Welcome to Hallyu Camp 2014!
Calling all Korean pop culture fans! Take
a deep dive into the Korean Wave with
K-Pop music, K-Dramas, and K-Movies,
have become a global phenomenon,
with passionate fans all around the
world. All of these exciting genres are
part of Hallyu, or the Korean Wave. Hallyu Camp
2014, offered through the King Sejong Institute Washington, D.C. and in
partnership with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, is
designed to give fans of Korean pop culture a deeper understanding of the country,
people, and society from which Korean pop culture originates. Campers will make new
friends, both Korean and American, and experience what it really means to be Korean
through fun, interactive workshops, cultural lessons, creative projects, discussions, and
Korean meals all designed to connect Korean traditional and pop culture.
What will we accomplish?
Throughout Hallyu Camp, campers will
share their interests in pop culture
while learning about the traditional
arts and values that shape Korean
culture and society today. Side by
side with Korean youth interns,
campers will increase their
knowledge about Korea and its
culture, as well as their cultural
competence. Campers will be immersed in an international setting, learning valuable
skills in etiquette, language, and cultural sensitivity. Students will also compare
American and Korean culture to help identify unique characteristics of both. Campers
who complete the program will receive a certificate of completion from the director of
the Korean Cultural Center to acknowledging their studies.
Most importantly, campers will have fun while learning what Korea is all about!

Lessons, Workshops, and Cultural Themes
Each day of Hallyu Camp is built
around a cultural concept that is key
to understanding Korea. This daily
theme, such as jeong (affection that
binds communities) or hyo (respect
for elders) will be illustrated through
examples from Korean movies,
dramas, television shows, and real
life situations. Students will also experience each
theme with friends and Korean interns through fun activities and workshops.
Daily Cultural Concepts
Jeong (정) is about affection, warmth, compassion, and attachment among people in Korea.
It is a fundamental characteristic of the Korean
people. Because of it, you will feel the warmth
and affection that flow from person to person
in Korea. Through Monday’s lesson, students
will understand why Koreans emphasize the
concept of 우리 (uri), or we, over me, and can
compare the differences between American
individualism and Korean collectivism.
Traditionally, Koreans place others above self.
This love and respect for others is practiced
through chung, hyo, ye (충 효 예). Chung is
loyalty and allegiance for one’s nation, hyo is filial
respect to one’s parents, and ye is manners and
etiquette toward elders and strangers. Tuesday’s
lesson will use brief films and role playing
exercises, while students learn Korean customs
appropriate for different social settings.

Koreans are known for their love of gamu (가무), or singing and dancing. Heung (흥) is the
sense of excitement, joy, and fun,
which puts the zing and zest into
everyday life. It runs throughout
Korean culture from the oldest village
folk dance to the latest K-pop music.
Wednesday’s lesson will include a look
at some traditional Korean storytelling
and literature genres like hyangga
(향가), sijo (시조), and pansori
(판소리), as well as the role of music,
dance, and performance in everyday life.
According to a government survey in 2009, Koreans chose the word sarang (사랑), meaning
love, as the most beautiful word in Korean
language. In fact, you cannot talk about K-Dramas
without the theme of romance. Many Koreans
have a strong sense of nostalgia and a yearning for
their first true love. In Thursday’s lesson, video
clips from K-Dramas and K-Pop music videos will
be used to discuss how love and relationships
among Korean youth differ from those in the
Koreans like to use the terms mat and
meot (맛 and 멋) to describe a variety of
things for their distinctive flavors. In fact, the
two words have the same origin in the Korean
language. Mat is about taste and mood, while
meot is about beauty and style. In Friday’s
lesson, students will learn varied uses of the
two concepts, and taste Korean culture
