Here are the events for July that I know of so far. I’m expecting that the exhibition at Asia House entitled A Soldier’s Tale could be the highlight of the month.
As you may have noticed, I can’t keep up with the number of Korean Language Meetups and K-pop parties, so I have dropped those from this list. Let me know what I’ve missed.
