A one-day Korean Carnival was organised at HELP’s Subang 2 campus in Subang Bestari recently.
It celebrated the diversity of the Korean culture from its fascinating traditions such as the beautiful hanbok to beauty and fashion, games and last but not least, Korean entertainment.
Again, it proved popular and this time the theme covered both modern and traditional Korea, with street buskers, art and also Korean K-Pop, traditional street food and Korean cooking.
The foyer of the campus was lined with various types of Korean food products, games and also the appearance of Robert Kun, a famous Korean busker who made it all the more exciting.
Among the booths, “Know your name in Hangul”, simply translated means knowing your name in Korean, a spicy ramen challenge where the students were required to race against time to consume a bowl of spicy ramen, a K-Pop dance tutorial for those wishing to master the art of K-Pop dance and finally, the highlight of the event, a K-Pop dance competition.
There was something for everyone and of course, the most popular event was the K-Pop dance competition, which saw 15 local K-pop bands taking part.
Their slick moves and catchy music had the crowds on their feet swaying to the music too.
HELP University has an ongoing Korean exchange programme, which allows its students to attend summer programmes at Pusan National University, Kyunghee University, Kookmin University and Kyonggu University. HELP University hosted its first Korean Carnival in 2016, which was a hit with students.
