On June 3rd 2022, 2 YG members and 2 exchange students met at the front gate of Yonsei University at 6:00pm.

The first Korean Movie Night was held on September 6th. 4 exchange students, 3 Korean students, and 3 of the YG staff gathered on zoom at 6pm. We started out by getting to know each other, and we all took turns introducing ourselves, talking about our background and movie preferences.
Then, using “Teleparty”, which is a Chrome extension that allows people to watch movies together on Netflix, we started watching “About Time”. Students were free to comment on the movie while watching by using the chat function on Teleparty. The movie had both English and Korean subtitles, so we could select the language that we were most comfortable with.
After the movie, we came back to Zoom and had a short quiz time about the general plot of the movie. Everyone participated in the quiz, and at the end there were 3 winners who got to win prizes.
After that, we had some time to discuss the movie in depth. We talked about how it wasn’t a very typical romance movie but was still very enjoyable, and about the main character’s decision and the aspect of time travel in the movie. It was interesting to hear everyone’s different perspectives. Although we only met through zoom, everyone was chill and the mood was comfortable, so it felt like a real movie night with friends. I’m looking forward to the 2nd and 3rd Korean Movie Nights as well!
