This year marks the 9th Korea Festival in Singapore. This important festival showcases the Korean culture to Singaporeans through a series of activities and programs. They include speech competition, cultural concerts, Korean Film Festival and end with a Hallyu theme event for all.

The main stream crowd pleasing event is held at Nex from 22-27 November 2016. There will be various theme zones to get everyone from young and old interested and excited.

In the technology zone, you get to try out Samsung Gear VR and LG F1 Simulator- Vroom! Vroom!

Envious of the Korean stars’ perfect skin and faultless looks? Then you can check out Dusol Beauty, Etude House and Shilla Duty Free Shop in the Beauty Zone. Get a makeover or try out the latest looks for the festive season.

If you are craving for food (aren’t we always?), then Food Zone will make you happy with snacks from CJ SEA and Koryo Trading. Kimchi, ramyun, seaweed. Mmmmm….
