(Washington): With the Korean Wave of pop culture stronger than ever, Hallyu Camp 2014 is set to bring together a new class of American teens and Korean youth interns for a weeklong exploration of K-Pop's cultural roots, August 11-15.

This year the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. partners with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission to offer an expanded program and a new venue at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland.

Hallyu Camp is designed to give young adult fans of Korean pop culture a deeper understanding of the country, people, and society from which Korean pop culture originates, under the theme "Experience Korea Together". American campers collaborate with Korean peers in workshops, language learning, discussion, and creative multimedia projects led by local arts specialists and professional instructors from the KCC's King Sejong Institute. The program also appeals to parents by fostering cultural competency and giving meaningful social context to Korea's trendy pop culture scene, which is often rooted in traditional culture and society.

Korean pop culture, including K-Pop music, TV dramas, and films, has steadily grown into a global phenomenon. Hallyu, or The Korean Wave, encompasses all of these trending genres and has gained a passionate global fan community.

First offered in 2012, Hallyu Camp is an approximately 30-hour day camp, taking place Monday - Friday, August 11 – 15, 2014, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm daily. Tuition is $150 per student. Media coverage is welcome, but press should notify the above contact in advance.
