Korea Plaza in Kuala Lumpur

If you subscribe to the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) newsletter, you would have received an e-mail on the Korea Plaza.

For those not in the know, KTO will be opening a Korea Plaza at the Ground Floor of Menara Hap Seng (formerly MUI Plaza) in Kuala Lumpur.

Dancers perform at a reenactment of the royal wedding ceremony
of King Sukjong and his Queen Inhyeon at the Gyeongbok Palace
in Seoul on Oct 24. - Yonhap

Here are some of the things K-popped! Malaysians will be able to do there:
a) watch free movies, dramas and cultural performances
b) attend fan meetings and tourism seminars
c) visit various exhibitions (tea/ food tasting, Hanbok fittings etc.)

Apart from that, if you want to learn Korean for free, classes start on Nov 13 onwards. It will be held every Thursday from 5.30pm to 7pm.

Other activities include learning Korean songs (every Thursday, 1pm to 2pm).

Free movie screenings will be held every Monday at 1.30pm to 3pm. The list includes:
Meanwhile the drama that will be shown is Hyun Bin's Snow Queen. Two episodes will be aired at each screening. The free screenings will be held every Friday at 1.30pm to 3pm.

However, DO NOT just turn up for the events as you'll need to send in an application form to indicate what you are interested in. (Want to know more? Write to klkoreaplaza@gmail.com before Nov 2).

Great effort by KTO in promoting all things Korean, but are they only targeting housewives?

I won't be able to attend ANY of these activities since regular Janes like us need to work for a living. I'm sure the younger K-popped! Malaysians will have school/college/university to attend too, no?

Wish granted and your kimchi kiss ♥ there it goes. Am assuming you are a female lol..haha. Things are really spicing up in Kuala Lumpur. The Koreans are finally here. Korean free movies, dramas, and cultural performances! talk about a big boost to Kuala Lumpur Tourism. About the free Korean language lessons, pickup your school bags, lunch box, wear your back to school shoes and head to class. What is the color of their Korean School Bus? Is it Yellow? haha.

hey guys, if any of you manage to go for any of the events, maybe you can make a suggestion to have events for non-students; ie. people who needs to be somewhere permanently from approximately 9am - 6pm on weekdays.
