We’re only halfway through May, but I thought I’d give you some warning that we’ve got a pretty busy few weeks ahead of us. I’ll be posting stuff about all of this this site in due course, but this is just a quickie in the interim. I don’t have the full details of some of these events yet…
Film wise, there’s the Tiger Asian film festival at the end of May. There’s the controversial D-War to look forward to, plus “an amusing macabre musical featuring breakdancing zombies”. Wacky or what? Director Im Sang Soo will be there to answer questions on The President’s Last Bang. And of course there’s the regular film screenings at the KCC.
Also at the KCC there will be an exhibition of Korean antique maps starting soon, with a lecture about them in early June.
Korea will be taking over Trafalgar Square on June 8th for the Dano festival, as last year. One of the headline acts will be the Yoon Band, who will also be playing in a separate gig in Kingston while they’re over here (on 6 June)
Major artist Suh Do-ho will participate in a group show at the Hayward Gallery, Sea-hyun Lee is at the Union Gallery and I-MYU continue their regular exhibitions, while the ceramic artists of north Gyeongsang province will be paying us another visit – they’ll be exhibiting in New Malden in early June.
Also in New Malden in the first half of June is the New Malden festival.
What else? Oh yes, the KCC will be starting its weekly evening classes in beginners Korean sometime in June, while Aidan F-C will be talking at the KCC in late May on the Sunshine policy.
And that’s before I start checking the LKL events calendar to remind myself of what else is coming. Hectic.
