NOTE: IT’S A LITTLE DIFFERENT, BUT AN EXCITING BOOK PROJECT WILL BE ANNOUNCED
Project Obangsaek (which has since gone out of business and lost its website!!), Nanoomi.net, and Platoon Kunsthalle are proud to bring you the Project Obangsaek Official Launch Party!
Obangsaek Official Launch Event 7:00pm
Award-winning filmmaker Benson Lee (Planet B-Boy: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/independent/planetbboy/) brings us Project Obangsaek, a documentary and website on modern Korea for a global audience. At the event, we will provide a preview on some of our original documentary content produced by Obangsaek and some sample posts from our website, made by members of our diverse community.
Nanoomi comes from the Korean word “나눔” – ”to share.” Come meet the people behind some of Korea’s most-read blogs that share the country with the world, including The Marmot’s Hole, Eat Your Kimchi and ZenKimchi! For updates on their work, visit their website at www.nanoomi.net, follow them on Twitter @nanoomi, or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Sogetting Seoul 8:00pm
Korean blind dating, or “sogetting,” is usually set up by your mom or friends. But we believe our members can help match you better than your mom can! Sign up for our speed sogetting session and immerse yourself in Korea’s dating scene for a chance to qualify in your own reality web series which will be seen by a global audience. To participate, you must first create a profile at (LINK DECEASED) then head over to
www.obangsaek.com/contest (LINK DECEASED) to register. One lucky guy and girl will be selected to have their own online web reality series on finding love in Seoul, directed by Benson Lee!
Seoul Train Party 9:00pm
Following the Speed Sogetting session, we’re taking it back…wayyy back with some classic soul, old school funk, and disco. Help us create the longest Soul Train lineup ever seen in Seoul!
