Take Your Korean Fever to the Next Level

Annyeonghaseyo! The end of September is right around the corner, which means it is the season for all things Korean yet again! Cebuano Korean culture enthusiasts don’t need to travel far and wide to be able to experience the Korean culture — all you need to do is take a ride to SM City Cebu.
