Arirang TV has launched a unique show on K-culture.
It's a program that invites talented foreigners who are experts in various Korean cultural outlets to compete against one another. Unlike other TV shows that introduced foreigners who are learning Korean culture as a hobby, 3 non-Korean experts who have professionally studied and are working in fields of Korean culture will be making an appearance on this program to compete against one another over the course of 3 rounds and only one winner will be selected.
50 offline audience judges and 50 online audience judges will be choosing and voting to select the final winner among the 3 contestants.
The audience judges who selected the final winner will be given a chance to learn Korean culture from the winner and the session will be shown on a VCR screen.
Instead of just showcasing Korean culture, the rounds have missions such as performing Korean culture in its original form in round 1, performing a fusion version of Korean and foreign cultures in round 2 and showing an improvised performance of Korean culture that suits foreign sentiments in round 3.
Mr. Jo Hyeon-tae, the producer of K-Culture Elite commented that, "Rather than just simply introducing Korean culture to people overseas, the goal of K-Culture Elite is to bring about a fusion of Korean culture with the culture and sentiments of each country in order to make it easy for foreigners to approach Korean culture." He also said, "K-Culture Elite was created so that instead of Koreans traveling the world to introduce Korean culture, many foreigners can learn Korean culture and become ambassadors of K-culture."
The fusion of traditions and modern values! The combining of Korean and foreign cultures! The first episode of K-Culture Elite, a program that provides a direction in the blending of different cultures, aired on May 12. This program will air every Thursday at 9AM.
