So I am 20 years old, going to study at Yonsei University in Seoul for at least a semester. I don’t speak any Korean or know much about the country though. I am mostly banking on the idea that everything will turn out okay.

I have studied abroad before, in Japan in Kagoshima-ken, and hopefully that experience will somehow lend itself to this, but probably not. So I am going to tell you what happens in Seoul when someone goes without knowing a thing…

Hello there,

i came upon to your blog so I read your story re staying in Seoul for your studying… It is kind of challenging if I were you.. I have visited Seoul for 4 times since 2007 for visiting friend / traveling and etc..

Anyway, just want to cheer you up no matter what you have to deal with from now on in Seoul…

Wish you all the best…

Sorry to do this in comments, but I didn’t see an email address…

My name is Roger Wellor (I found you on the Korean Blogger site) and I’m doing a study of the successes and failures of Korean International Tourism Marketing. I have a brief survey online that I invite you to take. It is designed to be answered by Korean/US bloggers and to give a slight outline of how these cross-cultural thinkers evaluate Korea’s International Marketing.

Your email will not be used for anything other than this survey (in fact it is not a required field in the survey) and if you have any questions, I can be contacted here at rwellor@spunangel.com.

Here is the link:


thank you,
