Note: during the pandemic, physical events in the real world are few and far between, and we need to look online for fulfillment. LKL recommends the Royal Asiatic Society, Korea Branch, in Seoul and the Korea Society in New York as excellent providers of your online cultural fix, though there are other institutions as well. However, we will not be listing their online events below as there are not enough hours in the day – though we might include events we particularly recommend in our Google calendar and will usually include them in the monthly event roundups. We will, of course, be listing below any online event put on by UK-based organisations (eg, the KCCUK and SOAS).
Here is a list of current and upcoming events that have been posted to LKL, sorted by start date. Note that there may be a few events which haven’t made it onto the below list (I can’t keep up with all the language meetups, dance workshops and K-pop parties). Most of the latter events are listed on Facebook, and you can find an aggregation of all UK Facebook-listed Korea-related events that we know about here. So a combination of the two lists should give you the complete picture. I try to post everything into our Google Calendar as well.
Where no hyperlink is provided for the event below, that’s because we’re still assembling the detailed information for it. A link will follow once we’ve completed and published the relevant events post. Updates to the list (which might be new events, or edits to events already posted) made in the last five days are flagged as *Recent*.
