MANILA – As it celebrates its 10th year in the Philippines, the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) announced on Tuesday the launching of a logo-making contest, and other activities lined up such as dance and martial arts lessons.

Until April 16, interested individuals may submit their entries to the logo-making contest that should depict the 10 years of KCC. The grand winner will take PHP40,000, while two runners-up will receive KCC goodies.

Original creations of Filipinos residing in the Philippines must be sent via Google form. A 200-word backgrounder about the logo should be provided.

The winning logo, which will be announced on April 30, will be used on all promotional and event materials related to the anniversary, and the anniversary video.

Meanwhile, Hallyu fans will get the chance to learn Kpop dance moves without the need to enroll in dance classes. Dasuri Choi will lead an online dance tutorial where viewers will move to Twice's "I Can't Stop Me", singer/actress IU's latest single, "Celebrity", as well as EXO's "Obsession".

An exclusive dance clinic will also be staged for randomly selected participants, while others may participate in the K-Dance quiz to win prizes.

Korean martial arts will also be introduced to Filipinos via KCC's social media accounts this month. Aside from appreciating the Korean culture, viewers will learn from basic tutorials, and get them started in Taekwondo, Ssireum (Korean wrestling), and Taekkyon (traditional Korean martial art).

Earlier, KCC announced it will conduct an online K-beauty workshop this year. Tips on how to achieve a "chok chok" (hydrated with luminous complexion) skin will be shared.

Recently through the "K-Healing" campaign, the Center has partnered with Smart Communications in giving a treat to front-liners amid the pandemic. A teacher, a guard, fire brigade volunteers, and nurses were among those who received "K-Healing" packages.

KCC Director Im Young-A earlier said that through the front-liners' stories, she learned that difficulties can be overcome together with love and a sense of solidarity with family, neighbors, and community. (PNA)
