Overview

Five modern-day Korean kids open their hearts and invite you to take an intimate look into their lives through their diverse interests, customs, and ambitions through the following areas: Korea Plaza: Visit historical and famous sites on an interactive multi-user touch table and hang out with Korean kids and “text” them questions about what life is like in Seoul. Classroom: Learn how to speak and write Hangul. Listen to folktales and play the janggu and buk, traditional drums. Apartment: Experience preparations, games and customs for Seollal (Lunar New Year.) Try on a hanbok and learn to tie the traditional bow, “taste” New Years’ foods such as tteokguk (rice cake soup) or play yut nori, a traditional Korean game. Animation Studio: Did you know “The Simpsons” and “Avatar” were created in Korean animation studios? Check out a stop-motion station and draw an animated story. Taekwondo Studio: Kick, punch and block as you match your moves to Korean children who are experts in this 2000 year old martial art. Korea K-Pop Stars Studio: Take the stage and watch yourself “perform” on screen with K-Pop stars. Restaurant: From Kimchi to Korean BBQ, “dine” in at this authentic Korean restaurant or take on the role of the restaurant owner and watch your business boom.
