Korean university - JBNU review
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

University’s overall service is good. The staffs are really nice and helpful. The only problem is that my Korean skill is not good so when I study Korean class it’s hard for more to understand the subject. Besides, this school’s focus is not on art so the facilities are bad (for art only). Our school has 2 or 3 campuses ( I don’t remember), Jeonju campus is in downtown...
