On July 7th, the 140th anniversary of the German-Korean relationship was celebrated. “Korea Day” was held at the Hohe Landesschule in Hanau by the non-profit organization “Ichhaltedich”. "Korea Day" is a cultural exchange program that, among other things, presents Korean culture, history and society. Students and parents learned more about Korean culture through various workshops and a Korean pop music concert.

The event was prepared by around 20 Korean students and 10 German volunteers, in which around 120 students from this school took part.

In addition to workshops such as Korean Course, K-Kiosk, Taekwondo, Kimchi, Hanbok and K-POP, students were able to gain new experiences by watching K-Pop performances and tasting Korean food.

Among the various workshops, the Kimchi Academy was the most popular among students. Not only were they able to make kimchi themselves and thus have a new experience, but they were also able to taste the Korean spiciness.

During the Korean course, students were able to learn the language that particularly interested them because of Korean series. Towards the end of the lesson, the students were able to write their names in the newly learned language and were satisfied. In the Hanbok course, the students learned about the history of Hanbok, wore them themselves and took photos to remember the beautiful elegance of the traditional clothes.

In addition, students were also able to experience Asian culture with their own bodies by trying out activities such as Taekwondo and K-POP, which enriched the sports activities of students who already wanted more sports in school.

The second half consisted of various K-pop performances, a band and a mind lecture. In addition, the students were able to try Korean food such as bulgogi, tteokbokki, shikhye, etc., which are not so easy to find in Germany.

The world-famous K-POP also found its way into the Hanau school. The dance team "One Wave" performed dances by Blackpink and BTS, to which the students who were filming everything reacted with loud cheers and screams of joy.

The deputy headmaster then gave a welcoming speech and an inspiring mind lecture was given by the “Korea Day” organization.

Using the example of kimchi, the students were given a new perspective on “change.” The speaker Andreas explained that Chinese cabbage needs to be pickled in salt to ultimately become kimchi. In the same way, we also have to be prepared to accept changes and new things.

Athemis: Well my name is Athemis and I thought Korea Day was the best - actually everything was very good, but I was very interested in calligraphy because I always wanted to learn writing. And it was very helpful, the teacher was very, very good. And I understood everything. It was very good. I like Korea Day. There should be more often.

Efthelia: Yes, my name is Efthelia Shimshek. I'm in tenth grade. I like going to the gym. It's just my hobby. In any case, what I liked best about Korea Day was the Taekwondo class. That's where we learned how to defend ourselves. And it was just very, very crazy because I was doing somersaults. Two in a row. And yes, I demonstrated it in front of the class. So I didn't have that much fear or anxiety or anything like that. Absolutely, yes guys, I highly recommend it. There's kimchi. It's so delicious, people. Okay, bye.

Charlie: Korea Day was great. There were many different stations. I liked Taekwondo and Kpop dancing the best because you were more active there, but writing, language and cooking kimchi were also great.
