How much do you know about Korean history? KHM(Korean History Movie) program screened ‘Ode to My Fater - 국제시장' on September 29th, 2016. The movie ‘Ode to My Father' describes a lifetime story of ‘Deok-Su’ who went through all kinds of hardships from the Korean War to the Vietnam War. About 50 international students and 5 Yonsei Global members watched the movie together.
At 19:00, we started watching the movie. Although the movie contained few elements that may had been hard for international students to understand, I could see them sympathizing with the situations Deok-Su was facing.
Around 19:30, we had a break and ate pizza altogether. We could appease our hunger and refresh ourselves during the pizza break.
The movie ended at about 21:30. Some students I interviewed told me that it was their first time watching a Korean movie, and they had enjoyed it!
I hope to see more students in the next KHM night.
