DAVAO CITY – Take a glimpse and dive into a memorable experience as the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) brings “Spring in Joseon” to Davao City.
This year’s Korea Festival with a theme, “Spring in Joseon,” hosted by the Korean Embassy – Korean Cultural Center, in partnership with SM Lanang Premier, will happen on April 29 and 30 at SM Lanang Premier Fountain Court.
With a wide range of different Korean food and drinks combined with traditional activities, this festival will take you back to old Korea – as if you are in an episode of Sageuk (Korean historical drama)!
Spring in Joseon marks the new beginning of present-day Korea as it was when Hangeul, the unique Korean characters, was made. From here on, everyone could express themselves freely, and the Korean literature written in Hangeul also started, giving birth to the widely loved K-drama and K-pop.
Get ready for an eventful weekend that will take you on a memorable journey as you experience the rich culture of Korea! There are tons of activity booths that are free for everyone to enjoy. From traditional Korean spring activities, like Beongseonhwa (kind of flower) Nail Dye, down to playing traditional Korean games, Neolttwigi (Korean seesaw), for sure, everyone has something to look forward to!
Not only that the 2-day festival will bring Korea’s tradition and history to your area, but there are also aesthetic photo spots that just look like you’re in a Korean palace. And as your eyes get full from everything the festival offers, your stomach won’t be left empty as there is also traditional Korean spring food like Hwajeon (flower pancake) and drinks prepared to enjoy.
But that’s not all! What’s a festival without some music, right? Get ready to be entertained by the Korean traditional performance team as they showcase their talents in playing and singing traditional Korean songs called Pungmulnori (percussion ensemble) and Pansori (solo musical storytelling). There will also be a special performance by P-Pop star and breakthrough artist, Mona Gonzales.
Of course, you can’t miss out on our talented Davaoeños as they showcase their skills to this year’s “Everyone’s KPOP: Davao” on the 29th, wherein the grand winner will get the chance to perform again on stage on the 30th, capping off the entire festival. This contest also marks the first-ever K-Pop contest in the region hosted by KCC.
This celebration is the perfect opportunity for you and your loved ones to not only learn about the roots of Korean culture but also to bond, learn and create unforgettable memories together.
So join us for a truly amazing journey on April 29 and 30 from 11 AM to 8 PM at the Fountain Court, SM Lanang Premier, Davao City, as we celebrate the “Spring in Joseon” Korea Festival 2023.
