The 2013 Asia After Dark season kicks off with a night aboard the Korean pop-culture soul train. Stops include K-Bling art activities inspired by Korean ceramics, a dress-up photo booth, spotlight tours, an exploration station of our new “Collecting Korea” iPad app, and K-wave music and visuals. Here from Korea for one night only, Action Drawing HERO performs a mash-up of drawing, painting, and visual effects, with a witty blend of mime, dance, and comedy. Soju cocktails, Korean beer, and traditional snacks are available for purchase.
