The Korean Cultural Center in Washington said Monday that it is holding an exhibition on South Korean animation and literature from March 24 to Dec. 29.
The Culture Ministry-run institution said the exhibition aims to offer opportunities for visitors to take an in-depth look into South Korean animation content based on well-known literary works, as well as increase their understanding in Korean culture.
Titled “K-Animation With Literature,” the exhibition is co-hosted with animation production firm Meditation With a Pencil.
The exhibition will screen five animation films: “The Shower,” based on the novel by Hwang Soon-won; “When Buckwheat Flowers Bloom,” based on the novel by Lee Hyo-seok; “A Lucky Day,” based on the novel by Hyun Jin-geon; “Spring, Spring,” based on the novel by Kim Yoo-jeong; and “The Shaman Sorceress,” based on the novel by Kim Dong-ri.
Visitors can watch the animated films and learn about the production process as well as the people who created the animations.
Celebrating the opening of the exhibition on March 24, a screening of “The Shaman Sorceress” will be followed by a talk with animation film director Ahn Jae-hoon.
Entry for “K-Animation with Literature” is held for free.
