On 29th of September 2016, IE Korea Club organized a Korean dinner party at a decent Korean restaurant near Sol & Opera Metro stations. The club invited all IE members who love or never had Korean food before, and more than 60 IE students attended the party.
The menu proposed to the guests was authentic Korean cuisine, through diverse dishes prepared following the traditional recipes. The event started with Kimchijeon (Kimchi pancake), Japchae (stir-fried starch noodles with beef and vegetables) and more than 10 kinds of Banchans(side dishes) as starters.
The main course consisted of the most loved Korean dish around the world, Bulgogi (BBQ Beef) and Jeyuk Bokkeum (spicy pork BBQ) and Bibimbap (rice topped with prepared vegetables, beef and seasoned red chili pepper paste, Gochujang).
During the dinner, clubs members walked around the hall and explained about food, wearing Hanbok, traditional Korean dress. The club also played K-Pop music video on the screen though the event to give guests a sense of current Korean culture.
At the end of dinner party, all guests were invited to join lucky draw and quiz about interesting facts of Korean culture. Most of them won Korean cosmetics and liquors as a gift. They appreciated the dishes and the enjoyable atmosphere that contributed to create an opportunity for networking and understanding Korean culture more.
