1. Korea University
Korea University is 5-10 minutes walking distance from Anam(Korea University Hospital) Station, and Korea University(Jongam) Station on Line 6. It is well-known for its accessibility from the subway station.
The name of the university is pronounced as ‘Go-ryeo’ in Korean. It was named after the old Kingdom of Goryeo(918-1392) in Korean history. The country existed just before the Chosun Dynasty, being famous for its sophisticated culture. Outside Goryeo, it was written as Corea and it finally became Korea as now. That’s the reason why Korea university’s Korean pronunciation and its written name is different.

To get admission to the K-Arts is not easy. People say most universities give the admission to their applicants if there still are seats for enrollment. But the admission committee of K-Arts has applied strict rules, they won’t select the applicants in case they can’t see the creativity at the audition, even when they don’t get full enrollments.
