Korea Day was filled with delish (free!) food and fun cultural events. Attendees were allowed to try on Hanbok (traditional Korean silk organza gowns) for photo ops.
Sorea giving traditional folk music a whole new sound and look. These ladies are hot!
Korea Day (Aug 16, 2011) is all about giving everyone a taste of Korea’s eclectic culture, so with that, Central Park’s Naumberg Bandshell was the site of delicious Korean food (free!) and fun contests. My favorite was the K-Pop competition where non-Koreans nailed the difficult language down to win round trip flights to Korea! The day also included several live performances. I had the pleasure of opening/closing the festive day which included a Sorea concert. The 5 girl group is basically a defibrillator to Korean folk music. Yeah, yeah, the instruments they play have been around for hundreds of years, but the way they rock ‘em is totally new. Um…plus, they’re easy on the eyes:) It’s Spice Girls meets ancient instruments! I ran into a bunch of Good Day New York fans at the event and in true Korean fashion, I made them do silly Asian poses for pictures. It’s such a joy for me to share highlights of my culture. South Korea is the size of Indiana, yet, with hard work, it has become the 12th largest economy in the world. I genuinely believe that kind of growth comes from the fact that Koreans are so inclusive and welcoming. With that…I invite you to check out the rest of my pics in the below gallery.
