UCSI Holds Successful 2nd Korean Night Dinner

The main objective of the event is to promote Korean cuisine, culture and music among the locals. The event concluded with entertaining performances including a K-pop dance, Korean traditional dance, singing performance, and a mini Korean Drama. 

As part of the event awareness and publicity, a Korean Showcase was held on the 22nd -23rd November 2014 at Boulevard Shopping Mall Kuching featuring activities such as traditional dance, henna art, a language booth, food and mocktail tasting, lucky draws, games, and the event highlight, the first ever UCSI Korean flash mob. 

“As a K-pop fan, I am glad that UCSI had organized the Korean Showcase and Korean Night. We learnt a lot from the planning, organising, coordinating, and controlling process. This experience has enhanced our skills to be future leaders,” said Chong Jia Xin, a diploma student in Hotel Management. 

The event also serves as a platform for the students to apply their classroom knowledge to real life situations through the organising of this event, which is in tandem with UCSI’s praxis® approach.
