Embassy gives Cambodia a taste of Korean culture

Just as the embassy prepared colourful events in the first half of this year, such as the 2015 K-Pop World Festival, the 2015 Quiz on Korea and the Cambodia-Korea Fellowship Classical Music Concert, the embassy will also prepare more amusing events over the rest of 2015.
