  1. Ate Betchay, where and how can I send the application form after filling it up? I really hope na makapasok po ako sa program na ito. Than you! I hope you can help me.

  2. Hi ate Betchay! hay sayang I really wanted to be in the program but sadly I don’t fit in the categories as I have already finished my college and already passed my board exam July last year :(. I really wanted to study there sana :). Anyways I already sent the email. Did you get it po? πŸ™‚

  3. Hi ms betchay! I discovered your site 3 months ago while researching about south korea because of our trip. It’s really very informative. And maybe it’s because it’s from a Filipina point of view, that’s why I became hooked into often checking your site :).
    Our trip is next week. But we are worried about the weather forcast in Seoul from Sep14-18. According to accuweather.com, it will be rainy during those days. Medyo worried lang po kmi kasi baka hindi kami makapmasyal & when they say rainy, as in maghapon po ba? I hope you could give us some insight :). Thanks! – coco
