The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) Volunteers organised Korean Culture Festival 2013 with a support from KOICA at Kathmandu.
Keeping in mind the growing popularity of Korean culture, life style and language among Nepalese people, this cultural festival has been being organized since 2011.
