Korean Night

Indiana University’s Korean Night is an annual celebration of the Korean culture and a great chance to experience the rich heritage. Partnering once again with the Korean Students Association, the EASC is preparing for another successful Korean Night, which will take place on October 4th at the Wright School of Education Building (201 N Rose Ave.) on the Indiana University campus. This year we are excited to celebrate the traditional Korean holiday of Chuseok, or autumn harvest festival. Kicking off at 2 p.m., pre-event culture tables will provide entertainment for guests, with various traditional games and activities. Performances will include Samulnori, Taekwondo, K-pop dance, and more. Guests will also be treated to a sampling of delicious Korean cuisine and, tying in with the university's Themester: Eat, Drink, Think: Food from Art to Sciences, a screening of the 2008 film “Siggaek (Le Grand Chef)” will take place in the Education auditorium. To make the event more fruitful, Korean Consul General Sang Il Kim from Chicago will attend to give his remarks for the opening ceremony. The event is open to the students, faculty and the public and is a wonderful experience for teachers and children of all ages. We hope to share to see your face and share this wonderful event with you and your family!
