April events
Clockwise from top left: Sandra Oh in Umma; Joo Yeon Sir and Irina Andrievsky; Eric Nam; and Chung Ju-yung’s funeral motorcade (from the KCC’s documentary double bill)

It’s looking like a relatively quiet month this month…


  • The KCC is screening a documentary double bill on 7 April. Hopefully a second double bill will follow later in the month.
  • You might find Umma featuring Sandra Oh in a cinema somewhere, though screening times in the West and Southwest London area at least seem to be very late at night.
  • Online dance film screenings are available to those who buy tickets to the Festival of Korean Dance.



Talks and seminars

  • This month’s literature event at the KCC features Choi Eunyoung in conversation with Sung Ryu, on the subject of Shoko’s Smile, 27 April
