East Asian Studies Center and the Korean Students Association bring Korea to Bloomington on November 15. The half-day Korean Night event kicks off at 3 p.m. at the Virgil T. DeVault Alumni Center (1000 E. 17th St.) across from Assembly Hall. Participants can try their hand at traditional games, paper folding and writing their names in Hangeul (the Korean alphabet). There will also be Hanbok to try on and take photographs in. Cultural performances (3:30-5:30pm) include K-pop, a Taekwondo exhibition, lively samulnori and graceful gayageum playing, and an original Korean rap song from East Asian Studies senior Grant Siegel. Ohio State University Professor Chan E. Park, a Pansori expert, will sing a brief Korean folk opera and then explain the story and genre in English. Guests will also be treated to a sampling of Korean cuisine and a screening of the 2012 award-winning film "Masquerade" (Gwanghae) [Korean with English subtitles]. Movie showing from 7-9pm.
