On a square in Beijing's Wangjing Xiyuan, residents do exercise and chat with each other gladly.

"I come here every afternoon to do exercise and dance with my Chinese friends," a South Korean woman surnamed Kim from Seoul said in fluent Chinese, "I love living in China." Kim has lived in China for 10 years. She and her husband moved into a South Korean community in Wangjing Xiyuan district of Beijing two years ago, and now run a pickle shop.

"Beijing has changed greatly over the past two years," Kim said. Due to accelerated globalization, more and more South Koreans are moving to China for a nice life. "It is very convenient for living here. There are South Korean restaurants, convenience stores, clinic, and schools," Kim said happily.

When asked about "two sessions", the annual meetings of the National People's Congress and Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Kim said, “the two sessions is a major political event in China. I hope the Chinese government will pay more attention to consumer prices and environmental issues, so the living costs will fall, and the quality of our lives will further improve. A South Korean man who suffers from rush-hour congestion in Beijing hopes the municipal government can take effective measures to ease traffic congestion.

"Improving the people's living conditions and happiness index is crucial to improve the social management and service system. In the next few years, Wangjing district will improve management and service for foreigners, and integrate public service resources to provide more thoughtful services to local and foreign residents,” said Song Jun, head of the Wangjing district office.
