Korean Culture Night (KCN) is the largest Korean-American student production in the United States and has been an annual tradition for 30 years. KCN is entirely student-run, featuring an original script, stage design, performances, and music. This year, KCN is set to return and will be held at UCLA’s Royce Hall on April 7, 2022.
The theme for this year’s production “You Are Not Alone / 넌 혼자가 아니야” will be focused around the student experience within the hyper-competitive Korean society. We hope that the event may spark conversations about the difficulties younger generations face, especially regarding mental and emotional health due to external stress and internalized pressure.
COVID-19 has brought many changes to our lives, and younger generations are especially prone to experiencing feelings of frustration and helplessness. We hope to explore these emotions and provide a sense of comfort through all of the performances we will be having on the premier night. We are all unique, gifted, and too strong to be defeated by a temporary setback, and we are very excited to showcase our understanding of the Korean culture with you soon!
