Denmark and Korea will host a plethora of cultural and commemorative events all throughout 2019. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark will act as the Danish patron of this year’s joint cultural events, while Suejin Kang, the cultural icon and Artistic Director of the Korean National Ballet, will serve as the patron for the Korean side.

“It is my greatest pleasure and honour to inform all our friends and partners in Korea that in 2019, the cultural exchange between Denmark and South Korea will be strengthened through a significant cultural effort, involving key cultural figures and institutions in both Denmark and Korea, with the memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a Year of Culture signed between the two nation's Ministries of Culture at the centre,” said Danish Ambassador Thomas Lehmann, who hopes that the Year of Culture will lead to everlasting ties between the people, cultural institutions, and artists of Denmark and Korea.
