What is Korea Joa?
We have been looking forward to sharing this with our readers for months and the time is finally here. HanCinema has been invited by KOFICE (Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange) to attend ten days of events covering Korean culture and entertainment, including Korean cinema, Kdrama and Kpop. The project, named 'Korea Joa', includes 15 members from 9 nations. The events will take place mainly in Seoul and Busan, where we can also follow the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). Members of the 'Korea Joa' project will be creating content for their respective sites and we will also be collaborating to promote one another's content through social media, giving you a fuller experience.
Our Role in 'Korea Joa'
KOFICE has provided us with a schedule of main events focusing on both the modern and traditional aspects of Korea. These include visiting Hongdae, which is a favorite neighborhood among young people and filming location for dramas such as 'Coffee Prince' and 'My Name is Kim Sam-soon'. We will also be attending MCountdown, visiting the Korean Folk Village, drama filming sets and more. Our coverage of these events and visits will be on our website as well as social accounts and it will be mainly focused on Korean cinema and drama. After the visit is over, we will be posting even more pieces to show you all the goodies we will be gathering there. We will also be doing some giveaways, which might include some signed merchandise.
You have read her pieces on the site and now you get to meet her more personally. HanCinema's correspondent and representative for 'Korea Joa' is none other than our Raine, who has been writing drama episode reviews and more for the site. You will now get to know her as Lisa Espinosa and she will be your guide through this journey of exploration and discovery of all the things we love about Korea. Below you can find a list of her personal, as well as HanCinema's social links, where you can keep track of everything before, during and after the trip. On the social media side and co-planning this visit is HanCinema's writer and community manager, yours truly, Orion. Lisa and I have been planning this diligently and with great joy. We will be keeping you updated and interact with you throughout the trip.
