Beyond Boracay and BTS

Beyond Boracay and BTS 

by Gift Herrera

South Korea and the Philippines' alliance can be traced way back 1950 when Filipino combat troops were deployed to fight in the defense of South Korea during the Korean War. Since then, our friendship blossomed through the years which is pretty evident as Koreans top our most number of tourist visiting Philippines especially for learning English and our beaches, as well as Filipinos embracing Korean culture such as Unlimited Samgyupsal and Kdramas dubbed in Tagalog.

Both of our countries have also experienced tragedy like the recent eruption of the Taal Volcano alongside with the sudden Sokcho Wildfire, but we have strengthen our bond as we help each other get through these difficult times. These are the reasons I believe why our attachment with each other go way beyond Boracay and BTS, or even Dried Mangoes and Kimchi. I'm hoping this 2020 will bring us closer and may we learn from each other as we face a new decade.
