A trip to Korea is the dream of every avid K-Popper and overseas students. From food to culture, music to history, and hiking to nightlife, it seems like South Korea would be the trip of a lifetime! Free yourself from the headaches of planning and scheduling by leaving it to Korea University International Summer Campus (KU ISC)! By participating in KU ISC, the dynamic and well-rounded immersion and exchange experience are going to be the only thing you talk about when you return home! Here are the top five things you can do to beat the summer heat in Korea while you are studying abroad at KU International Summer Campus 2018!
1. Flash mob to Your Favorite K-pop Song!
When you're in Korea it's easy to attend a K-pop concert, but wouldn't it be even better if you became the K-pop star yourself? Well, yearn no longer! Every year, hundreds of international students at KU ISC perform flash mob dances in central Seoul. The KU ISC has earned these students' the title of the largest flash mob in Korea, so you do not want to miss out on this one-of-a-kind experience. Don't worry if you aren't the best dancer, you can take KU ISC K-pop dance class and all your friends will be there next to you! Live out your dream of being a K-pop star! Check out our last year performance below:
2. Go shopping in Myeongdong!
Fashionable and bustling Myeondong is only 20 minutes away from Korea University's campus! With people filling the streets, this ultra-popular Seoul district will offer anything from your favorite K-pop goods to high-end designer items. Don't forget about the yummy street food you can buy from the vendors lining the sidewalks and roads! This is one place you do not want to forget your wallet at!
3. Eat! Eat! Eat!
Take advantage of the local culture and live as the Romans do! Try eating Korean food with your friends and family. With foods like BBQ'd meats, kimchi, stew, tofu stew, soups, sides and more, there is no shortage of delicious things to eat! As a bonus, if you get want a snack, we recommend trying out a number of unique and chic cafes in Korea! Korea University ISC also offers a Korean cooking class as a cultural activity you're welcome to learn about and take part of!
4. Soak up the sun with Summer Festivals!
You study hard from Monday to Thursday at KU ISC, so you deserve to go out and have some fun on Friday! The summer months draw people outdoors, and with so many fun events to take part of, it's hard to pin down the right event for everyone. We recommend one of the most internationally popular events in Korea, the Boryeong Mud Festival, which includes mud baths, massages, wrestling, music, and more! Mud is not your thing? Get yourself over to the Busan Sea Festival where you can have fun splashing in the crystal clear water and enjoying music and performances with your friends!
5. Become best friends with KU students and International Students at KU ISC!
The best part of being abroad is that you can meet new friends and at KU ISC, you can meet people from all over the world with all types of backgrounds! You can't be happier anywhere else. From K-pop to Korean history, you have a chance to take part in all aspects of the learning experience and cater your experience and education to your liking! KU ISC is the total package! The great news is that you can enjoy Early Bird Benefit if you apply for KU ISC 2018 by February 28. So, get yourself ready and see you guys in Korea very soon!
