On May 14th 2022, 4 Yonsei Global members and 3 exchange students gathered at our Yonsei University Sinchon campus to visit Kyungbok Palace.

On 29th October 2021, 4 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Naksan park. First, we met at the front gate of Yonsei University and headed to Haewha station at 5:00 pm. Since it was dinner time, before heading up to the Naksan Park, famous for its night view, we had Shabu Shabu for dinner. While having dinner, we introduced ourselves and had little ice-breaking sessions to get to know each other. It was the first time that exchange students tried Shabu Shabu, and they seemed to be surprised at how much vegetables and side dishes were served for one meal. After eating meat and vegetables, we also had Kalguksu (noodle) and Korean porridge, which they truly enjoyed!
Around 7pm, we finished eating dinner. Finally, the sun went down and we were able to see some stars in the sky. Then, together, we walked towards Naksan park. The weather was perfect for a little walk – not cold, not hot. Exchange students seemed surprised after we explained the history behind Naksan park. The wall itself was beautiful and along with Seoul’s night view. Both exchange students and YG members had photo time along the city wall.
At the top of the Naksan park, we were able to see both Namsan tower and Lotte tower. Also, when we were walking down to the entrance, we saw Dongdaemun. We had so much fun together and it was refreshing for us to observe the whole Seoul city from the top. We hope this experience is a memorable one for everyone!
