안녕하세요 and Welcome to SGKprefest

안녕하세요~ The 2nd K-S Supporters Ceremony was held at Joyden Hall, Bugis+ last Tuesday to celebrate the appointment of K-S supporters. In addition, the event was also held in conjunction to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Korea-Singapore diplomatic relations.

The event was proudly graced by His Excellency Suh Chung-uh, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea, who presented the certificates to K-S supporters and gave a congratulatory speech to the participants. In his speech, he mentioned about the growing impact of Korean wave (K-wave) in Singapore which was “much stronger than expected”. He also emphasised the importance to make good use of various opportunities to promote Korean culture.

During the event, various booths were also set-up for participants to enjoy a photoshoot with Korean traditional costume, have a taste of Korean snacks and have a go at Korean traditional games.
