Annual Korean Festival blends many cultures on campus

The Annual Korean Festival, held on Monday, October 22 on the Quad, brings food, games, dance, and exhibitions of Korean culture to the diverse Bloomfield College community. The event is sponsored by the division of International Training and Professional Studies (ITPS) and produced by members of the global internship and MAST (Math and Science Teachers) programs.

The students from the two programs do all the food preparation in traditional Korean style. In front of each serving area is a poster describing the dish and how it is made. The food, as in the past, was delectible. Using fresh ingredients, this very healthy spread featured kimchee, bulgogi, jeyukbokkeum, and kimbap. Many tried, and succeeded, in using chopsticks, although one student was heard to say – “I don’t want to eat slowly – this food is too good!”

Guests are invited to play a variety of Korean games such as Yutnori – a game played with sticks; Jegichagi – a game similar to hackysack, but played with a shuttle cock; and Kongki Noylee – a game very much like jacks.

 After a demonstration of Tae Kwon Do, during which Dr. Peter Jeong, vice president of ITPS successfully broke a board with his fist, student took to the stage for dance performances, incluing the newly popular gangnam style.

This event is highly anticipated each year and helps to integrate the Korean students, who are only on campus for a few months, with the rest of the college community. It is a delicious way to learn about another culture, one that is becoming a standard at Bloomfield College.
