The holiday season is just around the corner, and there's no better time to throw a Korean-themed party for your friends. And if you’re struggling with planning it, don’t worry, we’ve got your back!

This blog will give you some exciting ideas for planning the perfect Korean themed-party; it’s sure to impress all your friends. You could make it a cozy affair by popping open some instant ramen cups and putting on a K-drama, or you could go all-in by taking out an indoor grill and making some smoking Korean barbecue with your folks.

Here’s a foolproof plan for throwing the best Korean-themed party:

Get the Décor Right

Do you want an all K-Pop extravaganza, a K-drama sleepover, or a fandom party? Once you’re done picking a theme, head to your local party décor store or browse online marts to buy confetti, banners, lights, and party favors.

We recommend metallic, bright colors as they best illustrate Korean culture. If you've picked a specific K-pop band, stick to their colors for added aesthetic appeal.

Don’t Skip the Snacks.

A Korean themed party is pointless if the classic snack table is missing. Don't forget to stock up on spicy ramen with cheese singles, Binggrae (Melona or fish-shaped ice cream), seaweed strips, honey butter Korean chips, bottles of Soju, Pepero, etc.

You can find all of these yummy Korean snacks and more here at SFMart.

Lay Out an Epic Korean Menu

If you're planning to invite your family & friends for a Thanksgiving meal for a simple dinner, here are some easy-to-make yet finger-licking good Korean dishes that will take your party up a notch!

Kimchi Pancake

Plan Fun Games

Organizing a game like K-pop karaoke or K-pop idol is a great way to amp up the fun at your Korean party. You can also arrange a scavenger hunt, dancing, or pop quizzes based on Korean culture and music.
