Participants were divided into 3 groups- they visited different tourist spots around Seoul to shoot for sources including interviews. The participants took part in medical tests to experience the power of Korean medical industry and produced news reports on it as well. Others paid a visit to popular tourist attractions such as Myung-dong and DDP, where they were able to interview foreign tourists on the spot to be included in their report. 

This provided a hands-on Mojo production experience where they took part in the shooting, editing and producing their very own news reports. 

Overall, it was a successful and fruitful workshop.
