We introduce Hancock Park, a club we can call the star of the LA region. Hancock Park is one of the chapters from central Los Angeles and it’s also known as HCP. This club was formed by Hwarang Chairman with enthusiasm and leadership. Hancock park started small. Our club also had problems to be stated but with motivated leadership by the president and with the teamwork of parents and members they have overcome those crises and grew as they fix those problems. Present, Hancock park has unique and talented members. Penike is a team of 6 with rappers and a singer. In Youtube, their total views are 17,382 and counting. Penike creates a type of song that the members of the group like and represents the strength of highschool hip-hop. Also, there are different members of Nanta and Korean drum. The members also are part of a variety of communities such as art, dance, and medical. Hancock Park is also very demonstrative, we believe that one of the most important parts of the leadership is communication. We are one of the open-minded chapters, where we respect everyone and anyone is welcomed. We are very passionate and persevering members. Currently, all of our club members are bilingual and we love to help our community. Throughout the Hwarang events, we were able to confidently help people who are in the Korean-American community, such as keep our Koreatown, WCC painting, Korean Festival, etc. Not just the Korean-American community but we were able to help with our community in general. We participated in events like LA river cleanup, planting trees, eye camp, and vision concert. Hancock park will always try our best to be a muse to other clubs and each member will help to not misalign from the Hwarang mentality. And keep actively lead our volunteer events.
Hello. My name is Hyewon and I am a current president from Hancock Park. I joined Hwarang about 2 years ago and I’m honored to be a president of Hancock Park. I first joined Hwarang because I just needed volunteering hours but as I participated in Hwarang events, I felt proud of helping our community. I realized I can impact and influence the Korean-American community while volunteering for Hwarang events. While I participated in Hwarang events, I was able to make new friends and be more exposed to the community. I decided to be a president so that I can shape myself to be a leader that can influence Hancock Park members. I can say that I became more responsible and sociable person after joining Hwarang. Hwarang shaped me into a better leader and even in person.
