The Korean ambassador expressed his gratitude to Red Sea governor Ahmed Abdallah and Public Library of Egypt officials for hosting Korean Cultural Day, adding that more cultural events will be organised not only in Cairo but in all governorates to promote Korean culture and reinforce cultural exchange with Egypt.
The event was attended by secretary-general of the Red Sea governorate Abdel-Fattah Tammam, a number of the governorate’s executive officials, and director of the Korean Cultural Centre Yang Sang Keun.
The activities of the day included a lecture on Korean culture by director Yang, the representation of traditional Korean dress known as Hanbok, traditional Korean games, traditional fan colouring workshops, a Korean virtual reality experience and Korean music.
The ambassador met with the Red Sea governor on the sidelines of the event, where they discussed enhancing cultural relations between the two countries. The ambassador also said that he expects the number of Korean tourists to Egypt to rise in the future.
