I Love Korea because…

Join the "I love Korea, because..." contest and win a brand new car!

I love Korea. And I love Seoul. I love seeing the taxes we pay working for us. I love watching the politicians passionately fight for their principles. (Seriously!) I love that I could eat street food without hesitation. I love taking the subway to work and seeing Han River during the day and at night. I love how sales ladies give me freebies when I go buy something at their store. I love watching Korean folk musical performances. I love the inexpensive museums and the parks smack right in the middle of the busy city. I love the provinces where we can go unwind and appreciate the beauty of the mountains. I love Korean food: cheonggukjang, kimchi jjigae, andong jjim dalk, kalbi tang and more! Oh I love Jang Dong Gun ;p
Even with its imperfections, I don’t see myself wanting to live somewhere else — except for a few months vacation in the US or in the Philippines;p
How about you? Do you love Korea, too? If you do, make a video of why you love the country and get a chance to win a brand new car and a trip to Korea. Lovely! I wonder if I qualify for this contest. Anyway, I’ll try to make a video and check it with vlc 2.0
You can read more about what to do and what the prizes are on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. I Love Korea, because…
UPDATE: Got a mail from MOFAT. Even naturalized Koreans can join this contest!

But im a liitle bit worried kung paano makabalik sa korea na wala daw akong cfo certificate? Do i need to get cfo certificate at anong ibang papers pa dapat ko eprepare o eprocess? Please help

    1. Hi Jana! Depende sa immigration sa Pinas kung paalisin ka nila kung wala kang CFO. Sa Korea basta may ARC ka walang problema.
