Who Are We
Blue Hanguk Society is a student organization that aims to promote Korean culture, language, and history with contemporary media as its main avenue to the Loyola Schools community. As the student arm of the Ateneo Korean Studies Program, BlueHan provides opportunities for students to discover more about and express their enthusiasm towards the Korean culture.
Why should you join us?
- ✔ As the Philippines continues to embrace more of Korean culture through different media, learning more about Korean culture becomes important because it allows members of the Ateneo community to gain a better grasp of how we become influenced by cultures from all around the world. BlueHan, then, provides the Ateneo community with projects that showcase the different forms of the Korean Wave. Moreover, members are given the opportunity to meet other people who have the same interests, creating bonds and strengthening a community that shows the same appreciation and passion for Korean culture.
Our Yearly Projects
Forever Young is the organization's project for celebrating the Korean style of beauty and wellness. It is a talk series where experts from the different fields of fashion, beauty, and wellness come to give advice and tips to members of the Ateneo community who are interested in learning more about the latest health and beauty trends in Korea.
Based on the real Korean tradition, Seollal is the annual project of the organization that aims to celebrate the Lunar New Year in Korea. Traditional practices and games are introduced to the Ateneo community to further deepen their knowledge about the tradition and, in turn, celebrate it with others.
