Happy New Year. Seollal is on 22 January, ushering in the year of the water rabbit.


  • The V&A’s Hallyu exhibition and the Whitechapel Gallery’s Zadie Xa solo show are still going strong
  • The KCC’s winter Open Call exhibition runs until 4 February
  • London Art Fair runs from 18 – 22 January. I don’t see any of the main Korea specialists among the galleries attending, though you’ll find the occasional Korean artist represented by a mainstream gallery (for example Joy Kim at Union and Myung Nam An at Cube)



  • We’ve yet to hear of any theatrical screenings this month, but you can still catch Decision to Leave (most critics’ film of the year) along with other Park Chan-wook films on MUBI

Talks and workshops

Publications expected in January

Do let me know what books and events I’ve missed.
