A Korea-themed cultural festival unfolded in Washington, D.C. earlier this month, offering locals a night of music, fun, and celebration of Korean culture.
Some 900 Washington locals enjoyed the night to the fullest at the festival "Korea Seoul Train" that took place at Smithsonian's Freer Gallery of Art on June 8. It is part of the biannual event "Asia After Dark" launched in 2009 by the Freer Gallery that, each time, spotlights cultures of different countries of Asia. The event was presented in association with the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C., and the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO).
At around 7 p.m., a throng of visitors dressed seemingly well in accordance with the recommended dress code -- "Gangnam Style" and Seoul street fashion -- gathered at the venue that was transformed into a contemporary Korean cultural hub. It showcased a fusion of Korean pop music, fashion, art, food, digital experimentation, and more.
