Essentials with JD # 299 **CULTURE DAY ACTIVITIES TODAY 문화가 있는 날 **

Today is Culture Day in Korea – this happens every last Wednesday of the month with the aim of giving citizens more opportunities to engage in local cultural programs around them.

 

“ The program, which began in January 2014, aims at helping South Koreans more easily enjoy cultural events by offering various benefits including discounts for entrance fees at museums, sports games, movies, theaters and exhibitions on the last Wednesday of the month, which is dubbed Culture Day. “ – Korea Times
