It was a busy weekend at the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines last July 9 with the start of various classes under its programs for cultural exchange.

Among these was the K-Pop singing class wherein students practically had their own noraebang 노래방 (think videoke) in the classroom.

Taekwondo classes also kicked off at the auditorium as students learned more about the popular sport that combines both physical and mental discipline for self-defense.

The class for the traditional Korean bamboo flute also began with students learning how to make beautiful sounds with the Danso 단소.

Of course, the K-Pop dance classes wouldn’t be left behind as they started with the orientation of the aspiring K-Pop dancers.

The traditional Korean dance classes also started with the dancers getting introduced to the Jang-gu 장구, a Korean percussion instrument widely used in traditional Korean dances.

It was also the first day for the Introductory Korean language class wherein the students became familiar with the Korean alphabet or Hangul 한글.

      I believe the plan is to have the next term after this current term which ends some time in September. I’ll post later on when enrollment is open again. ^^

    Ok. Thanks! :p hope it wouldn’t be too hard to get a slot. =p

    • joon 준 says:

      It’s actually hard to get a slot because there are so few slots available. For language classes, I think there are only around 20. Good luck! Fighting! ^^

        35 for the Basic Language class..but honestly, enrollment for Language class is the most sought after class in KCC. The enrollment for the class is closed hours after the registration starts. *shocked* I remember battling my way to KCC to enroll on Basic class (that time there was a typhoon in Metro Manila). Lucky for me, I got the last slot for AM class. I’ll never forget it, but I definitely not regretting it.
