Summer’s over, Chuseok approaches.
- 100% Design is at Earls Court 17 – 20 September. I’m assuming there will be a Korean pavilion as in past years, as well as independent Korean designers.

Film and drama
- The season of films featuring work by music director Cho Young-wook comes to an end with Glove on 11 September (downstairs at the KCC) and Oldboy on 25 September (at the Odeon West End) – the latter screening will be followed by Q&A with Cho, and preceded by an orchestral performance of some of the soundtrack.
- There’s a week of Korean Drama at SOAS, the KCC and Curzon Soho, 23-28 September.
- The British Korean Society’s Chuseok gathering is on 11 September, but if you haven’t registered yet I think it’s too late.
There’s probably a whole load of stuff I’ve missed. Please let me know if you spot anything major.
