Jakarta: South Korean Ambassador to Indonesia Kim Chang Beom will promote his country’s culture, tourism and traditional food in the five Indonesian cities of Jakarta, Cirebon, Brebes, Solo, and Surabaya.
The event entitled Korean Friend to Java, known as “Teko Nang Jawa” in Javanese language ” will be held from September 2 to 7, Minister of the South Korean Embassy in Jakarta Jeon Joyoung told Indonesian news agency ANTARA.
“The ambassador will lead a delegation tour to each of the cities and will hold various events to introduce Korean culture,” Joyoung said.
Kim Chang Beom and entourage will travel over 1,000 km from Jakarta to Cirebon, Brebes, Solo and Surabaya to promote South Korean culture to the provinces in Java.
While most citizens in Jakarta had easy access to the culture of South Korea, those in other provinces did not.
“Citizens in Jakarta may have known Korean culture for a long time, but that is not the case with people from other provinces in Indonesia to enjoy our culture. Therefore, the ambassador intends to invite other citizens in the event,” Joyoung said.
Based on the official website of Korean culture (, “TeKo Nang Java” is free of charge and the community can attend the event without registration.
Activities in the event include songs, Indonesian and Korean traditional dances, eating competitions, fashion performances, taekwondo, traditional dress performances, games and guest star performances from Sinister, Coming Soon and Shining Diamond.
The event is presented by the Korea Foundation for International Cultural Exchange (KOFICE), the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, the Korean Cultural Center in Indonesia and Fortune Entertainment.
