    May is family month in Korea. Accordingly, the Seoul Global Cultural Center will host a variety of cultural programs centering on family for foreign residents and foreign tourists.

    Programs include Hangeul calligraphy (May 2nd), writing a postcard (May 2nd-8th), children’s hanbok-wearing (May 4th), carnation-making (May 8th), and seodang experience (May 13th).

    At the seodang experience program, you can learn about household and school etiquettes from a village teacher and write down your own family motto. An interpreter will be present to provide explanation.

    All interactive programs can be reserved on-line or through onsite visit. Each program will accept up to 20 students on a first-come-first-serve basis.

    The Seoul Global Cultural Center, operated by the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG), offers foreigners useful tips on living in Korea and provides various opportunities to learn about Korean culture through programs on traditional attire, craftwork, dance, Korean cooking, and makeup classes.
