[Event Recap] KAC 2016 Lunar New Year Potluck


What a great time to be had by all. Full room with standing room only as we met new friends (even Skyped with friends in Korea) and networked with others (San Diego Korean Language Exchange, Asian Real Estate Association, Jindo Tales author, SDSU students and more). We ran out of time to play Yutnori but we’ll have the New Year tradition available for next time.

Event Recap of KAC National Convention (1/30/16) by James Pham

So I asked James Pham, one of KAC-SD’s board members, how his trip to the KAC National Convention was like. Here is his account: (thanks, James!)

Recently, I attended the KAC National Conference where Korean Americans from all over the country gathered to inspire, lead and unite together to share their stories, contributions and American success stories to the members and public… This was a very enlightening experience for me to learn from so many successful Korean Americans.

2/10/16: (Post!) Lunar New Year Event

Hi, Jini here. So 3 years ago, a Lunar New Year gathering was held at the Korea Daily building as a part of “Team Sejong / K-Konnect” event. We haven’t done anything like it in the years that followed, so thought it would be good to rekindle some old memories and make new ones by reviving that tradition! It’ll be like a reunion of the old members but also welcoming new members and anyone who would like to join. Also, this time, the event is held under the name “Korean American Coalition-San Diego” not just because KAC-SD is paying for the beverages and snacks (yay!), but more importantly because we want to promote KAC-SD’s existence in San Diego and grow membership so we can be more active and represent (K-Konnect pretty much = Team Sejong = KAC-SD). Anyone interested in Korean culture and the Korean community of San Diego (you don’t have to be Korean!) please come out and let’s meet!

Event name: “KAC-SD’s (Post) Lunar New Year Gathering”

Date and time: Wed, Feb 10, 2016, 7-9pm

Location: Korea Daily San Diego conference room (7750 Dagget St. Suite 206, San Diego, CA 92111) — behind the mall that has Caffe Bene and Min Sok Chon on Convoy St.

What are we going to be doing? We will provide some Korean beverages and snacks (feel free to pitch in food and drinks!). We will attempt to play Yutnori as a group and Skype our friends in Korea to get a glimpse of Seoul on a weekday 10am hour. We will try to broadcast the event on Periscope so anyone that could not make it can tune in and say hello. All in all, it will just be a few hours of casual gathering where we can share our interests in Korean culture and see what more we can do in collaboration to enjoy and promote Korean culture in San Diego.

Questions? Email Jini: shimjini [at] or leave a message on KAC-SD’s Facebook page.

Below is a video of the event from 3 years ago. Hope we can create a similar fun, friendly, and festive vibe!
