The Haeundae Sand Festival, which is considered one of the top annual festivals in Busan, kicked off on May 24. Under the theme of “When Music Meets Sand,” 14 artists were invited from 8 countries including the United States and Japan to create 20 gigantic sand sculptures. We went on the scene to check out the completed works as well as others, where the final touches were being added. This event not only showcases incredible works of art made with sand, but also offers the visitors, both young and old, to have some fun in the sand. This week, we take you to Haeundae Beach in Busan to check out the locals and tourists enjoying this special festival.

In Korea, June has been designated as the Month of Patriots and Veterans to remember and honor those who have dedicated their lives to our country. Related events are held across Korea on June 6, Memorial Day, and we paid a visit to Andong, which was one of sites of the anti-Japanese resistance movement. On a historical street with ties to the independence movement, female high school students transformed the glass windows of various shops to remind people of the importance of honoring the national heroes. In Gyeongju, a two-hour drive from Andong, we met up with students specializing in culinary arts, who cooked up a hot meal to be delivered to war veterans. We take you to meet the students, who are the future of our country, honoring the heroes of the past.
