＜KPOP Camp Participant Testimony＞
"I have learned a lot during the camp this week! People from various prefectures had gathered, walked about the streets of Seoul, and received a lot of lessons. It was a week full of various inspirations! It seems like a lie now that the unfamiliar atmosphere when joining at the airport is now, everyone was able to get along and enjoyable. People who like K - POP had gathered, talked about various Koreans, and provided information. It was really fun! Aside from those, we also ate delicious food for dinner at a restaurant."
＜Year-end Tour Camp Participant Testimony＞
"The first thing I felt when I came to Korea was that the people were very warm. However, when I interacted with Korean students, I was very nervous. I can only speak a little bit of Korean, so I was very anxious if I could communicate well. Nevertheless, I worked hard and tried to talk in Korean, while my Korean friends also tried hard in speaking Japanese."
