On November 20th, with early Christmas carols ringing on the streets in Korea, 3 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Namsan Tower located in Yongsan-gu, Seoul. Since it was a time when the coronavirus had increased again, we never took off our masks except when we took pictures. In fact, the official name of Namsan Tower is Namsan Seoul Tower, which Koreans usually call Namsan Tower....
On November 7, 9 YG members and 2 exchange students met at Seoul Arts center, which is the most famous Arts Center in South Korea. Someone met at Yonsei University and then headed to Seoul Arts Center, and the rest of participants directly went to the center.
The concert we appreciated was Beethoven string quartet No.7 in F major “Rasumovsky” and No.9 in C major. Quartet is just composed of two violinists, one violist and one cellist, but each sound was so powerful that nobody got bored during the concert. Everyone said especially cellist’s pizzicato was impressive, and that’s the key point of Beethoven’s string quartet. The whole concert took an hour and a half.
The weather was nice and clear, and we took a photo in front of the music hall. Near Seoul Arts Center, there was few restaurants to go, so we move to Gyodae Station for having a meal.
As a final program of our program, we went to a bossam restaurant to try bossam and red crap soup. It was the first time for exchange students to try Makguksu, buckwheat noodles, plus kimchi and makguksu was a little bit spicy, but we all enjoyed the meal and had a good time.
