Thanks to the Hallyu wave!
Korean Film Festival remains one of the landmark events of KCC’s Kolorful Adventures campaign. Of course, this takes its inspiration from the colorful Korean culture that has been the playground of most Filipinos. This, then, started with the advent of the Hallyu Wave. It also has become the companion of many in weathering the ongoing pandemic.
Organized under the Korean Cultural Center and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Philippines. 2021 Korean Film Festival: Full House, Fun for All remains in partnership with Korea Film Council, and Film Development Council of the Philippines.
