To bolster Korea - ASEAN relations, the Festival program seeks to introduce aspects of Korea's culture and arts to local audiences in en effort to enhance mutual understanding and encourage closer cooperation. Especially for people who are familiar with Korea's popular culture (K-pop music and Korean Wave), the Festival activities will offer an ideal opportunity to enjoy Korea-related experiences in their home countries.
