Calligraphy is an art that is defined by a drop of ink at the end of the brush. It does not accept even the slightest hesitation from the inked brush. This is why the calligraphy Practitioner must know how to concentrate, manage one’s mood and control one’s own emotion. Lack of concentration leads to mistakes. This is why Koreans usually say that they can learn self-control and concentration through calligraphy. The course will also provide knowledge of the Korean language through the practice of writing the 24 basic Korean characters (10 consonants and 14 vowels).

Teacher: Jounghee Kim

The Life of the artist Jeounghee Kim has developed in two main areas: calligraphy and Plastic art. The four years of professional practice of calligraphy under the guidance of calligrapher Yoon Gil-sun brought him the second prize of calligraphy completion in his youth.

You can feel the elegance of such traditional clothes by seeing the hanbok you have seen previously in various media.

Through multimedia exhibitions, you can vividly appreciate traditional Korean clothes worn by the main characters in K-dramas that led the Korean Wave, such as 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds', ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’, and ‘The Treacherous.’ Also, you can learn about the tradition and beauty of the hanbok through an interview with costume director Lee Jin-hee.

Korean Book Club - 'Lemon' by Kwon Yeo-sun
Korean Book Club - 'Lemon' by Kwon Yeo-sun (image credit: brussels.korean-culture.org)

Discover Korean literature and explore its various themes in KCC's monthly Korean Book Club.

BOOKCLUB;

For our first book club of the year, this month we are going to discuss the novel ‘Lemon’ by Kwon Yeo-sun.  

'Parasite' meets 'The Good Son' in this piercing psychological portrait of three women haunted by a brutal, unsolved crime.  

About the book- ‘Lemon’

This is not a murder story. It is the story of those left behind.

Parasite meets The Good Son in this piercing psychological portrait of three women haunted by a brutal, unsolved crime.

In the summer of 2002, nineteen-year-old Kim Hae-on was murdered in what became known as the High School Beauty Murder. There were two suspects: Shin Jeongjun, who had a rock-solid alibi, and Han Manu, to whom no evidence could be pinned. The case went cold. 

Seventeen years pass without justice, and the grief and uncertainty take a cruel toll on her younger sister, Da-on, in particular. Unable to move on with her life, Da-on tries in her own twisted way to recover some of what she's lost, ultimately setting out to find the truth of what happened. 

Shifting between the perspectives of Da-on and two of Hae-on's classmates struck in different ways by her otherworldly beauty, Lemon ostensibly takes the shape of a crime novel. But identifying the perpetrator is not the main objective here: Kwon Yeo-sun uses this well-worn form to craft a searing, timely exploration of privilege, jealousy, trauma, and how we live with the wrongs we have endured and inflicted in turn. 

'Discovering whodunnit isn't really the point here; Lemon is a subtle, often intense meditation on the after-effects of violence' Guardian.

'Chilling, suspenseful, and disconcerting... I couldn't put it down and read deep into the night until I finished it, with my heart hammering' Frances Cha, author of If I Had Your Face

'Highly original... Once I finished it, much of it slipped into my subconscious' Daily Telegraph

About the Author – Kwon Yeo-sun

Kwon Yeo-sun is an award-winning Korean writer. She has won the Sangsang Literary Award, Oh Yeongsu Literature Award, Yi Sang Literary Prize, Hankook Ilbo Literary Award, Tong-ni Literature Prize, and Lee Hyo-seok Literary Award. Lemon is her first novel to be published in the English language.

About the translator – Janet Hong

Janet Hong is a writer and translator based in Vancouver, Canada. She received the TA First Translation Prize and the LTI Korea Translation Award for her translation of Han Yujoo's The Impossible Fairy Tale, which was also a finalist for both the 2018 PEN Translation Prize and the National Translation Award. Her recent translations include Ha Seong-nan's Bluebeard's First Wife, Ancco's Nineteen, and Keum Suk Gendry-Kim's Grass.

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly presents Cut Copy Paste, a new exhibition that features multidisciplinary works by contemporary Korean artists Soon Yul Kang @soonyulkang and Suhyeon Kim @suhyeon.kim.la, who employ repetitive, manual techniques to create contemplative paper collages, wax sculptures, and perforated canvases. Showcasing 31 pieces in total, this exhibition shines a spotlight on the artists’ physical materials and processes as a means of exploring more abstract, implied themes of mindfulness, harmony, and loss.

Cut Copy Paste is guest curated by Hannah Shambroom of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. In Shambroom’s words, Soon Yul Kang layers small pieces of handmade Hanji paper into mesmerizing collages and small, spherical sculptures. For each work, she writes and rewrites a single word – such as “love,” “mother,” “or “human” – in dark ink onto traditional Korean mulberry paper. She then cuts the words into small rectangular segments, from which she forms hypnotic, circular compositions. The ritualistic nature of her process explores harmonious opposites: universal and personal, light and dark, singular and collective. As each word is repeated, its meaning is amplified, mirroring how the small paper pieces come together to form a larger whole.

Cut Copy Paste will remain on view from February 4 through March 23, 2022 (walk-in hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., excluding 12 – 1 p.m., Monday – Friday). No Reservation Required

The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly presents Cut Copy Paste, a new exhibition that features multidisciplinary works by contemporary Korean artists Soon Yul Kang and Suhyeon Kim, who employ repetitive, manual techniques to create contemplative paper collages, wax sculptures, and perforated canvases. Showcasing 31 pieces in total, this exhibition shines a spotlight on the artists’ physical materials and processes as a means of exploring more abstract, implied themes of mindfulness, harmony, and loss.

Cut Copy Paste is guest curated by Hannah Shambroom of the National Museum of Women in the Arts. In Shambroom’s words, Soon Yul Kang layers small pieces of handmade Hanji paper into mesmerizing collages and small, spherical sculptures. For each work, she writes and rewrites a single word – such as “love,” “mother,” “or “human” – in dark ink onto traditional Korean mulberry paper.

The ritualistic nature of her process explores harmonious opposites: universal and personal, light and dark, singular and collective. As each word is repeated, its meaning is amplified, mirroring how the small paper pieces come together to form a larger whole.

In her cut pieces, Suhyeon Kim makes precise, lace-like incisions into painted canvases, creating texture and pattern by removing material. By doing so, negative space becomes a focal point in her work, forming beauty out of emptiness. In several works, she scatters bits of the removed canvas on the ground below, a reminder of what has been taken away. Kim employs a different approach for her wax sculptures, stacking paraffin blocks to build solid forms. While these techniques may seem to be in opposition, Kim points out that when the wax is heated, it eventually melts into nothing – a different sort of reductive action.

For both artists, the process is a meditative practice. Cut Copy Paste offers a glimpse into their opposing but complementary approaches to seeking balance and mindfulness amid a chaotic world.

Cut Copy Paste will remain on view from February 4 through March 23, 2022 (walk-in hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., excluding 12 – 1 p.m., Monday – Friday). The virtual guided tour, offering an inside look at each artist’s creative themes, processes, and inspirations, will release through the KCCDC YouTube and Instagram channels (@KoreaCultureDC).
