History

Opened in October 2010, the Korean Cultural Center Washington DC
continues to introduce the gradual development and future images of Korea. In response to rapid
changes within the international arena, we have tried to build a strong partnership with Americans
by sharing Korean culture, such as Korean traditional arts, language, food, music and Taekwondo.
