About Our Team

Our origins

Wanting to bring their love for the South-Korean culture to the public, K-Pop Belgium society was founded by Lena Scheers and Guido Bouckenooghe in 2015. The start of their journey soon marks the kick-off of our  festival ‘Hallyu Wave’. After a very succesfull first edition, the desire to share our love for the Korean culture continued. Soon after, more events followed and we could introduce to you our very own Hallyu Night and the collaboration with KOFICE in the shape of ‘K-Community Festival’ where we were joined by Dreamcatcher, Up10tion and various talented traditional performers.

Over the years our team has grown and is now complete after Sofie van den Broek, Melina Cajal, Inge De Groot and Nikky Claes joined us. We continue to work hard to bring more attention and love to the South-Korean culture and all its facets. However, we couldn’t have done this without our amazing crew of motivated volunteers.
