Korean Ambassador Lee, Action Quan, (Juan Carlos Latchman), Sarina Bland, Hyebin Honf=g

Last month Heaven and I (Sarina) were invited, alongside Trinidad’s K-Pop Ambassador DJ “Action Quan”, to lunch with  South Korea’s Ambassador Lee . It’s been a fun ride so far working on this project and seeing it grow. Can’t wait to show you all more of what we have in the works! So proud of all that our little project has achieved and fostered in its short time and the collaborations it is bringing about. I am also thrilled to share that we’ve also been picked up for a third season by the South Korean Embassy!

Thanks so much to all of you who have shared words of support along the way and who pop onto our InstaLives! It really makes our day! KimKats 화이팅! 😸

At the Corner, students and general public can immerse themselves in Korean culture through various audio, visual and textual contents. Hundreds of Korean novels and poetry books shelved in the Corner offer an opportunity for Trinidadians to see hidden sides of Korean society, learn about unknown history, and feel the deeper meaning of its philosophy. Visitors can also enjoy a wide variety of Korean films and TV series by using modern technology that is well equipped within the venue. Besides books, films, and TV series, the Korea Corner provides educational resources for persons who intend to learn the Korean language.
