Welcome to KCL Korean Hallyu Society!
With the expansion of the Korean entertainment industry and growing connectivity across international media platforms, the Korean cultural wave has never been stronger, and we are definitely feeling the effects at King's!
To celebrate the passion we have for K-Pop, Korean Films and Dramas, Fashion, Food, and the very rich heritage of Korean culture, KCL Hallyu offers you a place to meet like-minded people and share your thoughts, make new friends, and form memories that will stick with you beyond your university life.
We promote an open, welcoming and diverse environment that is inclusive to all, regardless of race, religion, gender or sexuality. So if you are a veteran or a rookie, hard-core stan or just testing the waters, join in! You have a place with us.
We know 2020 is a unique year with its own many challenges, but we will try our best to offer a range of events both online and offline to help us cope during these difficult times!
We have a jam-packed line up for the year ahead...
- Socials: Meet other K-Pop and K-Culture fans and bond over your favourite songs and groups!
- Screenings: Gather to watch hit K-Dramas and movies, and suffer from that second male lead syndrome!
- Restaurant Outings: Discover new Korean restaurants around London, and don't miss out on the Hallyu tradition of K-BBQ+Karaoke
- Karaoke: Put on your idol caps and get ready to sing your socks off (often proceeded by Soju)
- K-Pop Dance: Join our recreational K-Pop dance workshops to learn the moves to your favourite songs - all abilities welcome! Ready to hit the stage? Become part of our official dance team Hi-Rise to perform at events and even compete against other universities.
- Vocal Team: Our vocal team aspires to showcase anyone’s interest in singing Korean songs whilst unleashing and perfecting their vocal potentials. We offer weekly rehearsals with studio equipment, top-class training to prepare us for vocal covers, showcase performances, and nationwide competitions!
- Random Dance Play Challenges: Show off your moves and dance with others in Random Dance Challenges to your favourite Kpop songs
- Collaborations: We are all about getting together and making new connections, so prepare yourself for collab events with other societies both inside of KCL, and other universities.
And if we still missed out on something you are dying to see, then get in touch with a member of the committee - we are here for you!
