Here are the events in March that I know of. Join the LKL Facebook group, for any updates.

Theatre

  • In-sook Chappell’s debut play “This isn’t Romance” continues until 7 March. If you live in the London area you really should go to see this.

Music

  • A rare opportunity to hear a live performance of a work by Yun Isang. Flautist Jasmine Choi performs at the Wigmore on 30 March, together with interesting works by Reinecke, Bartok, Jolivet and Debussy. A cracking programme.

Visual Arts

  • Sea-hyun Lee’s solo show continues at Aspex in Portsmouth
  • Dae-hun Kwon has a solo show at Rachmaninoffs in Hackney from 4 March
  • Jung-mi Bae’s solo show finishes at 17 Seymour Place (near Marble Arch) on 1 March
  • Francesca Cho participates in a group show at August Art as part of the London EAST festival, 5 – 12 March
  • Jeong-hwa Choi’s show “Shine a Light” continues at the KCC until 21 March

Performance

  • Sunnee Park does Korean puppetry and dance at the Blue Elephant Theatre in Camberwell on 22 March. With Sarah Carter.

Talks

  • Patrick Cockburn from the Independent newspaper will be giving an illustrated talk at the KCC on early 20th century Korean history, on 10 March.
  • Three free Korean Studies talks at SOAS this month. 6th, 19th and 20th. More details here.
  • Mike Kim talks on the subject of “Escaping North Korea” at St Anthony’s College Oxford on 10 March and SOAS on 11 March.
  • Dr Michael Shin talks on the Print Industry in early modern Korea, Senate House, 12 March
  • Meet with up to four Korea-UK ambassadors at the House of Commons on 26 March: the UK’s ambassadors to the two Koreas, the ROK’s ambassador to the UK and maybe even the DPRK’s ambassador as well. No doubt one or two past ambassadors will be there too. An unmissable event. But it’s Anglo-Korean Society members and guests only. So join the AKS now.

Film Screenings

  • March’s film screenings at the KCC are Seven Days starring Kim Yun-jin on 12 March, and Hwang Jin-yi starring Song Hye-kyo on 26 March.

One thought on “March events 2009

  1. Thank you for listing the “Escaping North Korea” events on your blog – which is quite a find, you’re doing valuable work listing such events for English speakers. We’re Oxford based, so will probably be at the St Anthony’s event rather than SOAS, but please do stay in touch, I’ll let you know if we have any more Korea related events.
