Pinoy sa Korea: Alert Level 1
Two more civilians were found dead early this morning in Yeonpyeongdo. Today we went to work as usual but some of my middle schoolers couldn’t concentrate on their lesson. They preferred to talk about what happened yesterday and what could happen in the future. I was a little surprised to hear my students say that they like the Japanese more than the North Koreans now.
The Philippine Embassy in Seoul, has activated contingency Alert Level 1, or heightened alert. However, the Philippine government has not issued a travel advisory on South Korea. Only Taiwan so far has issued a gray travel alert, which is the lowest on their four-level scale.
The Philippine Embassy also has posted an advisory for Filipinos living in South Korea on their website.
There are more than 50,000 Filipinos in South Korea while nine Pinoys are in North Korea. Be safe guys and check the Philippine Embassy – Seoul website from time to time for announcements.
