he festival included many activities promoting Korean culture such as trying on hanbok, introduction of tourist attractions and traditional crafts, promotion of small and medium enterprises’ products, learning how to make Kimchi, Korean culture quiz, and traditional games from the Land of Kimchi.
This year’s festival featured booths introducing a range of Korean products such as fruits, ginseng, nutritious drinks, mixed noodles, tokbokki, and other traditional Korean dishes.
In addition, the audience also enjoyed a special art performance program and a qualifying round for the K-pop Lovers Festival in Hanoi.
