About UP Arirang

Organization Profile & History

The University of the Philippines Arirang is a special interest organization composed of students from any degree in the University of the Philippines Diliman. It is a university-based and university-wide organization.

UP Arirang was established on July 16, 2006. It was formed in order to respond to the growing number of Korean students in UP and the Filipino students who are interested in Korean language and culture.

Two students from the Korean 10 class, Xandi Eleazar and Inero Ancho, thought of making an organization that can help the Korean Exchange students in UP to adapt to the Philippine lifestyle and environment. They were joined by the Korean exchange students in UP who resided in the International Center, namely Kim Seung-su from KUT, Lee Hwa-young and Moon Sun-hee from Hannam University. Other Korean founding-members were from Hallym University.
