Sam Okyere, a TV personality from Ghana, speaks fluent Korean on talk shows and other programs. But getting used to life in Korea was far from easy for him.
During his early days in Korea, he said he struggled with the language and an unfamiliar culture on many levels. What helped him learn Korean and decide to live permanently in the country, Okyere said, was the Immigration & Social Integration Network (Soci-Net), a program run by the Ministry of Justice.
Thanks to the information available on the website as well as hard studying of the language, he made a name for himself in the Korean entertainment industry. Whenever newcomers to Korea ask Okyere for advice, he recommends that they visit Soci-Net.
