Royal Asiatic Society-Korea Branch
Welcome to the Royal Asiatic Society-Korea Branch

The Royal Asiatic Society Korea Branch (RAS-KB), after a dozen years of activity, was officially recognized by the London headquarters in 1900. As such, the RAS-KB is the oldest organization in Korea designed to introduce people to the beauty of this land in all its many aspects. It is also arguably the most active international cultural and social organization in Korea. The society offers both academic and 'low-brow' offerings for better understanding Korea with priorities placed on accurate insights and pleasurable means of learning.

The RAS-KB, a non-profit organization, aims to help people enhance their understanding of the arts, customs, history, social trends, and landscapes of Korea through lectures, cultural excursions, publications and special interest groups.

Our members are from all walks of life, all nationalities, all ages, all profession. Anyone with a sense of adventure and a bit of intellectual curiosity is welcome. Come and join us! Members receive a free copy of our Transactions and can use our library. Please also check out our weekly updated RAS Korea Facebook page!

We thank the 180 members and their guests for attending the 2018 Garden Party (June 9 at UK Ambassador's Residence), making it one of the largest and most successful events in recent years. During three hours of fellowship, while sharing plentiful beverages and food, new relations were formed and old friendships were reaffirmed. We are not only the world's first Korean Studies organization, we are also a society of friends and acquaintances.
