Uijeongbu, which once bustled with multiple US military bases, is now a bustling satellite city of Seoul.
ICSU, NICS’ first school, began as Liberty Christian School in 1983. There are parks, river walks, hiking trails, and public use areas that create a high quality of living. Organized public transportation, clean and landscaped cities, friendly people, and the fastest nationwide Internet in the world, all make South Korea a highly desirable place to live.
