Students from around the world promote Jeju through song

Students from Korea, China and Japan whom are studying in the United States gathered together to create a song to promote Jeju-do, Korea's largest island. The island is currently competing to be listed in the New Seven Wonders of Nature, an initiative led by the Swiss-based non-profit New7wonders Foundation.

The title of this song is “Our Precious Gem, Jeju,” and was composed by Jung Eun Kwon and with lyrics by Cheong Kim, both students at the Berklee College of Music. Vocals were provided by Jourdan Rystrom, Megumi Habuka, Erman Nuo, Jiyoon June Dong, Isaac Han, Ai Ichikawa, Sarang Lovie Oh, Genyong Jason Choi and Kina Lee.

The event was organized by the group MiYooMo, which brings together students studying abroad.

MiYooMo created a Jejudo promotional logo for smartphone users, which can be downloaded along with the song at

The leader of MiYooMo said that it’s crucial to promote Jeju to people all around the world in order to ensure its selection as one of the New Seven Wonders.
