Foreign students working as interns for Seoul City on Wednesday experienced traditional Korean culture through the city's cultural program.

A total of 42 students, currently studying at Korean universities, tried the Bongsan mask dance, made flowers with Hanji-paper and pickled cabbage, later to be kimchi. They also enjoyed Nanta, Korea's representative non-verbal performance.

"Everything was so cool. I will show off my paper craft to my friends when I return home", said one participant. "I didn't know about the process of making kimchi before. It was really fun".

The exchange students from 15 countries, including five students from the public affairs school of Indiana University, are working as "global interns" in various departments of the city's municipal government to develop career experience, while promoting Seoul's global profile.

"I believe this program is a success. Not only does it deepen one's understanding of Korean culture, but also it helps interns make more personal connections", said an official.
