At the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines, the fun never stops. On July 20, the center will offer a fresh set of Cultural Classes.
In its new building, the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines will offer classes in cooking, Korean traditional dance, and taekwondo. The classes were chosen based on how many people wanted to take them and how interested the general public was in them.
KOREAN COOKING CLASSES
Lily Min, a teacher at KCC, will teach the cooking class. She has also taught cooking classes in the past. The class will be taught in the new Cooking Classroom at KCC. Each class will have 16 students. The lessons will cover how to cook different kinds of Korean food, as well as the history and social culture of Korea as seen through its food. When they sign up, people who are interested can choose which 8-week menu they want to join.
KOREAN TAEKWONDO CLASS
The Taekwondo Class will be taught by KCC Teacher Kim Hyo Jun, who is also the President of the Korea Taekwondo Association in the Philippines. The class will meet in the new K-Studio at KCC and have a total of 30 students. There will be two sessions of Taekwondo classes on Saturday, and 30 students will take a level test on the first day to split the group into two groups. It will talk about how discipline and martial arts are important parts of Korean culture. It also involves getting stronger in the mind and body and learning the rules of the sport.
KOREAN TRADITIONAL DANCE
Lastly, the Korean Traditional Class will be taught by Jo Jang Eun, a teacher at KCC who has taught traditional dance classes in the past. The class will be held in the new K-Studio at KCC, the same place as the Taekwondo class. On Saturday, there will be a total of 15 students in the class. There will be one session a week, and the curriculum will cover the history and social culture of Korea through its music and dance, especially the Buchaechum or “Fan Dance,” which was inspired by traditional Korean folk dances.
From July 20, 2022, to September 17, 2022, all Cultural Classes will be held. The students will be chosen based on the order in which they fill out the forms, which will be posted on KCC’s official Facebook pages on July 13 at 10 a.m. No student will have to pay any fees for the whole class, and the center will also provide the ingredients, uniforms, and gear needed for the classes.
