The everything-Korean “K-Street Festival” has already started and we’re excited to see all of Korea’s popular activities and trends showcased in the event.
Organized by the Korean Cultural Center (KCC), in partnership with Bonifacio High Street and United Korean Community Association, the two-day free festival which runs from May 31 to June 1 (and a culminating event on June 2) has seven staging areas themed to showcase the Korean trends that are popular in the country. The K Street Festival aims to become a platform in which the Filipinos can come together in fun and entertainment.
In case you aren’t sure yet what to expect, the first two days of K-Street Festival will have seven stations all filled with activities and even chances to win raffle prizes! Here’s your guide to them.
Different food stalls and concessionaires selling and offering authentic Korean food are available in this booth. Visitors who will take a photo of the Korean food and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #KStreetFestivalBGC will get a chance to win special prizes.
In partnership with VIU Philippines and Asianovela Channel, visitor’s knowledge on Korean dramas will be tested to win prizes. Movie screenings and special activities are also available for visitors.
