International visitors to the Seoul Global Cultural Center May 2-13 will be able to enjoy a variety of traditional culture events, such as trying on hanbok, making a fan, and learning traditional etiquette. The events planned will focus on family culture, in celebration of May being Family Month, due to the many family-oriented holidays.

On May 2, participants can create a fan with beautiful calligraphy, while on May 4 the program will focus on hanbok for children. May 8, in celebration of Parents Day, guests can make a carnation out of hanji (traditional paper) to give to their parents, as is customary in Korea.

In recognition of Teachers Day, May 13 will feature a traditional school just like in historical dramas, with a real etiquette teacher. Participants will be able to learn the proper way to greet others, dine, and show reverence. In addition to these etiquette lessons, another lesson will include learning to write with a brush, making for a special memory.

All experience programs are operating in an advanced reservation system, with some programs only being available to foreigners living in Korea. More information on the programs and schedule can be found on the Events Calendar section of the official website.
