To accompany Korea Tourism Organization’s (KTO) newly launched tagline “Imagine Your Korea” during an Opening Ceremony together with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism from Korea, KTO will be hosting the K-Festival 2014 @ Malaysia to ignite the K-Imagination of Hallyu (Korean wave) fans in Malaysia.
With the growing influence of all things Korean and Hallyu becoming a part of the Malaysian lifestyle, KTO aims to set their imagination alight with an exciting experiential showcase of K-Culture, K-Beauty, K-Food, K-Trend, K-Tech, K-Pop and K-Performance from August 8 - 10, 2014 at Centre Court, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
This multi-sensorial showcase comes just in time as the Hallyu craze has taken Malaysia by storm since the legendary K-drama “Winter Sonata” aired. KTO is banking on the Hallyu’s widespread appeal to draw even more travelers and Hallyu fans to visit dynamic and progressive Korea through the forthcoming K-Festival @ Malaysia event.
The K-Beauty part of the festival will be one of the most extensive, and highly anticipated amongst female fans.
Free consultation will be available for wedding couples at the K-Wedding exhibition with one lucky winner getting a chance to don an elaborate wedding costume in a special photography session. K-Beauty enthusiasts can enjoy two different K-Beauty interactive experiences onsite as well.
The K-Festival will also highlight dynamic K-performances on stage featuring special appearances by four members of the K-pop band MBLAQ: Seung Ho, G.O., Cheon Dung and MIR. K-pop star HAHA, one of the cast members of the highly popular television reality-variety show “Running Man” will also be in attendance.
Local dance talents and finalists of the K-pop cover dance competition: MyKTQ2014 Finale - Malaysian Dance Competition will be strutting their nifty moves followed by a dazzling Korea’s Royal Hanbok Fashion Show.
K-artists Painters Hero will take performing arts to entertaining new levels while the performance of the Kayarang (Korean zither, a traditional musical stringed instrument) will add to the K-Culture experience in addition to Korean food cooking demonstrations and tasting.
For K-Technology fans, the LED and interactive kiosk will proffer hands-on game-playing and photo-taking zones featuring Korea’s advance interactive technology.
The K-Festival 2014 @ Malaysia is organized by Korea Tourism Organization and supported by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea. For more information, please contact Korea Tourism Organization, kindly contact:
