The Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles (KCCLA) presents “Excellent Cultural Products from Korea,” a special exhibition of more than 55 items that have earned the Korean Seal of Excellence for Cultural Products.
The exhibit runs through July 25 at the center, 5505 Wilshire Blvd. It will then be on display from July 29-31 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Exhibit Hall, 1201 S. Figueroa St.
The Korean Seal of Excellence for Cultural Products is the government’s recognition of items that convey the Korean cultural values. Represented by its unique mark inspired by the Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) coat string, K-Ribbon, the certification system, offers organized brand marketing support. The certification system covers the nation’s products such as Hansik (traditional Korean food), crafts, Hanbok and cultural content.
“The main goal of the Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles is to introduce and share our culture with other communities. So this exhibition is a great opportunity to [view] authentic Korean products,” said KCCLA director Nak Jung Kim. “Carefully selected by Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the products are at the essence of Korean culture – from K-Fashion, K-Food, K-Craft to K-Contents. I am happy to share with other communities our traditions, and hope you take a look inside our heritage and have a better understanding of Korea.”
The exhibition is open to the public. For information, call (323)936-7141, or visit www.kccla.org.
