About 100 participants partook in the 2023 MMU Melaka Korean Culture Festival at the Main Hall, Melaka campus on 27 May 2023. The event kicked off with a welcoming remark by Dr. Ong Sue Lyn, KSI MMU Director cum LIfE Director and it was officiated by Prof. Dr. Wong Eng Kiong, Vice President of Student Experience and Entrepreneurship Development (VP SEED).
The event aimed to encourage people to learn more about Korea and its culture in a fun way as well as to elevate the social engagement of KSI MMU Melaka with the community. The attendees enjoyed tasty Korean food such as tteokbokki (rice cake) and eomuk (fish cake). On top of that, they also played Korean traditional games like jegichagi, gonggi, yut-nori, ddakji.
Another interesting activity was when they wrote their names using the Korean alphabet (hangeul), and it created a lot of excitement for the participants. All in all, the event also witnessed two winners who walked away with Samsung Galaxy Earbuds with the Korean gift box and 10 finalists who received KFC vouchers. It is a great and wonderful experience for those who love to discover different cultures and information, especially about Korea.
Congratulations to the winners and committee members for the successful event!
