“Jeju has such fresh air, it cannot be compared to the Czech Republic.”

Michal Kraus is the only foreigner who splashed into Korea to join 100 volunteers for the Wind Ensemble Festival. He came to Jeju on Aug. 5 and helped out for the Brass Competition at NLCS. He was impressed by the nature, food and weather of Jeju.

“I ate kimchi but it was too spicy. Normally, I don’t eat spicy food, but when I eat here, it’s so good. The weather is particularly clear. The temperature is high, but I don’t sweat that much.”

Watching Korean singing or entertainment programs is his daily routine, and he has a Master’s Degree from Comenius University. His thesis was about the Korean Wave, and he can communicate in Korean.

“A friend of my father is in the jury for the Brass Competition so I came to Korea for the first time”, he said. “Volunteering was so busy that I couldn’t tour around Jeju,” he joked.

“I’m going to participate in the Wind Ensemble every year. I’ll experience the attractiveness of Jeju bit by bit.”

He wants to work in the media and he stressed that he would like to promote the Wind Ensemble to his parents and friends. “I’ll explain that the festival is a feast of wind ensemble in the beautiful nature and fresh air island of Jeju. I’m sure it will be springboard for the Korean wave.”
