ISEP is deeply saddened by the deaths that occurred during the Halloween festivities in the Itaewon district of Seoul early in the morning of Sunday, October 30. Our hearts go out to the city of Seoul, and we offer our condolences to all affected by this incident.
We have confirmed that all ISEP students in South Korea are safe, and have notified home and host coordinators. We are very grateful for the quick responses from our students. Many thanks to our Seoul-based team member, ISEP coordinators, and health and safety team for their time and assistance during this emergency.
To our ISEP students, please let us know if we can provide additional support or mental health resources.
We will continue to monitor this situation and will provide more information if required.
