Seoul City Logo "Haechi"


Sparkling Korea

Hi friend's today I attend the World Students In Korea 2nd Batch Cultural Tour. I am so thrilled to meet new friends there and taking part the activities. But it is sad that the2nd batch is going to get over soon. For me this is the first time I am attending the 2nd batch cultural activities due to some technical problem I am unable to get information earlier.




But today's programme made me so happy because I learned many things today and able to see the South Korean President Blue house as well.And another interesting part is that I able to take picture with the former late President of South Korea's real picture. I used to admire him a lot and today I get a wonderful opportunity to see those powerful person's picture, who put all their effort to build a Powerful progressive and powerful country called South Korea. With their effort today South Korea is in this stage.
