(1) If you have a day without plans, set off to explore parts of Jeju that haven’t been developed yet – either on foot or on a scooter. The Olle Trails are a great way to start, but there are loads of other pathways and riverbeds to wander along.
(2) Try to learn Korean. It’s absolutely worth your while
(3) Come play at Furey events!!
Gazillions! Number one might be that friendship has little to do with timelines. That people move in and out of this community very quickly, but the friendships I've made and seen here run deep.
Plus no one stops to think about how soon someone's leaving before inviting him/her to join an activity or trying to reach out and make a new connection.
It doesn't matter how long you have known or will know an individual - it only matters that you'd like (or at least wouldn't begrudge) their company

to express my gratitude; to help the Furey families; to keep these events coming; to help Furey grow; to work with all the amazing volunteers; to learn...there too many reasons!
It unites people through fun events that aim to help families in need. What’s not to like?
