Park Taeyoung, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Nepal, said that the Korean wave has captured the imagination of young people in Nepal, especially through K-pop, K-dramas, K-beauty and Korean fashion.

He said that this trend will continue to strengthen the deeper cultural exchange between the two countries, Korea and Nepal.

The Ambassador thanked the participants and the audience for making this event a memorable one.

K-pop World Festival is an annual event that was first held in 2011 in Changwon City, South Korea. The 2024 K-pop World Festival will be held in Changwon in October.

The K-pop World Festival aims to promote the understanding of Korea through Hallyu content with the active participation of foreigners. For this purpose, each Korean embassy around the world is organizing the regional preliminary round of the K-pop World Festival.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea has hosted the K-pop World Festival in Kathmandu in 2016, 2018, and every year from 2019 to 2023, except 2020, which was canceled due to Covid-19. In 2016, Mongolian Namja had represented Nepal in the final round of the K-pop World Festival in Korea.
