Volunteer candidates at Choon Chun, Korea
~ November and December 1972 ~

I arrived in Seoul,Korea, on November 27, 1972 on a flight from Seattle. The plane was full of Peace Corps Volunteer candidates. We bussed immediately to the capital city of Kang Wan Province, to a city called Choon Chun. Thirty two of us spent about 2 months at the King Sejung Hotel, learning the Korean language and culture and learning how to teach English As a Second Language. The group was great, the time was fun. Here's a picture of the fun:

Koreans like to sing alot.
Here are recordings I made in 1973
of a folk song (Arirang), a pop song (Peega Onun Dea) and a political song (Sae Mal Undong).
Mug shots of K-25 PCVs are below:

I would be interested in getting the photo you have made reference to. Allen Chernin was my brother and he died of cancer in 1985. I can be reached at swidlers@basit.com
