Prof. Ahn Tae Young, and two of his students manage the Korean Cosmetics Kiosk at the Half Moon Drive during the 2018 International Research Conference in CPU.
Managed by a Korean Professor, Ahn Tae Young, and two of his students majoring in beauty care at Tongmyong University, the bazaar was held on August 28-29, 2018 at the Halfmoon Drive. Available products for sale included beauty care products. As a bonus, the bazaar distributed brochures on beauty tips for free.
The proceeds from sales of the Korean products were turned over to Central Philippine University to be used as allowance for Korean scholars. One of the students, Park Nahyeon, explained that the Bazaar is part of the two-day International Entrepreneurship Conference held at the Educational Media Center in CPU on the same dates as the bazaar.
Currently, there are 25 Koreans enrolled in the various colleges of the University and in Graduate School while 6 are enrolled in pre-collegiate programs.
