The King Sejong Center in Washington, D.C., has kicked off its annual Hallyu Camp once again this week, giving young American children the opportunity to immerse themselves in workshops and activities all revolving around traditional and pop culture.

The camp is designed to give fans of Korean pop culture a more in-depth understanding of the country and its people.

During the five-day program, participants get to experience what it means to be Korean through a variety of interactive workshops, lessons and discussions related to Korean values and culture, K-pop music, K-dramas and K-films.

The camp includes sessions on learning the basics of Hangeul and the Korean language; K-pop music and dance workshops; learning Korean expressions, etiquette and customs; preparing a traditional meal with a Korean chef; and trying on hanbok and learning about traditional folk music.

Each day Hallyu Camp is built around a cultural concept essential to understanding Korea. Throughout the week, participants are able to share their interest in Korean pop culture while learning about the traditional arts and values that shape Korean culture and society today. The Hallyu Camp 2013 began on Monday at the Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C., and continues through Friday, Aug. 9.
