Over the last decade, Korean culture has had an important influence on cuisine, entertainment and many other businesses in the city, thanks in part to “little Seoul”, a neighborhood rooted in and spread out over several Zona Rosa streets.

However, the possibility of approaching and understanding this Asian culture is not limited to the streets around Metro Insurgentes. In April 2013, through the Embassy of South Korea, the Korean Cultural Center opened its doors to offer the public an attractive variety of activities, both artistic (exhibitions, traditional music concerts, craft fairs) and academic (Korean language and history courses).

If you love Asian cinema, you’ll be delighted to know this cultural center screens many blockbusters and commercial films, as well as movies by directors who have gained a following in Mexico, such as Kim Ki-duk and Bong Joon-ho.
