Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) opened India’s first-ever multi-purpose cultural and public information center ‘Korea Corner’ during Hangeul Day celebration. The Embassy of the Republic of Korea together with JNU organised the opening ceremony of the Korea Corner in JNU’s School of Language, Literature and Cultural Studies.

The Korea Corner is aimed at enhancing local public awareness about Korea by providing easier access to a variety of materials on Korea at universities or libraries abroad.

The Korea Corner is located at #129 at the School of Language, Literature and Cultural Studies, JNU.  The Korea Corner will enable JNU students, faculty members and anyone interested in knowing and learning about Korea to have cultural and educational experiences by providing research materials, academic books, audio-video contents, etc., while demonstrating Korea’s cultural artifacts,  photos, traditional costumes and musical instruments.             — TNS
