Join in on the K-FUN this summer in NY!

Celebration Spans Six Weeks from June to August with Focus on Korean Pop Music,
Art, Fashion, Wellness, Food and Traditional Cultural Experiences

The Shops at Skyview, a multi-level shopping destination in Flushing, Queens, has expanded its wildly popular annual “K-Fun” Korean cultural event to span six weeks, with one day during each designated week dedicated to exploring the vibrant and captivating facets of Korean pop music, art, fashion, wellness, food and traditional cultural experiences. From mid-June to early August, the center will provide an immersive series of six “summer classes” in a “Skyview High”-themed format that give attendees an entertaining deep dive into the most popular aspects of Korean culture. Participants who attend more than four of these cultural classes will receive a “graduation gift” that includes a signed postcard from beloved K-pop star Jung Dae Hyun. Each event is free of charge and open to the public. Pre-registration is required and tickets are limited. To learn more, visit https://www.theshopsatskyviewny.com/events.
