Philippine KPOP Convention Inc., was once again invited by the ASEAN Culture House (ACH) and Korea Foundation for their program “2019 ACH Invitation Program for ASEAN Fans of Hallyu”. It is a 9-day and 8-night program which aims to share the Korean culture by inviting delegates from 10 ASEAN countries and allow them to experience it.
PKCI staff Jay, Ivan, and Ruth, represented the Philippines for this event. Their mission is to create a video about their experiences in the program and also promote it to fellow Filipinos. Through this program, they were able to experience and explore the extraordinary Korea. During their stay, they visited different places not only in Seoul but also in Busan and Gyeonggi Province.
One reason why a lot of people want to visit South Korea is to see their idols. During their second day in South Korea, they saw 2AM Jinwoon, BTOB Changsub, and TXT. And on their 8th day, they attended a music show and watched NU’EST and DAY6 perform.
Aside from that, they also visited SMTown COEX Artium, 1Million Dance Studio, and SM Entertainment to name some KPOP-related places.
But Korea is not only known for KPOP. They are also known for its beauty. One of the most visited places is the beautiful Gamcheon Village where the Little Prince is located.
Throughout this whole program, they did not only enjoy South Korea but also earned new friends from different ASEAN countries. All of these great experiences were made possible by: Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines, Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the Philippines, Korea Foundation, and ASEAN Culture House
