Fun activities and demonstrations in the room for the whole family will include JongiJulpki (paper folding), making Jangseung (guardian spirit poles) using paper towel rolls, playing the game of Yut, writing your name in Korean, and coloring activities for younger visitors.

Everyone will enjoy playing with Korean drums, and wearing traditional Korean clothing.

We will also feature performance by Ooleemm on the center stage on Saturday at 4pm and 5pm. The full schedule of activities is here.
