1/12/2018 - The Hidden Wonders of Korea on February 3, 2018

On Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 12-2pm in the Kingsley Room of the Southbury Public Library, the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project will give a vibrant presentation about the rich history and culture of Korea.

This program put on by the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project will include two short documentaries, a reenactment of a traditional Korean wedding ceremony, and a traditional Korean meal. One documentary will focus on King Sejong the Great, an enlightened monarch from the 15th century Korea. His motto was “The duty of a king is to love his people. That is all.” With this belief, King Sejong initiated numerous cultural achievements and scientific inventions to improve the welfare of his people. The other film will illustrate some of the modern-day achievements of Korea. Following the films, there will be a reenactment of a traditional Korean wedding ceremony, in beautiful and vibrant traditional clothing. There will also be a traditional Korean meal after the presentation.

The Korean Spirit and Culture Project (KSCPP), based in New York, is a nonprofit organization that was formed in September 2005 to promote awareness of Korean history and culture to the wider world. KSCPP is designed to introduce Korea’s long and rich artistic history, the spirit of its people, and its cultural values. In appreciation for the United States' support for Korea during the Korean War and in the years that followed, KSCPP has held 1800 complimentary presentations throughout the US so far.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Space is limited and registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register.
