Pansori Project Za – part of the All Eyes on Korea programme

This month is absolutely crammed with events, as all organisers arrange things to coincide with the run-up to the Olympics. I challenge you to get to even half of them. Possibly the highlight is the series of concerts on the South Bank as part of the All Eyes on Korea festival.

Keep your eyes peeled for last-minute publicity for events we haven’t heard about yet. Last month one of the highlights was the musical Gumok, which didn’t make the monthly events list because the PR didn’t come out till much later.

Music and Dance

Art and Exhibitions


  • This month’s director at the KCC is Lee Hyun-seung. Screenings on successive Thursdays are The Blue in You (1992), Sunset into Neon Lights (1994), his most famous film (starring Jeon Ji-hyun) Il Mare (2000), plus Hindsight (with Q&A) (2011). As usual, Otherwhere previews the screenings well.

Everything else

  • The KCC hosts a talk on Pansori on 3 July
  • Further KCC lectures this month are Kokdu and Me (on arts management, 11 July), Eyes on Korea (13 July), Introducing Korean cuisine (18 July) and Korean Music, Tradition, Innovation and Identity (20 July)
  • Kiejo’s cookery classes are 14, 21 and 28 July. Contact kiejosarsfield at hotmail dot co dot uk for details
  • I’m betting that there will be some last-minute Olympics-related events which we haven’t heard about yet.
