Students celebrate Korean Night cultural event at IU

Korean students perform a K-Pop number for patrons at Korean night.

An event titled “Korean Night”, presented by the East Asian Studies Center and co-sponsored by the Institute for Korean Studies, took place at Wilkie Auditorium on Saturday, March 30.

“Korean Night”, an event that took place from 12:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., was divided into six segments: a speaker giving a lecture, a plethora of cultural activities, an opening ceremony, a featured performance, a Taste of Korea, and a community performance. All of this took place on North Rose Avenue in the Wilkie Auditorium, a beige building.

The cultural activities consisted of mask-making, calligraphy, making peace ribbons, and trying on Korean ceremonial clothing. When it came to the Taste of Korea, local Korean restaurants lent their delicacies for the event goers to feast upon, a plate consisting of a beef stir fry, a rice cake, rice noodles, kimchi with pickled cabbage. For the community performance, members of the Korean Students Association performed

a K-pop dance number. It’s no secret that Korean Night was a huge success for celebrating diversity.
