▲ Suk-Chan Yu, second from left, is addressing the 2019 Dallas Korean Festival Committee during the kick-off meeting.

 

2019 Dallas Korean Festival Committee held its kick-off meeting Tuesday, July 30th at the Korean Culture Center of Dallas (KCCD) and announced some of the festival details.

 

This year’s Korean Festival promises to be ‘bigger and better than last year’, according to the committee.

 

The event will be co-hosted by the City of Carrollton, Korean Society of Dallas (KSD), the Korean National Unification Advisory Council (NUAC), and the Consular Office of the Republic of Korean in Dallas.

 

The festival will be run by the Korean American Development Foundation (KADF) and KCCD, managing everything from booking of the performers and vendors to setting up the site.

 

KADF is the organization that essentially made this year’s Korean Festival possible. KSD had previously announced that it would not hold the Korean Festival this year due to financial difficulties. After the announcement, however, KADF approached KSD and worked out a resolution to co-host the festival. KADF is led by Suk-Chan Yu, former KSD president and current president of NUAC Dallas.

 

The Festival Committee is comprised of virtually all Korean-American organizations in Dallas, as it has been for the past 3 years.

 

The Festival Committee, during the kick-off meeting, expressed its confidence that this year’s event will be packed with ‘nice surprises.’

▨ Taste of Korea
There will be a total of 34 Korean food booths at the Festival. Kimchi making performance and giant Bibimbap mixing event will also be part of Taste of Korea portion.

 

▨ Korean Culture
Samulnori (the Korean tradition percussion quartet), Gukak (the Korean traditional music), Korean traditional wedding ceremony with actual married couple as the bride and groom, Korean traditional group circle dance (Gang Gang Sulae), Korean royal procession, Korean royal fashion show, Gil Sam Nori (the giant weaving performance), Taekwondo demonstration, and rice planting performance will be some of the most memorable performances this year.
The rice planting performance is new this year. About 100 people will participate in the performance and demonstrate how Korean plant rice plants.

 

▨ K-POP Night
Up-and-coming K-POP idol groups SNUPER and NeonPuch will be the main attraction at the K-POP Night. Snuper is a Korean boy group formed by Widmay Entertainment in 2015, and is the first Korean pop group from the label. They debuted on November 16, 2015, which coincides with the Festival date.
NeonPunch is the first girl group from A100 Entertainment. The group debuted on June 27, 2018 with ‘MOONLIGHT.’ The group also debuted in China with the Chinese version of ‘MOONLIGHT.’
A popular club DJ ‘DJ Flash Finger’ will wrap up the K-POP Night.

 

▨ Audition for local performers
The Festival Committee will hold an open audition on Friday, September 20th at 6:00PM. Instead of booking well-known local performers, the Festival Committee is trying something new this year by offering everyone a chance to perform on the main stage. There is no age or gender limit, and talents can be anything from singing, dancing, instrument, magic, and etc.

 

▨ Sponsorship
The Festival Committee is providing a wider range of sponsorship opportunities than previous festivals so that businesses and organizations of all sizes can participate.
Sponsorship ranges from $50,000 Main Title Sponsor to $300 Together Sponsorship. Food booth will be $1,500.

 

▨ Contact Information
2019 Dallas Korean Festival Committee will be announcing more details as their preparation effort takes shape. In the meantime, all inquiries about the festival can be directed to Korean Society of Dallas at 972-241-4524 dallaskorea@gmail.com
