Korea Now! Festival at Outernet and St Giles Square

This looks like an interesting and fun event, right by Tottenham Court Road tube. The art works will make full use of the immersive screens at Outernet, and there’s a range of artists both familiar and unfamiliar. We’re especially excited about the music strand: what’s not to like about a collaboration between Geomungo player Park Woojae and Idiotape member Sin Bumho? Both have appeared in K-music performances in London in previous years and it’ll be great to hear them play together.

Plenty of food will be on offer, and the Korean Tourism Organisation has a great bucket list of 100 places to visit in Korea during this Visit Korea Year.
