Following the incredible success of the 2015 London Korean Festival in Trafalgar Square, Korea's biggest and most exciting family day returned to the capital once more. The London Korean Festival 2017 officially launched the UK programme of the Korea/UK 2017-18, a season that encouraged greater cultural exchange between Korea and the UK.

The 2017 festival offered breath-taking performances, taking in everything from Korea's oldest traditions to the latest K-Pop hits. The programme included a B-boy dance performance, cultural workshops, Korean martial arts Taekwondo demonstrations, TAGO, a drumming group who performed sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016, a virtual experience of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and exhibitions on Korean food and tourism. Following the daytime event, which was free to attend, a ticketed evening concert by K-pop sensations Highlight, EXID, KNK and SNUPER took place. The day proved hugely popular, bringing 12,000 people to Olympia, London.
