THE FIRST 2004 Global Fair sponsored by the Yonsei Global, was held in the
Global Lounge from Nov. 3 to 5. The festival included various kinds of events,
which introduced Asian culture.
On the first day, there was an Asian film fair. The Global Lounge showed many
Asian countries' films. On the second day, human board game and tea party were
held. Yonseians and exchange students enjoyed the games together and
learned about the countries and cultures of Asia through the games. On the last
day of the fair, there was the Asia fashion show and Karaoke party. At the Asia
fashion show, Yonseians and exchange student models showed traditional Asian
costumes. Audience could try on the costumes afterwards. Also, participants
could experience the Korean Karaoke culture together at the Karaoke party.
"The purpose of this festival is to offer the Yonseians and the exchange
students an opportunity to get together and learn about various cultures," said
Kim Na-ryung, team manager of the Dept. of Culture of Yonsei Global. "The
festival was really impressive. The best thing was that students could
participate in the events directly, such as wearing costumes, playing board
games and etc." said Noh Eun-jung (Fresh., Area of Science).
The Yonsei Global is planning to have the Global Fair every semester from now
on, each time having a topic on different continents. The defaults made at
