All About That Hallyu 2019 & Hallyu Com-on

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. is teaming up with the local K-Pop fan community to host the ultimate all-day Korean pop culture celebration on Saturday, August 24 from noon to 9:00 p.m.

All About That Hallyu 2019 & Hallyu Com-on is designed to incubate fan passion and spread the love for the global wave of Korean popular culture, known as Hallyu, through a full day of workshops, live performances, panel discussions, eye-catching exhibits, activities, K-Pop idol cosplay, special guests from social media, and more. The program spans the full spectrum of the Hallyu phenomenon, from core areas like K-Pop and K-Dramas to the latest emerging Korean pop culture trends, including Korean beauty products, animated characters, digital media, and VR technology.

Special guest appearances include influential Korean culture Youtubers Your Sweet Guys (Ilanna & Peggy), who will talk about Youtube trends in Korea, and Young Ajummah (Sarah) who will speak about the rising popularity of Korean webtoons and dramas. Plus, live performances by 4NE1, Dara, HARU and more!

The fun also doesn’t stop at sundown—hit the dance floor or just kick back at our open floor K-Pop Dance Party (6-9 p.m.) to close out the day. For the complete event lineup, see the schedule below. 

All are welcome, admission is free, and no RSVPs required! Join & Share the Facebook Event HERE!
