In this pandemic that has changed the times and the way students learn and take their classes, the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines is doing education-theme activities this June.
Among the events is the delicious and fun ChikaHansik: Kimchi Edition. This one-stop digital talk and cooking series takes the viewers on a delightful K-Food adventure with easy-to-cook dishes featuring Korea’s food pride, Kimchi.

Expect to learn how to make Kimchi Sinigang, Kkakdugi Beokkeumbap, Kimchi Jeon, and Budae Jjigae all Fridays of June at 5pm via KCC’s YouTube channel.
More than just allowing many to say 안녕하세요 (hello), 감사합니다 (thank you), and 사랑해요 (I love you), 한국어 – Korean language has actually paved the way for the Philippines and Korea to forge a stronger connection. In this month’s episode of Along with K-Culture: Meet the K-Stans in the Philippines, K-Education brings experts, Special Program in Foreign Language (SPFL) teachers and some students themselves to discuss the growing popularity of the Korean language. The K-Stans episode is on KCC’s official YouTube Channel.
Following the success of last year’s webinar and huge demand for a more detailed talk on K-Drama scriptwriting among the viewers, the Korean Embassy and KCC will hold another K-drama-related webinar on June 30 on KCC’s YouTube Channel. Experts will lead a scriptwriting workshop, give talks on K-drama’s global promotion and marketing. Prizes will be given those sending in their questions for the Q&A Challenge, which is done in partnership with APOP Books.
