Along with various culinary events, there will be Korean folk games put on and festival goers will have the chance to try on the traditional Hanbok clothing.

The highlight of the festival will be the Vietnam-Korean art programme, which will honour the best K-Pop and Vietnamese singers, dancers, and Korean national martial arts team.
