    At the forum titled “Global Hallyu Forum – Surf the Hallyu Wave”, Seon-ye, the leader of K-pop group Wonder Girls will perform as a lecturer. Marja Vongerichten who presided “Kimchi Chronicles” aired by the U.S. public broadcasting company PBS in 13 episodes, Mark Russell, who authored “Pop Goes Korea” that introduces Hallyu to readers in English speaking countries as the first generation of Hallyu in Canada, and Grady Hendrix, who founded the Asian Film Festival in New York will also appear on the podium.

     
    They will talk about the current status of the global Hallyu waves, their prospects and the lecturers’ own personal experiences in a story-telling way. Korean Culture Center plans also to carry out “Project Hallyu” to collect the fresh ideas for expansion of Korean Hallyu culture. The Center will support the expenses for the project in the process of collecting and evaluating the students’ ideas and programs about such various Korean subjects as K-pop, Korean drama, Korean movies, Korean food and Korean culture.
