On June 3rd 2022, 2 YG members and 2 exchange students met at the front gate of Yonsei University at 6:00pm.

On October 24th 2021, 4 YG members and 3 exchange students visited a roller-skating rink at Sinrimdong. 2 YG members and the 3 exchange students met at the gate of Yonsei University and headed to Sinrim riding the subway, while the other 2 members joined at Sinrim until 2:30pm. After meeting up in front of the subway station, we took some time to introduce ourselves. Then we headed straight to the skating rink.
We lent ourselves each a pair of roller-skates along with protection gear for safety. Firmly equipped, we left our luggage in the lockers and started right on with skating.
A lot of the YG and exchange students skated amazingly as they spun rounds and rounds around the wide rink. The skating rink was full of blaring K-Pop music with a wide range from the early 2000’s up to the latest popular idol songs.
When the long skating or the overheated skate rink tired us, we took short brakes at the seats set up around the corners. There we not only rested our exhausted legs but also exchanged short conversations, concerning topics such as our different cultures, majors, favorite dramas or hobbies. We also took turns taking cool videos of each other as the other spun around the corner and posed.
After skating until 5pm, we headed out for dinner. 33dang, a famous Korean BBQ restaurant at Sinrimdong, was our destination. We had a great satisfactory dinner. While eating we also enjoyed the longer conversations and thus got to know each other and the shared cultures better. It was a very exciting and meaningful experience that the program provided for all of us.
