It's that time of the year again! It's time to bring out your enthusiasm of the Korean and Filipino culture in one special event! And this year it's getting more bigger than ever! It's the 21st Filipino - Korean Cultural Festival!


The Filipino - Korean Cultural Festival is an annual event organized by the United Korean Community Association in the Philippines (UKCA) in partnership with other local groups in the Philippines such as Arirang Town Philippines. This year, it is slated to happen on October 27, 2012 at the Aliw Theater in CCP Complex, Pasay City with special guest artist and singer - Lee Jung.

The event is annually flocked by Koreans and Filipino Korean culture enthusiasts who are ready to witness amazing performances on stage. The highlight of the Filipino - Korean Cultural festival is the Cultural exchange competitions, this year there are 2 competitions where Pinoys and Koreans participated in.

The Filipino - Korean Speech exchange competition is the first half of the two competitions, Filipinos must do a Korean speech while Koreans needs to do a Tagalog speech. The other competition is the Talent exchange competition where Filipinos need to perform Korean song or dance performances and Koreans need to perform Filipino song or dance performances. The Filipino - Korean Cultural Festival serves as the venue for the competitions final performance.

And now it's time for a quick giveaway!

  10. I want to win because I want to experience again the feeling while watching the Fil-Kor last year. It has been a very memorable day for me because I enjoyed all the performances as well as I was able to bond with my other kpop friends. I really need this barkada pack so that I can also invite my friends and have someone to enjoy the event with. :))

  11. Korea has created a great impact in my life. During my younger years, I've bee a total fan of their drama series first, then I got interested (and hooked, eventually) to their music not just from the idol groups but their REAL music as well. I immediately fell in love with Korea -- its people, the placeand especially the culture. Thus, this Fil-Kor event will be the perfect voccasion for me to share the same feelings I had with my friends or relatives. I REALLY WANNA WIN! Thank you so much!

  12. My heart belongs to Korea. My Kpop fandom keeps me sane, I consider it as my only consolation in this stressful world. I've always been a fan of anything Korean since Koreanovelas first hit the Philippines. This would be my first Fil-Kor Cultural Festival, if ever I do win the tickets. It would be amazing if I do win the tickets and I know it would be an awesome and unforgettable experience. I really regret not being able to take part of the previous ones but I wouldn't want to miss one again. Pick me! Please? :)

  15. I like to win because I am so eager to let my sister attend the event. She is a new fan and a former hater, so I want her to experience the craziness and happiness I felt when I attend last year's Fil-Kor (which is my first time). It will be such a beautiful 18th birthday gift for her.

  17. I am so far in Manila (hundred miles away from there) and I don't have any source of money since I am a student, not having allowance. I want to have a ticket because I want to see Bigbang as this is the first time they'll visit here in the Philippines. I don't think they'll come back again so as of now, I want to take this opportunity.

    I also want to participate in the fan chants that the VIPs (Bigbang fans) will make in their concert. Reading their plans makes me happy and I will certainly be happier if I'll be a part of it.

  21. I would like to win the barkada package. As much as we would to go to korea, joining in this event will gives us a strong presence of korea and its culture. We listen to kpop everyday along with watching korean tv shows/dramas/news. Watching Fil-Kor will also add us as one of the Filipino's there who wants to enjoy Korean Culture. While cheering our friends who joined in the competition.

  22. I want to win the Barkada tickets for the Fil-Kor Festival because aside from being a K-POP and K-DRAMA LOVER I am a KOREAN CULTURE ENTHUSIAST first.  And with this event my sister and some of my friends (if we win those tickets) will get to enjoy and experience KOREAN CULTURE at its FINEST...제발! 사랑해요<3<3<3 God Bless/! 파이팅!

  23. Since 2009, I've been attending the FIL-KOR  Cultural Festival that's why I like to win the passes. I will do my best to win in every contest about Fil-Kor tickets giveaway because I dont want to pass this year's event. If I'm the lucky winner.

  24. We knew about the event a month before actually! :) H3AT's Phoi invited us, that's how we got to know the event.After the event in SM Southmall. So yeah.. we're kinda far form Pasay BUT! our love for Korea would prove how much we are willing to sacrifice! :D My friends and I are BIIIIIG fans of korean culture. We really do! besides KPOP, we try to engage ourselves with it's culture, food and traditions, as well. Waiting for a month already, we endured exammmss :((( and more exams. So we really were rooting for this, but as for the raffle, our hope of experiencing this almost once in a lifetime event, lessened. We tried entering but no luck really passed on our path :( To watch this event would really be a blessing to each of us. Because we know, as for now, it is kinda impossible. We've been praying for tickets, and who knows... Maybe we'll have an answer :) We root and cheer one everyone who would be joining. Because we, for know, can't reach their level of awesomeness.. Witnessing them live... That would make us more than happy.. Words aren't even enough to explain how happy we would be if we could get these tickets :) And as Filipinos, we got used of thinking everything gets better once your with your friends. :) And yeah... Being able to breathe in the same room, place with awesome people in there will be give us bragging rights! :D
     @ArirangTownPh:twitter  and @alexbam2006:disqus , you know you guys rock right? By just and conducting these kind of events, you help fangirls and fanboys alike reach Korea in a more convenient way :) Not using planes to fly all the way there ;) I WANNA COME THERE BECAUSE NO WORDS OF AWESOMENESS WOULD EXPLAIN HOW AWESOME THAT PLACE WOULD BE! :)Name: Eli Ansay @U_elitty:disqus  ^^Email: eliansay@gmail.com

  29. My fascination with Korean Culture started when I became a part-time tutor when I was in college. I even taught myself how to read and write Hangul just so I can relate well with my students and to understand them better. I would love to witness the coordination and harmony of the two nations, South Korea and Philippines! I'm sure it'll be a fun and entertaining festival!

  51. Attending this FIL-KOR Festival is really FUN! and a GREAT EXPERIENCE and OPPORTUNITY for me, especially if I will be with my friends. I and my Filipino friends definitely like K-POP and everything in S.Korea as well. So it is easy for us to relate to the event. We don't just wanted to like it, but we would also wanted to learn something or A LOT from it. And not just Korean Music but also Korean Language, Culture, Cuisines, and many more that is related to Korean Culture. With this event, we would be able to ENJOY Korean stuffs MORE! And the FRIENDSHIP between the two country and nationality is also one thing that we would like to WITNESS.  I am a Tourism Management student (and also one of my friend), and I really believe that it would help me/us a lot in my/our studies also. And my CONNECTION with my friends would be more closer. Lastly, WE DONT JUST WANTED TO ENJOY, BUT ALSO TO LEARN ;) fighting~ 

    *thanks for the opportunity

Since then, I now appreciate Korean culture in hand with ours, get addicted to the ever growing KPOP industry and sharing it to my friends. I hope I can enjoy this 2012 Filipino - Korean Cultural Festival together with my friends by winning tickets.
