Students from the Korean class experienced something quite special this last week, appearing in not only one but TWO television programs.
The first was a segment for a program called Korea Today which will braodcast on Arirang TV on Wednesday this week (23rd) at 7:00 am (KST).
The students had a lot of fun dressing up like PSY and getting interviewed.
The second is for a program called 투게더 (Together) broadcasting on TVN mid November (official date and time TBA)
The Lexis Korea students met up with the TV crew and other participants from all over the world at Gyeongbokgung Palace to start their day.
They were then taken to a beautiful traditional Korean style restaurant and experienced a table full (literally!) of traditional Korean food ranging from different types of kimchi, grilled fish, tofu soup, vegetables and pancakes. The food was delicious and the atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely.
All the food was only the beginning of the adventure!
Next the students were taken to the Hanok Village which displays real hanok (traditional Korean houses) and traditional Korean activities.
The students got to experience decorating bows and arrows.
Dominic from Switzerland was very creative and decorated his bow with a Swiss and Korean flag!
The students also were able to try on hanbok (traditionak korean clothes) and looked magnificent!
As the day drew to a close, the group was taken to a rather unique place.
It was a hanok refurbished into a dentist/cafe/bar/live music venue.
The owner of the stylish venue was originally a dentist but wanted to share the beautiful hanok with more people so made a cafe-bar space.
Here the group enjoyed traditional Korean musical performances.
It was a great day for students to experience Korean culture and meet fellow foreigners living in Seoul!
