Embassy gives Cambodia a taste of Korean culture

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea believes that the exchange of culture is the key tool in deepening the friendship between Cambodia and Korea. 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.

First, the Embassy will hold Korea Day for Cambodian workers at the Olympic Stadium (the National Football Stadium and the National Basketball Court) on December 13, which aims to provide Cambodian workers employed at Korean companies with a chance to experience Korean culture and to have a fun with their colleagues.

Second, the embassy will hold the Korean Ambassador’s Cup Taekwondo Competition 2015: Hope for 2023” at Booyoung Taekwondo Center from November 5 to 6.

The taekwondo competition aims to foster young taekwondo athletes in Cambodia. We wish that this competition will contribute the development of taekwondo in Cambodia.

Third, the “Ninth Korean Film Festival: Special Director Lee Jun-ik” will be held at the Legend Cinema in Toul Kork from November 27 to 29. Director Lee Jun-ik will visit Cambodia for the film festival, and his five films will be screened for free.
