If you live in Korea, especially in Seoul, come and visit the Korea Nation Branding Convention 2011 in COEX A Hall, Samsung-dong from August 25 to 28, 2011.
The Convention is opened to public from 10 AM to 6 PM.
(Especially for August 25, it will be opened from 1PM )
It is held by the Presidential Council on Nation Branding. You can find variety of exhibitions, performances and events about Korea, the people, society, culture and business.
The theme for the convention is "Hallyu, into the Future with the World!" (한료 세계와 함께 미래로!)
'Hallyu' is also called "Korean Wave' which means the spread of South Korean culture around the world. The term 'Hallyu' or 'Korean Wave' was created after the great growing of South Korean popularity through entertainment (music, drama, movie, etc) and culture in 1999. Since then, many South Korean actors, actresses, singers gain high popularity not only in Asia but around the world.
If you want to know more about South Korea, come and visit the convention.
If I live in Seoul, I am sure I will go there.
If you go there, please tell me how it was. ^^
