As their first project together, they will provide a program for KF‘s e-school lectures for universities overseas, including Middlebury College in the US, Ecole Normale Superieure, and EDHEC Business School in France this year. The organization has been providing content for Korean studies and Korean language lectures to foreign universities through its e-school project since 2011.

This lecture will be taught using Big Hit Edu’s education textbooks titled “Learn! KOREAN with BTS,” which was co-developed with HUFS professor Heo Yong to help K-pop fans learn the Korean language through BTS-related cultural content.

“As cultural products like K-pop sensation BTS and director Bong Joon-ho‘s film ‘Parasite’ become recognized worldwide, we see that the interest in the Korean language has rapidly increased. ’Learn! KOREAN with BTS’ lectures will greatly contribute to encouraging Korean language learning abroad and promoting Korean language and culture,” KF President Lee Geun said in a statement.
