ABOUT US

Indians in Korea (IIK) community started since 2002, is a non-profit organization with over 4000 members which mainly includes Indians living in Korea and Koreans who are interested in India or Indian community. This group primarily includes engineering professionals, business persons, research fellows, students and housewives. IIK upholds India’s umbrella of Unity in Diversity and intends to make Indians feel at home and interact freely in Korea. Regardless of religion, region, culture and language, doors of IIK are open for every Indian. With the help of our lively discussion in group, meetings, get together parties, socio-cultural activities and the best helping hands by each of the members in the group, IIK wishes to provide every individual an open communication platform to share experiences, social knowledge and simultaneously a feeling of togetherness. We are proud to be Indian ever since the significance of being an Indian is known to every individual. We, in Korea, are for work, education, name and fame of our country as well as our own. Any differentiation, disintegration towards the great India must be kept at bay. Keeping in mind to raise our country's name and fame as well as our own, we should help each other and make our stay more comfortable in Korea.
