Taking place for five weeks from June 11, the “K-pop Academy” program includes 7 K-pop singing and dancing classes taught by experienced Korean teachers.
The culture festival features activities providing experiences of Korean culture such as watching Korean cartoons, making handicraft products with hanji paper, writing calligraphy, reading comic strips, making kimbap, discovering Korean tourism with 3D glasses, playing folk games, and drawing a collective picture on the theme of “Vietnam-RoK”.
This is the third time such events have been held during the summer in Vietnam, attracting more than 100 trainees who are particularly interested in K-pop and Korean culture.
This year’s program was selected as a typical global cultural project of the RoK Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, which was organized simultaneously at all Korean cultural centres around the world.
Park Hyejin, director of the Korean Cultural Centre in Vietnam, says she hopes the program will draw more Vietnamese teenagers who love Korean culture, particularly K-pop, and help to promote the cultural exchange between the two countries.
