March KClub Meeting

Been watching K-Dramas for years and want to meet new K-Drama lovers?  Love BTS but don’t know much about Korean television?  Break out the kimchi and join us to watch an episode of one the hottest Korean shows, then pop onto a Zoom call to chat about the show, the newest Korean music, and Korean culture – all from the comfort of our own homes.

On March 13, from 3:00pm – 5:00pm, we will be watching the pilot episode of “Tale of the Nine-Tailed.”  Lee Yeon, a nine-tailed fox with the ability to transform into a human form, spends his days eliminating dangerous supernatural beings while also searching for the reincarnation of his lost love. Nam Ji-ah, a television producer, works on a show that searches for proof of the existence of supernatural beings. When Lee Yeon’s unsavory half-brother takes an interest in Nam Ji-ah, Ji-ah might just get that proof she needs – plus so much more than she bargained for.

Ages 16+

Registration is required to receive the Zoom link and viewing instructions.  Register on the event calendar here.
