Barry is the person who most passionately share K-culture with people from overseas like him among expats whom Ive ever met.
He’s busy with working for Sookmyoung Unv. but continues organizing many book concerts inviting famous Korean authors such as Shin Kyoungsook신경숙, Gong Jiyoung공지영 and so on.
Many expats could have great chances to listen to the authors’ voices and to ask questions to them in person.
A few months ago, he started another programs for showing important K movies to expats. He not only screens present popular K movies but also classical K old ones in 50~60s.
Lots of expats attend his events and get to know more about K culture enjoying it.
I always appreciate Barry’s effort.
He really deserves to be a Honerary citizen of Seoul.
I strongly nominate Barry Welsh.
