The 16th annual Korean Festival, presented by the Hawaii Korean Chamber of Commerce, will take place Friday and Saturday at the Honolulu Hale Civic Grounds. The Korean Festival started in 2002 to mark the centennial of Koreans’ immigration to Hawaii.
On Friday, starting at 5 p.m., K-pop group Fantastie will perform onstage along with South Carnival and Young Han.
On Saturday, K-pop singer Cho Eun, who was featured on the K-drama soundtrack for “Something Happened in Bali,” will perform, along with Rooftop Prince, Phoenix, Queen of Housewives, Fantastie, South Carnival and Young Han. Saturday festivities run from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The Korean Festival will also feature all the favorite events of previous years: the kim chee-eating contest, Korean song contest, traditional games, the cultural exhibition, art corner and more. Don’t miss the many Korean food tents and soju sampling.
