Lunar New Year Celebration Held for International CBNU Family

 

 Share the warmth of new year celebrations with our international family.

 

 Our university held the “New Year Celebrations for the CBNU International Family” on January 18th at 03:30 PM at the Samsung Cultural Center Geon-Ji Art Hall to mark the traditional holiday Seollal, the first day of the lunar calendar. 

 

Open to all international students and faculty members, the event is held every year to share Korean holiday traditions and promote friendship with our international community members.

 

Accompanied by President Geo-Suk Suh, nearly 200 international students and faculty members were in attendance on this day to enjoy a myriad of performances, including a piece by master pansori singer Min Sook Kim and a recital using traditional instruments like the haegeum and ajaeng.

 

Students also had the opportunity to learn traditional Korean songs, try out traditional folk games such as jegichagi and yut-nol-ee, and compete in an impromptu talent contest.

 

During his welcoming address, President Suh said, “As Korea’s most important holiday approaches, we hold this ceremony every year to allow international students to experience Korean culture and most importantly, to have a great time and share the warmth of the holidays. Although you may be away from your home, I hope you enjoy and welcome the Lunar New Year with the family you have forged here at CBNU.” 

 

This ceremony has been held every year since 2003 for international students who have to spend the Lunar New Year away from their family back home. It has been hugely popular and successful because members of our international community get to learn new aspects about Korean culture and it also promotes friendship with our international students and faculty members.
