On June 25th 1950, the calm of the Korean Peninsula was suddenly interrupted by the screams of traumatized citizens at the fearful sight of the North Korean invasion. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, supported by the Soviet Union, invaded the Republic of Korea illegally. This was when neighbor turned against neighbor in a bloody civil war because of ideological conflict. This war has been known as ‘The Korean War’ and the 25th is designated as a national anniversary to commemorate the war.
 
This is not exactly a backwater town but whenever CBT reporters are tasked with reporting on the wonderful sights and quirks of Cheongju they inevitably default to Seongan-gil, Suam-gol, and Hyundai Department Store. But is there a new attraction in Cheongju other than the usual spots that we know so well? Today I have some exiting news for you. In this issue of ‘Experience,’ CBT reporters would like to introduce Cheongju’s latest attraction, Culture Manufacturing Facility-C.
 
Koreans have continued partaking in voluntary movements, like the independence movements during the Japanese colonial era, pro-democracy movements, and candlelight vigils. In the Japanese boycott, Koreans may be participating in movements in different ways than in the past. How did the independence activists protect Korea in the past? Let’s look back on the important meaning of the independence movements at Seodaemun Prison.
 
This year is the 50th anniversary of the Korea Electronics Grand Fair (KEGF), which was held in COEX Halls A to D from October 8th to the 11th for 4 days. 750 participating companies from 11 nations took part in the exhibition with 2,000 booths. This year’s fair theme was the Forum Where Culture and Technology Meet. KEGF is the nation’s largest electronics and IT business exhibition, and it gives its visitors a view of the fourth industrial revolution era’s future technology. The fair was divided into 3 exhibitions: KES (Korea Electronics Show), SEDEX (Semiconductor Exhibition), and iMiD (Korea Display Exhibition).
 
These days, most people can hardly afford to take a moment to enjoy the scenery outside the window. Also, it is not easy to pay attention to anything because they are so engrossed in the work that surrounds them. There isn’t much time to think about the people around them, the environment, or even the Earth. However, in places where people live together, things should be in harmony, and it is very important to protect the Earth and to coexist together. The National Geographic Photographic Exhibition highlights these themes, and it provides an opportunity for us to look at the Earth, the human race, and their surroundings.
 
Most people choose to travel to Japan because they don’t have much time when they want to visit nearby countries. Therefore, the number of Koreans who traveled to Japan has been increasing over the years. Last year, 7.54 million visitors went to Japan. However, many people canceled their trips to Japan recently due to the boycott and the decreasing number of planes flying to Japan. Considering these circumstances, a unique trip to Russia might be the solution for many Korean travelers who are looking for other destinations. The CBT reporter, Lee So-yoon, went to Russia. I will introduce my journey.
 
Jeonju Hanok Village is a famous tourist spot located in Pungnamdong, Wansan-gu, Jeonju-si, Jeollabukdo. The popularity of Hanok villages is growing day by day, drawing not only domestic tourists but also foreign ones. Since 2016, ten million tourists have visited a Hanok village each year. Jeonju is one of the more popular travel destinations, capturing the eyes of tourists with a variety of food and special activities. Also, with traditional culture and urban culture co-existing together, visitors can see the Jeondong Cathedral, Kyung-gi-jeon and Jeonju Pungnammun.
 
Three CBT reporters are members of the Dokdo Academy. The Dokdo Academy conducts national education and Dokdo excursion training for young people and college students who are interested in Dokdo in preparation for the Japanese invasion strategy. Japan has unreasonably recorded Dokdo as Takeshima in public institutions and publications around the world and has labeled the East sea as the Sea of Japan. The Dokdo Academy is a non-governmental, non-profit social contribution organization. It was established to correct these problems.
 
Osaka is a city in Japan and is a tourist attraction that many tourists visit. Osaka has many things to eat and enjoy, and many tourists go there for shopping. A CBT reporter decided to visit Osaka for a vacation to experience Japan and give the readers an indirect experience. Dotonbori is a crowded street in Osaka and is a place where many people enjoy shopping. There are cosmetic products, a drug store that sells miscellaneous items, cheap necessities and Don Quixote, a store where people can buy snacks.
 
The CBT surveyed 100 students from CBNU about the most desirable Korean cities to visit. Seoul was selected by 34 students, and Jeju Island was next with 27 students. CBT reporters visited Seoul, the most beloved city. Seoul is the capital of South Korea and the most populated city in Korea. Seoul is a significant location for modern architecture and has many tourist attractions such as N Seoul Tower, 63 Building, Han River, Lotte Tower, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Lotte World, and Cheonggye Stream.
 
CBT reporters visited Mount Songni. Mt. Songni is a national park located in Boeun-gun, Chungbuk and Sangju-si, Gyeongbuk. Mt. Songni is one of the most famous mountains in Korea. Its name is derived from an expression of renouncing the world. It was designated as Korea’s seventh national park in 1970. Its tallest peak, Cheonwangbong, is 1,058 meters high. Visitors can see many impressive things at Mt. Songni. Mainly, it is interesting to look at the types of giant rocks created by the changes that took place during the Cretaceous Era.
 
The CBT reporters visited Itaewon for this 181st newspaper issue. They arrived at Itaewon Station about 10 minutes after taking a taxi from Gangnam Express Terminal. When reporters came to the station, there were lots of foreigners. One reporter said, ‘Is there another place where foreign culture has developed so well in Korea?’ Many foreigners who live in Korea visit Itaewon because there are plenty of nice bars and cafes rather than ordinary restaurants.
 
For this second semester, CBT planned a special program for readers to introduce the areas around Cheongju and throughout the country. I hope that reading this newly-planned feature of Experience will help readers indirectly experience places that they have not been to. Furthermore, CBT hopes that students will go on an actual trip with a backpack instead of just experiencing it here. For this first edition of Experience, we would like to inform the students about the Sangdang Fortress,
 
During a semester of lectures, CBNU students, especially freshmen, have experienced school events such as gatherings and exams. In June, CBNU students are looking forward to vacation. Most of them will go home and plan a trip with their families or friends. However, some exchange students will stay at school. What will they do? Lu-xuefeng, a Chinese student in a doctorate course, said, “I will conduct an experiment for my studies at CBNU. I can’t leave CBNU for a long time because of my studies. Therefore, I will travel around Cheongju.” He even asked for a recommendation of places to travel.
 
This article is the last story of Gamonwan’s campus life series, which CBT introduced this year. It has been months since she came to Korea, and the season has changed. The exchange student life of Gamonwan is nearing its end with the change of the seasons. In this article, we interview her about her feelings during her stay in Korea.
 
There are many people in CBNU. Many students who are studying at CBNU, the professors who teach them, and staff members who are active to help activities go smoothly are all working here. In this article, we will talk with CBNU foreign exchange students from various countries.
 
In the last issue, we heard about Gamonwan’s story of her preparation as a CBNU exchange student. She got everything ready and came to Korea in March. Now, we are going to hear about the first month of her life as an exchange student. It’s been one week at CBNU. When I searched the weather about Korea from Thailand, I really worried about the cold weather. Therefore, I came to Korea wearing thick clothes.
 
The Chungbuk Times prepared small tips for CBNU’s exchange students to help them enjoy campus life in CBNU and Korea. First, you should become friends with the leader of your major. All college schedules and meetings are communicated by the leader of each major. The fastest way to become familiar with Korean students is to get close with the leader of your major.
 
2018 has come. For the new year, CBT is introducing a new series. This semester, we will welcome exchange students at CBNU to describe their daily lives and adjustments to life in Korea and CBNU. We hope that you can show how exchange students adapt to Korea. Gamonwan from Thailand is going to tell us about her Korean adaptation period. I hope everyone will welcome our new friend Gamonwan.
 
We celebrate Christmas Day on December 25th every year. We know that Christmas is a holiday and just typically enjoy the festivities, but many people do not know very much about Christmas. “Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh (Hey!)” This song is ‘Jingle Bells’, one of the most famous carols, but did you know that Jingle Bells was a song intended for Thanksgiving Day?
