Building on rising international interest in Korean pop culture and the history of cultural relations between Korea and the United Kingdom, the 12th Korean cultural center in the world has opened in London.

Supervised by Korea’s Culture and Tourism Ministry, Britain’s first Korean Cultural Center launched in Trafalgar Square Wednesday (Jan. 30) with a reception featuring Tea Music, a multidisciplinary performance based on traditional Korean tea ceremonies.

Center director Choi Kyu-hak said, “We hope that the Korean Cultural Center will become a vital resource for those interested in engaging Korea’s diverse and vibrant cultural scene, by offering outstanding events at our major new venue in central London.”
