The Korean Community of Saipan is inviting 20 high school students from Saipan to visit South Korea this October so they could experience the Korean way of lifeand culture and how it differs from life on Saipan.
Association president Jaeyeol Ling hopes the students who will join the Oct. 12-16 trip will also get to learn the history and culture of Korea.
According to Ling, students will only have to pay $500 and the rest of the expenses will be covered by the organization.
At the moment, the trip to Korea is still in the planning stages and the Korean Community of Saipan is still waiting for applicants.
Last year, 23 students were selected to participate in the program, accompanied by five translators.
They explored places such as The War Memorial, Yongin zipline, Incheon, and Itaewon, Seoul.
