KASS presents annual Korean Culture Day at Smith College

The group Korean American Students of Smith is holding its final event of the year—Korean Culture Day—on Saturday April 20, 2013. Korean Culture Day is an annual spring social gathering for friends and families to come and indulge in delicious Korean food, and participate in various Korean traditional games and other cultural activities. In the past, activities included Korean origami and fan making, Korean “butgeulsi” or calligraphy, and Korean games such as “Ddakji chigi” (a slap-match game played with a traditional paper toy).

This year, Korean Culture Day will be serving homemade Korean mung-bean pancakes, or “bin dae duk”. Students and family members will get the chance to learn and play various Korean traditional games such as “Yut Nori/Yunnori” (a board game played mainly during Korean New Year), “Gonggi” (a popular Korean children’s game played using pebbles), and “Jegichagi” (a Korean traditional outdoor game). Other cultural activities will include “hoddeok” cooking class (a delicious flour dough pancake filled with sugar syrup or honey inside), and possibly a Korean Fan Dance workshop.

This event is open not only to Smith College students and faculty but also to the entire Pioneer Valley community, including Five College students and the city of Northampton. Korean Culture Day is free of charge, and will be held at the Smith College Unity House from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.
