The 2006 London Korean Festival is now over. You can still comment on the films here, and also please give some feedback on the film festival generally by filling out my survey here. Comment on the Traditional Yet Contemporary exhibition here. If you managed to get to the final event, Professor Kim Chang-nam’s talk, please review my summary of the evening and correct any inaccuracies. Thanks to Tae-min, Stephanie, the sponsors, and all involved in this year’s festival for all their hard work. Also on at the moment in the Cat Hill Gallery in Wimbledon is a show of flower paintings by artist Roh Sook-ja, till 25 June. The Anglo-Korean Society dinner is on 14 June, the global week of prayer for North Korea is 19-25 June, and don’t forget the Yohangza Theatre Company doing a Korean version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Barbican from 27 June. Note that this site will be a World Cup Free zone for the duration. You can go along to Brick Lane and see the Korean matches for yourself on a mega screen. And a late addition: 13-15 of June at the Bloomsbury Theatre sees the NewRa dance group performing some Korean ritual music, as well as the Rite of Spring, reviewed here. Thanks again to Hyun-ho for spotting this.
