Sorry, no festivals here.
From its K-pop to its kimchi, Korean culture can be found in cities all over the world, from New York to Jinju, South Korea. So when you find a Korean festival nearby (shouldn’t be hard to do, for real, check out the calendar above), put a smile on and listen to the music, whether it’s modern K-pop or Korean folk music. Dabble in traditional foods and look at the gorgeous lanterns and mesmerizing parades. Thanks to these Korean festivals, from the Seoul Lantern Festival to the Los Angeles Korean Festival, the rest of the world is able to absorb the beauty of Korean culture.
