Learning Korean Culture Through Films
Film is great tool to express people's dreams, imagination, feelings and messages to their audience. In addition, films can be great tool to learn about the culture.
By watching Korean films, having lectures about cultures embedded in the films, and having a discussion/sharing thoughts at this class taught by Dr. Gong in this pandemic period, you will get to know more about Korean culture phenomena, social issues and daily life of Koreans.
Movies we will watch:
'The host' 'Miracle cell #7' and 'Scandal makers'.
After you sign up for the class, you will receive links to watch 2 of the movies for free of charge. Unfortunately, free link to watch the 3rd movie is not available. Please expect to pay about $3.99 to watch the 3rd movie.
How the class runs:
1) Watch the film individually before the class date.
2) During the class, Dr. Gong will give a short lecture covering cultural components embedded in the film.
3) Students will have discussion and Q/A time.
Class will be on-line through zoom.
