The 39th annual L.A. Korean Festival – located in Koreatown at the Seoul International Park on Irolo and San Marino – showcased the best of Korean culture. 

Street vendors sold both traditional and fusion Korean food and a singing and dancing competition celebrated the best of K-pop music. The festival's crowd was diverse with more non-Korean attendees than in past years, suggesting that K-Town has become a more globalized neighborhood.

The festival goes on until Sunday, Oct. 6.
