To promote cultural exchange between China and South Korea,  Korean Culture Day was held at the Korean Cultural Centre in Beijing on Wednesday.

In South Korea, the last Wednesday of every month is Korean Culture Day.

As part of the activities, students from the Korea National University of Arts in South Korea, the Manhattan School of Music in New York and China's Central Conservatory of Music presented traditional Korean folk songs and classical Chinese music.

In addition to the concert, other activities such as classes on Korean food, screenings of Korean films and a Sino-Korea Art Exchange were also included in the event.

According to a press release sent to the Global Times, the event will be held in other cities across the Chinese mainland.

South Korean artists working in China are planning more activities such as K-Pop courses, Korean cuisine tastings and courses for traditional Korean instruments so that Chinese can have more opportunities to get to know and experience Korean culture.
