This programme is for those with an interest in Korea and Korean culture and want to know more. Running for 10 weeks (16 Feb – 27 Apr 2019), every Saturday afternoon at the KCCUK and various offsite venues, 30 students are welcomed in to develop their understanding of the K-Pop phenomenon for free.

On this course both traditional and contemporary aspects of Korean culture will be explored through topics including Korea’s history, culture, costume, language and food. Each week students will also be joined by a guest speaker who have previously included Brigadier (Retd) B.A.H Parritt CBE on Korean History, Master Jongho Kim teaching Taekwondo and Tammy Jane, Leader of London K-Pop Dance Workshop.
