In February we all celebrated Seollal with a lovely meal at Kalbi restaurant. We were lucky to be joined by BKWS member Dr Kim Jeong Suk, who lives in Seoul but had been in the UK for a short time. Dr Kim managed to reschedule her return to Korea so she could join us for our celebratory meal. It was a great chance for fellow members to catch up with her.
Our member Kwak Hae Shin, who owns the Hanmi Gallery in maple street recently opened another gallery in Seoul. BKWS wishes Hea Shin much success with the new gallery.
Details of current exhibitions can be found on the gallery website www.hanmigallery.co.uk
Official photos from the Investiture ceremony where Sylvia Park was presented with her MBE by H.R.H The Prince of Wales.
Sylvia was awarded her MBE in the Queen's Birthday honours list last year and was presented with her award on 30th January at Buckingham Palace.
Sylvia commented on the event, "So very thrilled, happy and proud I was on that day to represent in the UK my country of birth. The first Korean expatriate living in the UK to receive such an award. It was a joy to receive such an award and an honour to be recognised by my friends and peers in this manner."
Sylvia Park-Timmons MBE
