[Closed] InKAS Cooking Class

Dear InKAS Members,

We will be starting our new cooking class on Wednesday, September 7th at a NEW location.  There are 12 sessions, and we ask that all participants attend a majority of the classes.  The classes will be held each Wednesday and will run until the end of November. 

The class is for InKAS paid members only.  The registration fee is 10,000 won.  If you have already registered and paid for the previous cooking classes then you do not need to pay the registration fee again.  

There are a couple of differences between the old cooking class and the new cooking class.  First, the new class will run 2 hours, from 7pm-9pm.  Also, instead of a Korean fusion style, the new place will focus on more of a traditional style.  Finally, the new cooking class will involve more preparation time and learning, whereas the previous place most of the ingredients were pre-prepared.

Below are directions to Korea House and a menu for the entire cooking class course.  We hope you will participate in this great opportunity and learn how to cook delicious Korean dishes!  Please email inkas21@yahoo.co.kr if you would like to sign up, and we will send you an application form.


[Closed] Free Movie Showing on the 28th!

Event date: 2011-07-28

You and your friends are invited to a free showing of the 1974 "어제 내린 비" - "It Rained Yesterday"  The film is about the dramatic lives of three young adults living in Korea during the 1970's and involves a complex love triangle between a couple and their friend.   

The movie will be shown on July 28th at 1pm near the World Cup Stadium. (see link below for directions)

The director of the film will be present at the movie showing because he intends to create a new film based on the real life of the main character in 어제 내린 비.  Part of the new film will include a recording of the people watching 어제 내린 비 on July 28th, so if you come to the movie showing you will be included in the director's new film!  Therefore, for regulatory reasons we need a complete list of the people who will come, so please let us know by email or facebook if you will come, thanks!

Hope to see you all there!!

Public Announcement: Reduced Services

 Dear All InKAS members,

This year marks InKAS’ 12 years of devoted service to the Korean Adoptive community at large. Unfortunately due to the Ministry of Social Welfare’s unexpected budget cut for post adoption agencies, such as InKAS, we are publically announcing our service downsizing.

In order to amplify the efficiency of our post adoption services, we will be centralizing our reduced labor force towards more professional and urgent tasks headed towards new change for the future of this adoptive community. Our hope is to soon enough retain more budgets so that we can reestablish some of our lost services and extend our services even greater than before.

However for the time being, it is with regret that InKAS will be temporarily eliminating some our most favored services, such as: 

1.    BIRTH SEARCH

2.    Haircut Service

3.    Rental Phone Service

4.    Bank service

These services we have currently eliminated, are services that will now be attended at your own disposal.

InKAS recognizes that our most sought after services are the birth search requests. However, please understand that this service will be no longer offered. We will only assist you with translation services and counseling services needed for the reunion meeting.

InKAS is sorry to inform you of our unfavorable circumstance and we hope to assist you better in the near future.

Sincerely,

President Aie Ree Jung

2011 Global Korean Summer Camp "Korea Loves Us(KLU)"

A big run of 12 days from May 27th to June 7th, 2011, in Motherland

All the forty participants had a meaningful time through 2011 InKAS GK Summer Camp titled Korea Loves Us. We set foot on every corner of Korea starting from Seoul, to Jeju, Busan, Kyungju, Junju, and back to Seoul and experienced the past, the present and the future of our country, filling the every moment with clues(=KLU) about how much Korea loves us.

All the splendid time spent together was precious and important for all the adoptees in the camp to fulfill their dreams as Global Koreans.
