Description: A colorful, cultural day full of food, fashion, and music. Sorea, a six-person pop band that mixes modern and Korean traditional music, will perform, followed by several other Korean pop and rap star performances. Guests can then enjoy free food samplings from a Korean Food Exhibition that will offer an array of culinary Korean specialties such as galbi (grilled meats), jabche (stir fried noodles with vegetables), jun (Korean scallion pancake), and of course, the staple Korean condiment, kimchi. There will also be a chance to experience 'dduk-mea chi-gi', the process of making dduk, Korean rice cake. Attendees will also have a chance to win a free round-trip ticket to Korea by competing in the first ever K-POP Contest and showing off their singing and dancing skills.
