UCLA Korean Culture Night: April 13

April 12th, 2017

Enjoy a mix of traditional and modern Korean culture at UCLA this week. Korean Culture Night is continues the great tradition of diversity on the UCLA campus. It will take place at Royce Hall on Thursday April 13th. This year’s production,  A Passing of Time, invites the audience into the lives of seven high school students and their families, who experience a devastating incident. Three years ago, the sinking of the Sewol Ferry united all of Korea in a grim and solemn time of waiting and hoping, but ultimately claimed over 300 lives. As we sympathize with the families who lost their loved ones, we are not able to fully picture the incident in its scale and relatable aspects. The majority of the 304 were high school students who had hopes, ambitions, and dreams. Through this year’s Korean Culture Night, they delve deeper into the lives that were affected and bring to the stage a tragedy that shocked and angered our country.
