South Korean Embassy Presentation

Remember when we said that the Korean embassy is planning great things for their colaboration with our nice little library?

Last week they had a presentation about South Korean culture in the library. They showed a video on South Korean culture and nature and answered questions from the audience. We were all impressed by the presenter's admission that Koreans have only 3 days off per year, and that people often work as many as 14 hours per day! It was a bit shocking, really. South Korea and Bulgaria might be similar in total land area and in the fact that they share a long history, like the presenter mentioned in his presentation, but love for holidays and taking things easy is certainly not some of the things they have in common.

Apart from pamphlets, they gave out to us these cute little Korean fans that will definitely prove to be very useful on the hot Sofian summer days, which are drawing closer and closer...

We are expecting the remake and transformation of the Portuguse reading room into the Korean reading room to take place during August and September. Stay posted.
