but we all belong to one human race.”

Global Village 2016, Korea Club

Written on December 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

It was a really big decision that Korea Club, one of the minority clubs with a few members, decided to join as a partner in the global village event. However, since it was a meaningful charity event, we wanted to participate. Of course, we didn’t want to miss an opportunity to exchange was not easy for clubs from various countries to miss a chance to be part of the cultural exchange with other clubs of other countries.

In addition to the Hanbok, Korean traditional dress, we prepared modernized version of Hanbok, which can be worn in real life so that the students can experience it. The colorful and harmonious design of Hanbok and the harmony of beautiful colors made a deep impression on the students about Korean culture. (However, the crowds and hot weather were another problems) Also, students who participated in the contest were given a lottery to give a gift of Nanta performance tickets and traditional Korean liquor, which enabled the student to appreciate other aspects of Korean culture.

Korean-style chicken barbecue, which is a good match with beer, rice cake Gangjeong, which was a pastry dish, rice cake to blow away heat, assorted meals that can not be missed during Korean holidays, sweet bread with sweet honey, which is a sweet finger food.
The time and money spent on deciding the menu, making it, buying food ingredients and carrying the food were only for one day of June 9th. Delicious foods we put our heart into caught many people’s attention and they enjoyed their palates happily. (It is a bonus to realize that I will never choose my career in the restaurant business!)

We finished it all well, but it was an unreasonable schedule. (I will not recommend joining the GV unless the club has than 10 members.) Korea club wanted to participate in stage events, so we had thought of several methods and found that the alcohol show was the only one we could go without leaving the booth entirely (ethic code violation! This show was not allowed by the organizer.) I wish the glorious prosperity of Korea club in 2017.
