The Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles has launched a free online video series titled “Short & Sweet Lessons on Korean History & Culture” that will run through the end of June.
KCCLA is following guidelines for the closure of cultural facilities during the COVID-19 health emergency, and the series is a way for the center to continue interacting and communicating with the public. Viewers can enjoy the six episodes on KCCLA’s social media platforms and by visiting kccla.org. The videos explore many aspects of Korean history and culture in a concise and fun way presented by lecturers and speakers who are experts in their fields.
The videos are titled “What Koreans Want Americans to Know about Korea”; “Poetry of Korea: Sijo”; “Art of Korea: Korean Art and Architecture with Meher McArthur”; “Beats of Korea: Samulnori”; “Fashion of Korea: Hanbok, Korean Traditional Dress” and “Food of Korea: Gimbap, a Picnic Favorite Finger Food.”
“We all spend most of our time at home due to the coronavirus,” KCCLA Director Wi-Jin Park said. “We hope that all families will have a great time watching this video series, and that the current situation with COVID-19 will return back to normal soon so that we can enjoy Korean culture together.”
KCCLA also presents other programs on Korean history and culture online, such as a seminar for educators, Korean language lessons, art exhibitions, performances, K-pop concerts and movies. For information, visit kccla.org.
