Korean Connection

Building Cultural and Economic Bridges

   Korean Connection is a non-profit organization in Grand Rapids formed by people who share connections with South Korea through family, friendships, business, culture, curiosity, or history.

         We support the exchange of ideas, understanding, appreciation, and support for the close historical and economic ties between the people of Korea, the U.S. and our own state of Michigan.

Cancellation

  1. The Road Less Traveled: Turning Obstacles into Opportunities for Success (Thursday, March 12, 2020) has been cancelled since Grand Valley State University is working to limit exposure to the Covid 19.

  2. Also, we announce that we must cancel the Korean language classes that were to start this weekend. GVSU has suspended all face-to-face student contacts and therefore we are not able to hold our classes which were to have been in their building. A refund will be sent to each of you. Hopefully, we can resume classes in the future.

  Thank you for loving us and stay healthy!

Chuseok:

A Korean Thanksgiving 

At the Goie Center 

  A spirit of gratitude and a spirit of connection infused Korean Connection's first-ever Chuseok event from start to finish.

 

  Chuseok, which means autumn eve in Korean, is a major, three-day harvest festival that has been celebrated for centuries in Korea as thanks for the year's good harvest. Korean Connection chose in 2019 to formally celebrate Chuseok for the first time in thanks to West Michigan for its many years of support and participation in the organization's Korean language classes, cooking classes and more.
