Starting from 2009, the Korean Culture and Information Service began setting up Korean Cultural Centers around the world.


The centers are run by the Korean Culture and Information Service, a subdivision of South Korea's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.[1]


As part of efforts to introduce and spread interest in diverse aspects of Korean culture, the centers have organized many programs under the categories of arts, music, literature, film and cuisine.[2]
