July is another relatively busy month with plenty to satisfy most tastes. So far, my personal priorities are the KCC’s exhibition featuring works by members of the Korean National Academy of Arts, the discussion-concert by the “Godfather of K-pop” in Oxford, and I might be tempted to re-watch the psychological thriller Sleep when it comes to some Curzon cinemas in the middle of the month. For Korean food fans there’s a festival down in New Malden at the end of the month, and no doubt we’ll find plenty of events which have yet to be advertised. Enjoy the warm weather while it lasts.

  • Minsuk Cho’s “Archipelagic Void” Pavilion is installed at the Serpentine Gallery until 27 October

  • The Maeum (마음) documentary season continues at the KCC and ICA with
  • Jason Yu’s Sleep gets a limited theatrical release at Curzon cinemas from 12 July, with some earlier previews. Highly recommended.
