We, Spectrum, is one of the clubs in Hwarang that represents Southern California region, specifically but not limited to Irvine, Aliso Viejo, and Mission Viejo. We strive to make our local community better through park clean-ups, and garage sale. We also work to spread our Korean Culture by teaching Korean and activities that correspond to our goal. While doing so, we help blind kids once every 2 weeks. We go beyond our own community and sometimes get involved in bigger events such as Vision Concerts, a concert for people who are blind. We provide funds to hold the concert and giveaway the money earned through the concert. Our club will continue to work for our love for the country, community and the people, and always will focus on the development leadership of the individual.

Hello my name is Jonathan Hwang. I am the president of the Spectrum chapter. I joined Hwarang through a church friend, and I have not regretted joining since then. My most memorable experience with Hwarang is Hwarang day because it was like a picnic where our members were able to bond with each other. I was able to meet and get close to a lot of great people through Hwarang. A lot of the seniors from last year were very caring to me like real brothers and sisters, so I’d hope that I can do the same for the upcoming students. I was able to make new friends who were able to help me make more responsible choices throughout high school, and anyone thinking about joining should because they will be making so many memories that they will never forget with the people they meet here. Especially when our OC members head to LA for an event or a summit meeting, you’ll get really close with them and form a bond which will ultimately lead to continuing this relationship outside of the program. Being able to form a relationship with people is so important in our program because each member will be more willing to attend events rather than having to feel forced to attend. That is the ultimate goal of our program: we hope to create young men and women to willingly help the community rather than feel forced. I’d hope to make this year at Hwarang a fun and memorable year.
