Talk Talk Korea 2019 Winners
Talk Talk Korea is a global contest featuring Korea-related original content across a range of creative formats and topics. Buoyed by the global fandom of Hallyu, the umbrella term for all of Korean pop culture, the 2019 competition was held under the theme “Korea Lovers” and drew a combined 32,519 entries from 167 countries—the most since the contest debuted in 2014. Out of tens of thousands of entries, 184 were selected as prize-winning works, all of which will be on display or accessible in digital formats through this exhibition. Entries in this year’s competition were divided into seven categories: Talk about Korea, Hansik & I (related to food), Korean Song Recommendations, Illustrations of Peace, Speaking Korean, Webtoons, and Experiencing Korea.
Following the theme of passion for Korean culture abroad, the exhibition opening will also include a special K-Lecture program on the rise of Korean culture in America, with brief guest speaker talks, audience discussion, and Q&A. Emanuel Pastreich, Director of The Asia Institute and former professor at Kyung Hee University, will discuss what Korean culture has come to mean for Americans in his talk, “Korean Culture in America: Past, Present and Future.” The discussion will also touch on current trends in the Korean pop culture phenomenon.
