For over a month, the staff of Talk To Me In Korean and ROKing Korea have met up several times to discuss how to make this trip to the Yeosu Expo a fun and meaningful one. Considering that Yeosu is about 4.5 hours away from Seoul by bus and making a single-day trip to Yeosu with a lot of people would be a lot of work in itself, we tried to make the trip as fun and affordable as possible for everybody.
With the support of the Yeosu Expo Committee and the cooperation of ROKing Korea, we were able to lower the participation fee to only $15, and we also got the sponsorship from 최’s Kitchen, who provided us with 120 delicious lunch boxes!
The 5 hours or so that we had at the Expo was clearly not enough for anybody to explore all the exhibitions, performances and pavilions and the Expo, but we are very happy that we all had a lot of fun together and all came back safely. Thank you everybody once again for your cooperation and active participation in the missions!
We hope to organize more activities like this in the future, and in the meanwhile, here are some of the pictures that we took on the trip last weekend. : )
We’d like to express our special thanks once again to the Yeosu Expo Committee, ROKing Korea, and everybody who applied for, signed up for, and participated in this event!
We will post a video from the trip soon on our YouTube channel so subscribe to stay tuned as well at http://youtube.com/TalkToMeInKorean !
