Bilingual Readings


Yeok-si(translated poetry) is a multilingual poetry reading which engages with both poets and translators. For this event, poems selected by poets are translated into various foreign languages. First launched in 2016 as part of “The Culture Day-Meet the Author” program, Yeok-si  moved its location to the poetry bookstore Wit N Cynical in 2017. Then in 2019, it began reaching out to a wider readership across the country, taking place in 7 regions including Incheon and Gangwon Province. From 2020, new approaches such as online streaming of the readings, the review video of each event are introduced to bring more audience in diverse way.
