London Korean Links

Covering things Korean in London and beyond since 2006

Korean Eye 2012 at the Saatchi Gallery

After a break from London last year, Korean Eye is back, bigger than ever, taking over the whole of the Saatchi Gallery – not just a couple of rooms. All the works are owned by the Korean Eye organisation, but this exhibition has been independently curated. A great contribution to all the Korean cultural events happening in London during the Olympics.
