Friends,

Thanks You! It is our 3rd Year Anniversary of O'ngo Food Communications Culinary School. I can't believe we have how far we have gone in such a short time. 3 years ago we were taking apart our small studio cooking space and then moved to our new cooking school in Jongno 3-ga. We had to do most of the renovations and cleaning ourselves in our new space because we wanted to save money. That first August we opened I think we had like 10 bookings all month. LOL. I almost thought I had made a grave mistake. September got better and so was October and then December hit. In December, North Korea attached Yeonpyeong Island and then we lost all bookings for that month and it was slow to pickup for a while. Luckily we got some projects to promote Korean food, but that first year we really struggled.

After a while, we gained a strong reputation and our cooking classes and tours really picked up. Now we are one of the top things to do in the country and we have chefs that fly over from all over the world to take our cooking classes and tours.

Our company president, Jia Choi, has won numerous awards for her efforts in promoting Korean culture and we have won bigger projects throughout the years.

I am proud to have been part of building up this company and we have great plans for the future.

We would like to thank everyone for their support and I would like to thank all of our guests for joining us throughout the year.

As a thank you, we would like to give you all a fun comic that we developed.
