘Brand Zone’ will introduce the ambassadors of Korean manufacturing and technology in the form of Hyundai Motors and LG Electronics. 
 

Ramy Salameh, PR Manager of the Korea Tourism Organisation London said “the city of London is one of the most culturally diverse and exciting capitals in the world, so bringing Korea to its very heart and showcasing everything from K-Pop to Kimchi encapsulates the relationship between the two nations”. 
 

“We want Londoners to get a snapshot of the amazing food, technology, dance, music, and animation that makes Korea such a compelling destination”. 
 

There will be many opportunities before and during the festival to enter several spectacular competitions that could win someone a luxury holiday to Korea; for more details visit gokorea.co.uk to enter. A separate competition for Travel Agents will run in conjunction with our online training facility at gokoreatraining.com
 

In the run up to the event, Londoners should keep their eyes peeled for a ‘Gangnam style flash mob’ touring London’s landmarks on a double-decker bus; the organisers want to make sure no one misses out on the 9th of August!
