I hope all of our readers have a safe, and enjoyable Chuseok holiday. This year it will take place from today, the 12th, until Saturday, the 14th. Please keep in mind that some of your favorite hangouts may be closed, or observing special hours. Please check the Gwangju page on Facebook for updates. Also remember that traffic will be heavier than usual, so if you’re out and about, you might want to use public transportation.

Looking to check out something special today? If so, then I would recommend the Gwangju Design Biennale. The Design Biennale is held during odd years, and celebrates many different aspects of design. You’ll be able to see displays from some of the world’s top designers. During the run of the biennale you’ll also be able to hear from academic professionals in the field of design. For complete information, incuding ticket prices and times, please go to their official website. The 2019 Gwangju Design Biennale will run until October 31st.

I don’t need to tell you that Loft 28 is a great place to party on Saturday night, but I’m going to remind you anyways! Great drinks, savory food, and awesome music are just three reasons why you need to head out to Loft 28. There’s always a lot going on, so to get all the info that you need, please go to their Facebook page.

A great way to end the Chuseok holiday is by catching a movie at Gwangju’s oldest theater, the Gwangju Cinema. Gwangju Cinema is the place to catch the latest buzz worthy indie, foreign films, and classic films from all over the world. If you’re a fan of movies, then you need to visit this historic cinema.
