The program was done on November 6th in the National Folk Museum of Korea and it was carefully conducted under COVID-19 safety rules.
In total of 3 YG members and 2 exchange students participated in the program. We met in front of the Yonsei campus and took the bus together to the museum. The weather was great and on our way to the museum, we were able to see the beautiful autumn leaves. We also tried Korean street food, Gyeran-ppang (egg bread), before entering the museum.
We entered the museum and visited two permanent exhibitions. The first exhibition was about Korean traditional daily life and the second one was about a year in Korea. There were also immersive contents that showed the change of four seasons in Korea and we were surprised how realistic the contents were. Not only foreign friends but also YG members were able to see the daily life and culture of Korea from the past to the present.
After looking around the museum, we went to “만수의 정원”, a restaurant located in Bukchon Hanok Village to eat late lunch. We ate traditional Korean food like Bibimbap, Mushroom Bulgogi deopbap, and Sujebi. After eating lunch, we moved to a cafe and had a great time talking to each other. We hope that foreign students were able to have good memories with us!
