Need a little excitement again?
Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival can usually be relied upon to satisfy film fans with comedies, dramas and thrillers from South Korea. This year, Fantasia is showing 12 Korean features. Two of them, A Hard Day and Socialphobia, will be shown twice, the rest get one screening only. The […]
2nd game for the Taeguk Ladies! D-day series is back with South Korea vs Costa Rica!
Korea Republic vs Brazil. Excited?
So who here is excited about the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada? I know I am. I already got my ticket for the game and it is going to be one of the highlights of 2015. Hopefully we get to see all of you lovely fans supporting […]
The Korean restaurant I visit most often is called Chingu. Come to think of it, it’s the resto I visit most often, period. (Or point final, as one says in French.) I go there because the location is convenient for me and for the friend who introduced […]
Korean influences can be found are all over the place, sometimes where you might not expect them. Station W is a café in the Verdun district of Montreal. It’s a welcoming place, with very friendly employees. The room is bright, with lots of places to sit, and […]
On Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 I attended my first Korean language class. Our friendly and encouraging teacher is Chang In Young. There were just six of us last week, though our group could expand somewhat; new students are still welcome to join the class. (See below for more […]
Le 7 juin 2014 était l’occasion pour les Coréens de Montréal de se rassembler et pour les résidents de la grande région de Montréal d’en découvrir plus sur la fascinante Corée lors du Festival Couleurs de la Corée 2014 organisé par le Montreal Korean Langage and Culture Centre.

Les montréalaises ont de quoi se réjouir: plus besoin d’aller jusqu’à Séoul pour se procurer les BB creams dernier cri et une panoplie de soins qui n’ont rien à envier à l’empire de l’Oréal. Avec deux boutiques au centre-ville et un site web qui effectue la livraison des […]
C’est aujourd’hui que Montréal célèbre l’arrivée d’un nouveau venu dans le monde de nos nombreux festivals: celui du film coréen! La semaine du 5 au 10 juillet 2013 nous réserve des surprises pour les connaisseurs mais aussi des classiques tels Mother et The Host pour ceux qui sont […]
This place had been a bit of an enigma to me until recently. Before last week, I had only heard of the “Korean butcher” through friends. At the time, my information was limited and I had heard that he was not actually Korean, but specialized in Korean cuts […]
The Montreal Korean Language and Culture Centre: Bringing Korean culture to the public, one person at a time.
