The King Sejong Institute Foundation (President: Kang Hyounhwa) and the Korea Arts and Culture Education Service (President: Lee GyuSeog) will begin collaborating to spread Korean culture and improve the quality of Korean cultural education.

The King Sejong Institute Foundation (KSIF) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Disseminating and Promoting Korean Culture Overseas with the Korea Arts and Cultural Education Service (KACES) in the conference room of the KSIF building in Seocho-dong, Seoul at 2 p.m. on February 23.

The two organizations plan to share human and material resources to provide quality education in Korean culture across the world, in addition to providing training and shared content to raise the value of culture and arts education.

In addition to offering Korean language programs, KSIF has been promoting Korean culture worldwide by dispatching experts in various aspects of Korean culture, including kimchi and hanbok clothing, to 213 KSI locations in 76 countries to teach at the Sejong Culture Academy. KACES, on the other hand, operates the ArtE Academy to foster educators in the field of culture and the arts.

KSIF and KACES will be making concerted efforts to allow people studying Korean to also enjoy excellent Korean culture classes by nurturing experts in Korean culture and art and sending them overseas.

Kang Hyounhwa, the President of KSIF, said, “There is a growing demand for and interest in Korean culture among people studying Korean around the world due to the influence of hallyu, including K-pop. […] Based on the recent MOU, we will dedicate ourselves to promoting Korean culture worldwide by harnessing the knowledge of experts who can teach Korean culture and strengthening our core competencies.”
