Korea around the world

This page is not dedicated to the Korean language only, but also culture in general. As I come across initiatives I will make sure to share them with you. I’m pretty biased towards Northern Europe since that happens to be where I spend most of my time, which means that I am bound to overlook a lot of interesting organisations so please share if you come across something exciting regardless of location.

Websites:
Cosmetics: http://www.peachandlily.com/ Lotions and potions galore! (US based)

Culture Centres and the like:

Belgium, Brussels:
Check out their website here

Denmark:
Korea klubben, several cities:
A club predominantly for Korean adoptees in Denmark. It is not tied to a single city so it is possible to join even if you’re not based in Copenhagen. The club arranges everything from lectures and discussions about adoption to trips to Korea and Korean language classes.
Only adoptees and their families can obtain a “regular” membership, but others who wish to support and participate in the activities can become “supporting members”. For more information, check out their website.

United Kingdom, London:
Korean lessons are offered free of charge. For more info, click here.
Notice that they have one acceptance round per year for these classes, and acceptance is randomised rather than based on first-come-first-served.
They also organise movie nights, movie screenings, exhibitions and they even have a Korean library and an internship programme.

Are you aware of “something Korean” that might be of interest to other readers? Please share 🙂

    Hi,
    You might want to add another Korean Cultural Center in Europe. A year ago a Korean cultural center in Brussels. It pretty much is identical to the London based cultural center. I go there to use their library to study Korean. I can really recommend anyone visiting Belgium to pay a visit there since its staff is so friendly!

    I wrote a personal post about them: http://hangukshigan.wordpress.com/2014/10/27/learning-korean-2-korean-cultural-centers/
    Their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/koreanculturalcenterbrussels
    Their website: http://brussels.korean-culture.org
    Their adress: regentschapstraat 4, 1000 Brussels, Belgium
