The Korean cultural diary is now back to its customary autumnal chaos: too much packed in with too many events clashing with each other. We’ve got used to the Korean Film Festival scheduling its films so you can’t go to all of them. K-music has now joined the party by scheduling gigs that clash with screenings in the film festival, while the only chance to see the KCC’s winter exhibition outside of office hours also clashes with some film screenings. On 20 November you have to choose between the Kimjang Festival in New Malden, an event linked to the film festival’s artist video stand, and Bongsu Park’s long-anticipated Korean Dream Auction. And that’s just the events we know about at the time of writing. Plenty to choose from then.
