In 2019 Denmark and South Korea is celebrating 60 years with diplomatic relations. It is an ideal opportunity to create a push for Danish culture in South Korea. That is why 2019 has been designated cultural year for Denmark and South Korea.

The blooming Korean Culture

South Korea is a country with a long and rich history, not least cultural history. South Korea has influenced the East Asian region for many ways, while the country itself has been influenced from the outside, most importantly by Buddhism and Confucianism. To this day many traditional festivals are celebrated with traditional dance, attire and music. Side by side modern culture is blossoming; youth in South Korea are big consumers of technology and computer games, while the unique Korean pop music is gaining fans in all corners of the world.

Interest in Denmark

In South Korea there is an increasing interest in Denmark and the Danish values. Not least our lifestyle phenomena such as the ubiquitous “hygge”, our flexible workplace organization, education system and high level of welfare spark South Koreans' interest. We will use this momentum to promote Danish art, design and culture.
