The 17th Annual International Korean UCC Festival 2018



 The Korea University Korean Language Center is hosting the 17th Annual International Korean UCC Festival. Starting this year, this event will
be held on the eve of Hangul Proclamation Day, in the hopes that it will grow
into an international event celebrating the holiday hosted by a Korean
language education institution. We anticipate that all participants will not
only learn and share their perspectives and understanding of Korean Culture,
but also exchange information about their own cultures. We also expect this
event to build a bridge between Korea and other countries. We hope that all
those interested in Korean language and culture will participate and enjoy
this exciting event.
