Turkey—Korea-Fans’ Hansik Sampling
Korea-Fans’ eighty members gathered together to try their hands at traditional Korean rice cake. They sampled diverse types of rice cake and enjoyed them with traditional green tea. The members got busy making the rice cake the day before the event, which turned out to be a great success. The colorful songpyeon was a delightful treat to the eyes, and topokki became the most popular food on site. The members also gave a presentation on the history of rice cake, after which they watched K-pop music videos. This event was the first and the largest Korea-Fans event in the small city of Samsun. The members also had the chance to practice for the K-Pop Dance Day slated for October 3, 2012.

Korean cultural community, Hallyu Mexican Lovers, hosted an outing of Korean idol groups’ fan clubs. Some 600 fan club members came together and played sports and learned K-pop dances.

The event was a great success, earning praises from the Korean embassy and culture center. It’s likely to develop into an annual event in the future. Mexican broadcasters DRIVER OF TOP TEN and CHANNEL40 REPORT even covered the event.
