In May, also known as Family Month in Korea, the Seoul Global Cultural Center (operated by the Seoul Metropolitan Government) provides a variety of cultural programs so that multicultural families can have a good time together.
The Seoul Global Cultural Center, located in Myeong-dong (a popular tourist destination especially with foreigners), provides a wide range of Korean cultural programs and living information for foreigners living in Korea.
Participants can make carnations using traditional Korean paper, called hanji, and express their thanks to their parents and teachers by giving hand-made paper flowers on Parents’ Day and Teachers’ Day.
In addition, the Seoul Global Cultural Center provides a variety of programs such as Mother-of-pearl Craft for Kids, Hangeul Calligraphy, Tuho Game (arrow-throwing), Sending Post Card to Your Country, and other crafts, so that multicultural families and foreigners living Korea can have a great time together.
