With the boost of koreanovelas (Korean TV soap opera) in the Philippines, Filipinos has become highly aware of the Korean culture today. In fact, since 1949, the Philippines and Korea had already established good bilateral relations.
To strengthen the bond of both nationalities, the United Korean Community Association in the Philippines (UKCA), along with other local groups & communities, has organized a cultural exchange festival every year to showcase both cultures shared by Filipinos and Koreans.
