After two successful events thrown in the last month, SeoulSync Events is back with our third and final event to round off the year.  It’s been a big and eventful year for SeoulSync overall, expanding from a web mag and photography to events and productions (SeoulSyncTV coming soon!). SeoulSync Events was launched as a means for us to engage with our community, organize fun events where people can also network, and help bridge the gap between Korean natives and foreigners living in Seoul.

As it’s the holidays, we’ve decided to throw a Christmas-themed party for all us Seoulites to get together one last time to celebrate the festivities, and for us to show our appreciation for all those supporting and sticking with us throughout the year! SeoulSync’s wide range of contributors will be in attendance from writers, photographers, event coordinators, production/media team members, and more. We also strongly encourage all of those interested in SeoulSync’s mission to come out and get a chance to network with our talented contributor base. We’d love to meet you!

What’s On: Starting from 9pm we’ll be putting on some festive activities such as raffles, a short Holiday Trivia Quiz, and an Ugly Sweater Contest!

We’ll be giving out $20 credits or gift cards from one of our sponsors throughout the night!

Holiday Trivia Quiz
The end of the year also signals the end of exams for many of Seoul’s students, but keep those minds sharp for one last test – we promise this one will be way more fun.  Brush up on that Christmas trivia!  You can participate in a group or individually.  It’s up to you, as long as you get involved!

Ugly Sweater Contest
It’s the holidays so we understand if you want to get glammed up or arrive in costume. Or don your favourite Christmas sweater. What you wear is up to you! But bear in mind our Ugly Sweater Contest.  This is the only time of the year you can get away with wearing some hideous knit sweater without making a (complete) fool of yourself. The ugliest Christmas sweater walks away with a prize in hand! Dig out that old sweater or hit those flea markets!

We look forward to seeing you there! Happy holidays from SeoulSync!
