Making Songpyon and Sharing Love
The 5th "Making Songpyon and Sharing Love" was held by Women's Affairs (WA) in the first floor at Kyesankwan on Sep. 18. Songpyon is a special rice cake for Choosok (Korean Thanksgiving Day).
"When I studied abroad, there were few opportunities to learn about Korean culture. So I want to give Dongguk students a chance to appreciate traditional Korean culture through making a Korean food," said Lee Hye-eun, the director of the WA.
Foreign students attending DU took advantage of this festival. While shaping rice dough with student volunteers for this festival, they learned individually what Koreans usually do on Choosok.
"Now I can see why participants look so happy while they are making odd-shaped cakes. Sitting around and chatting with people is another flavor of Korean culture," said Bo Hang, a foreign Buddhist monk,  who is taking a Korean language course at the Center for Language Research and Institute.
This festival ended with an award ceremony. Seven students who shaped Songpyon best received awards. Foreign students were not used to shaping nice cakes but it was the worth effort.
Participants and Chamsaram service club shared steamed Songpyon with elderly citizens around the school.
