  On May 10, the Office of International Cooperation (OIC) held a K-pop dance class for foreign exchange Hanyangians at the Seoul Global Culture and Tourism Center.For an hour and a half, these Hanyangians learned the dance to T-ara’sLovey Doveyfree of charge. This was the second K-pop dance class session held, and the OIC plans to continue this program every other week.   
  The goal of this program is to provideHanyang’sforeignstudents the opportunity to experienceaspects of Korean culturefirsthand by actually engaging in physical activities that Korea is known for. “We [OIC] want to give our foreign exchange Hanyangiansa chance to learn about Korea in a way that’s different from what they might usually do or expect. So instead of having them just seeingor hearing about something from afar, we wanted them to actually becomeactive participants. We also want to give our foreign exchange Hanyangians a chance to interact with other people from diverse backgrounds,” said Kim Jae-hyun, a staff member of the OIC.
  The first time this K-pop dance class was held on April 24, it was met with a favorable response, so the OIC decided to continue offering it.There were twelve participants in the first session, but over twenty expressed interest in the second one.
  “I signed up for the K-pop dance class because I heard that K-pop was a huge part of the youth culture in Korea. I know it’s a common topic of conversation so I wanted to learn more about this aspect of Korea,”said HeiliSimila, a foreign exchange student at the Hanyang University Business School. “It is definitely something I want to do again. It was especially great learning the exact dance moves as the performers in their music video.It was really fun and I felt a little like a celebrity myself doing the moves.Plus, after havingparticipated in the K-pop dance class, I’m now familiar with at least one K-pop group, T-ara.”
