From October 12 to 16, Canadians are invited to take part in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Vancouver. The Consulate works tirelessly to enrich the relationship between Korea and Canada and support Korean community and businesses in Western Canada.
Due to the pandemic, the entertaining cultural events will be available to the public through a website that will launch on Monday, October 12.
The weeklong virtual event will feature free Korean films like The Tunnel, The Battle of Jangsari, Train to Busan, House of Hummingbird, and Gonjiam.
The horror movie Train to Busan is a must-watch zombie apocalypse flick that will get viewers in the mood for Halloween.
House of Hummingbird is a South Korean drama that follows a 14-year-old girl through Seoul as she searches for love. The film received an impressive 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
All of the popular motion pictures will be offered in English and Korean.
Additionally, the online installment of Korean Culture Week will include congratulatory messages from VIPs, a photo exhibition, and several opportunities to win exciting prizes.
