After getting settled; Xinwen, Si Xiang, Jia Cheng, Mr.Kwo (President of Singapore Weiqi Association), Billy Chia, Philip, Miranti and Mr. Kim (official of Indonesia) went for a tour in Seoul from Hotel Sky. The journey was not easy due to the limitation of public transportation from the hotel, riding the bus going back Incheon International Airport (40-minutes), then buying ticket of 15,000 per person to go City Hall, Seoul for an hour journey.

Fortunately with Mr. Kim tagged along, he had brought the crew to varies attraction from Dalksugung Palace, Dongdaemun, Cheonggyechen Stream and a old streets (seemingly like Petaling Street of Malaysia) with many specialized shops.

Dated back 2007 to 2009, the person in-charge for overseas department was always Su Young and Sun Hye but obviously working for the baduk association likely not possible for everlasting and thus a new guy replaced Sun Hye, Mr. Park Chang Jin.

It was very fortunately to get to meet Sun Hye who would be leaving to Osaka, Japan the next day (22nd October, 2010).
