The official opening of the first “Korea Corner” project in Romania took place on 28th of May 2021, in the Aula Magna of the Romanian-American University, with a series of events organized by the University’s Romanian – Korean Studies Center and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, with the support of Korea Foundation.
The event was soon highlighted by “KOREAZ”, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea’s public diplomacy channel, within a video, starting from 1:26.
The official opening included cultural moments: Samulnori, a traditional Korean musical moment, contemporary K-pop dances, as well as an exhibition inspired by traditional Korean textile art, Bojagi, and the events continued in the following day with workshops dedicated to Korean culture – fans and traditional Korean masks.
