2007/02/21 | 73 views | Permalink | Source

Various Korean cultural events will take place in New York this year with special thanks to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Seoul's Culture and Tourism Ministry designated 2007 as the year for Hallyu, or the "Korean Wave", in New York with programs aimed at introducing Korean culture to New Yorkers.

Under the plan, a Korean art exhibition at South Korea's U.N. Mission will continue through November and a placard of traditional Korean design will hang on Broadway and in the city's Koreatown next month.

Also in March, a one-day Korean culture experience program including Korean cuisine and clothing will target wives of foreign diplomats in the Big Apple.

A Korean film festival at the U.N. is also scheduled this year, as well as a Korean crafts fair in July and August.
