I participated in the HaemiEupseong festival in Seosan on the 13th of October. The event was very interesting and I had the opportunity to experience more of Korean culture. We saw exhibitions, ate Korean food and got to visit the beautiful fortress. The experience was overall very pleasant. We wore traditional clothes and took part in the martial arts exam. I was a bit disappointed that there was no actual martial art lesson/class as it was stated in the program when I applied. We were given very little instructions and put in the arena unsure what to do. It was a bit confusing and I was disappointed that I didn't actually learn anything new. Also, we didn't do archery, even though it was supposed to be a part of the experience. I was very grateful however for the great generosity of the organization, that allowed us to visit a new city and experience new things completely for free.
