Keyword catalogue: welcome to LKL’s taxonomy archive

Want to find something on this site? Here’s a good place to start. It’s like an index.

Below are all the keywords / tags we use on LKL, bucketed together into groups. The tags are sorted alphabetically within those groups. Names, both Korean and Western, are generally listed with their family name first.

The groupings are set out in the table below. Click on the taxonomy title to jump to the detailed listing lower down the page. You might also want to review the LKL Category Archive for more generic taxonomies.

Taxonomy title Description
The people who feature in our posts
Artists visual artists past and present, plus designers and architects
Directors directors of movies, documentaries, animations and dramas
Musicians classical and gugak performers, rock and pop groups, singers, composers. If you’re looking for your favourite K-pop star here, you might instead find them under Everyone Else
People in history figures from the past: monarchs, scholars and other people you find in the history books.
Writers novelists, poets, playwrights and other authors
Everyone else celebrities, actors, dancers, sportsmen and women, and everyone else. If you can’t find a celeb in this list, it may be because they are included under Musicians, Artists or Directors
Culture, heritage and other things we write about
Events + Exhibitions notices and reviews of some, but not all, events or exhibitions we have covered
Festivals articles relating to annually recurring film, arts, design or other festivals.
Intangible Cultural Heritage art forms, crafts and other items of intangible cultural heritage registered at National or Provincial level.
Temples Buddhist temples and hermitages
Titles titles of books, plays or films
UNESCO Heritage items of tangible and intangible heritage that the Koreas have registered with UNESCO
Other taxonomies
Companies Korean chaebol and SMEs, and Western companies with Korean connections
Organisations and venues galleries, museums, societies – often venues or organisers for events that we report on
Places cities and provinces in Korea, or indeed places elsewhere. Given the remit of this site, where so many articles are London-based, we haven’t bothered creating a “London” tag
