With travel still off the cards due to the pandemic, the Korean Culture Centre in Hong Kong (KCC) and the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Hong Kong are bringing a taste of South Korea to Hong Kong this October with the 11th edition of Festive Korea. This is the first Korean cultural festival held in seven regions including Hong Kong, which features a variety of events including the first-ever Korean Square 2021.
Taking place from October 29–31 at the PMQ Courtyard and Marketplace, Korea Square is a three-day event and the first large-scale comprehensive program hosted by KCC. Visitors can enjoy a range of Korean food, snacks, liquor and Korean lifestyle products that will be showcased in the marketplace.
Fans of the Netflix series, Squid Game will be able to play familiar Korean traditional games such as Guseulchigi (play using marbles with the goal to win other players’ marbles), Ddakji (throwing paper cards to flip another players’ cards), Dalgona candy challenge (using a needle to cut out a shape from a sweet honeycomb candy), Yutnori (board dice game using four wooden sticks), Jegichagi (kicking a Jegi into the air and keeping it aloft) and Tuho (throwing javelin sticks into a narrow-necked jar) and more.
