    The city of Seoul is giving foreigners Korean names to promote the beauty and excellence of Korean language, the Hangeul.

    Any foreigner can apply on the city’s English website until December 7th by submitting their Korea-related personal stories.

    The city will then choose ten people and give them Korean names which will be delivered via email.

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government first ran the contest to commemorate the Hangeul Day in October.
