- 2014 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Exhibition
- Article Written by : Kimchann CHON (Cambodia) Intern, Information and Data Unit of ASEAN-Korea Centre The ‘2014 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Exhibition’, an exhibition introducing the diverse cultures and elements of the everyday life in ASEAN, is being held from 9-18 January 2015 at the Gallery Moon of the Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) in Seoul, Republic of Korea. The pieces being displayed are winning artworks of the ‘2014 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition’ which was organized by the ASEAN-Korea Centre in May 2014. The Competition was participated by many young students and artists from the ASEAN Member States and Korea, and received over 500 entries. On 8th January, the Opening Ceremony of the Exhibition was held at Gallery Moon of DDP. The 11 winners (10 from ASEAN and 1 from Korea) of the ‘2014 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition’ were invited to attend and have the chance to present their winning artworks. Various personnel attended the Opening Ceremony, including the ASEAN diplomatic corps, prominent figures from culture and art fields, and students as well. ▲ Ms Samnagvathana Sor, the winning artist from Cambodia and H.E. Chung Hae-moon, Secretary General of the ASEAN-Korea Centre The winning artist from Cambodia, Ms Samnagvathana Sor, when asked about the reason for participating in the event, explained “I decided to participate because I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to show my artworks as well as my ability. Also, I could promote the culture of my country, Cambodia, within the theme of ‘Lifestyle of ASEAN’. For my artwork, even though my photos were taken at a market in the city, it reflects the common life of the whole Cambodian people from both the city and country side”. Ms. Sor also added “This is a valuable experience as I got to meet the winners, all from different countries to exchange ideas and techniques, and also learn about Korean art and culture as well. I believe the ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Competition is a very good opportunity for youths who want to present their artworks and learn more about multimedia.” Prior to the Opening Ceremony on the 8th, a discussion session for the 11 winnerswere held at the ASEAN-Korea Centre to deepen mutual understanding about one another’s culture. Some ASEAN students residing in Korea joined the 11 winners to talk about the cultural differences among Korea and ASEAN countries. For instance, in Korea, drinking alcohol together can be considered as a way to get to know to each other and show respect, especially to elders, while it is considered to be impolite in some ASEAN countries, such as Cambodia, and completely forbidden in Brunei Darussalam. “Throughout the discussion session, I have learned and understood a lot about Korean and ASEAN culture, tradition, and lifestyle such as the way of greeting, living and thinking.” said Ms. Hoang Thi Huong Quynh, a Vietnamese student from Daejeon University. What is more, the ‘2014 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Exhibition’ is not only a place to show and see the different aspects of the artworks and increase mutual understanding between one another through multimedia in each country. It is also a platform to make friends and network among Korean and ASEAN youth leaders for future solidity and prosperous relations with each other. Furthermore, this is a message to all youth to keep trying hard to reach their goals and dreams, and learn to live together in the beauty of diversity with dignity and harmony. ‘2014 ASEAN-Korea Multimedia Exhibition’ Gallery Moon, Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) 9 – 18 January 2015 | 10:00 – 19:00 (open till 21:00 on Wed & Fri) Hanam Art Center, Hanam 17 January – 15 February 2015 | 9:00 – 18:00 (closed on Mondays) Gyeongju Arts Center, Gyeongju 26 February – 29 March 2015 | 9:00 – 18:00 (closed on Mondays) Admission: Free of charge

- 2014 Youth Network Program
- The ASEAN-Korea Centre hosted the ‘2014 ASEAN-Korea Youth Network’ from July 24 to 26, as part of their efforts to further enhance cooperation between ASEAN and Korea. The participants were composed of 70 students from ASEAN and Korean universities residing in Korea. The program was part of the project『ASEAN-Korea Youth Network』that the centre held; it provided the participants with chances to build close relationships with one other. On the first day, participants gathered at the Olympic Partktel Seoul where they engaged in activities for three days. We exchanged greetings with each other and comfortably talked about ourselves, even though we had met for the first time. First, we listened to the Center’s Secretary General Hae Moon Chung and took a group picture. Then we got into ice-breaking activities such as ‘human bingo’, ‘human knot’ and ‘building the highest Tower’ game with spaghetti noodles and marshmallows. We came to strengthen our personal ties and teamwork in the process of solving problems together. ‘Human Bingo’ is a game that one has to put a name of a friend who fits the characteristic written in the box. This was an opportunity to talk with friends from other teams even though it was very short. It was a shame that we had such a limited time to talk with friends from other teams. In the case of team 1 that I belonged to, we built a solid tower in a pentagon shape. We had gotten the idea from a friend who majors in architecture. So we came in second place in ‘building the highest tower’ game. And as a group we drew posters on the theme of water. As the theme ‘water’ was so vast, teammates were confused when they first heard about the theme they were to portray. But all teammates agreed that a theme to ‘save water’ would be the most appropriate. All the team members endeavored to convey that message effectively. After designing the poster, teammates passionately drew, cut and pasted newspaper and magazines on the poster. All eight teams tried hard to convey the message of ‘save water’ effectively. Among them, team 4 got first place as they were very persuasive with subtle expressions. After drawing the posters, we had a nice dinner at a buffet at Parktel, a hotel where we stayed for three days. We were happy to have delicious meals while joyfully talking to friends! We had a UCC video-making activity on the subject of water. First we discussed what kind of video each team would make. There were music videos, future news, public education campaigns and commercial advertisements of the future product, all of which required creativity. Each team had an in-depth discussion on how they would persuade the importance of saving water in an effective way in the same manner as when they drew the posters. Students belonging to film making teams carried out their project in a very lively and cheerful manner. It was somehow difficult to come up with ideas on each scene, to iron out different opinions and toward preparing for shooting equipment and editing. But we enjoyed and laughed a lot in the process of shooting funny scenes. It was such a happy and new experience for ASEAN and Korean students to mingle and do fun things together. Almost all participants were on time to take a lecture on the importance of management of water resources although they stayed until late night for making films. They learned about the value of water resources through statistical figures. After a 10 minute break, another professor gave us a lecture on water management and communicated with students in fluent English. As for the third lecture, we learned about the vulnerability of water management due to climate change. At the end of all three lectures, many students were eager to get an opportunity to ask questions. Students wrote a simple essay, which was an opportunity that allowed them to remind students on the necessity of saving water. For the rest of the time until dinner, all teams were working on their UCCs and after dinner they were super busy editing to meet the deadline, which was 11 pm. Although editing required a lot of effort, we enjoyed the process as it was rewarding as well as entertaining to watch ourselves in the films. After finishing the UCC production, each team had time for entertainment. My team gathered at one of the rooms for chicken and beer and had a pleasant talk. It was a precious time that we could get even closer to each other. The next day, we left for a field trip to the Korea water resources in Chung-ju, in North Chungcheong Province, early in the morning. Chung-ju Dam is the second largest multipurpose dam in Korea and it provides 70% of water supply for Seoulites. We got a briefing on this and solved a group quiz at the Water Cultural Centre. We had a tasty Korean meal and toured Lake Chung-ju on a cruise ship. We could soothe our sadness over our impending departure a little bit, by taking many photos together while enjoying the cool breeze. For the last schedule of this workshop, we had a closing ceremony at Olympia Hall at the Olympic Parktel. There was an introduction of the ambassadors of each ASEAN member countries and also a time to appreciate the UCCs. Team 8 won first place! They had made a music video that encouraged us to save water with the lyrics of ‘Let It Go’, OST of ‘Frozen’ that they creatively changed and related it to the subject of saving water. All the schedule of the workshop finished with a dinner and a group photo. We were all very exhausted as we had to reduce significant sleeping time to follow the tight schedule. Nevertheless, we were extremely sad to say goodbye that we couldn’t leave right after and stayed quite awhile longer to take pictures together amid hopes to meet again. As for the feedback of this Network which was asked in the form of a survey questionnaire during the ending ceremony, over half of the participants said that 2 days and 3 nights was too short and some of them even said that 4 days and 5 nights would have been much better. And there were many posts and comments by participants on SNS such as Facebook and Kakao Talk. This shows that friendship and memories they shared during the workshop was very pleasant and deep. It was very evident that the objectives of this workshop, which was to give ASEAN-Korea students an opportunity to communicate and build mutual understanding, was indeed very successfully achieved.
