While I usually try to keep this website fun and light-hearted, it’s hard to ignore the current situation on the Korean peninsula. As the Coronavirus continues to sweep through the country, I’ve received multiple messages asking about the situation on the ground, and what will happen next.(more…)

Let’s face it. If you’re a dog owner in Seoul, you’re going to have a hard time finding places that will accommodate your four-legged friend. Sure, there are dog friendly cafes, and a few parks – but in general, it’s difficult to find hotels that will allow you to bring your pets with you.(more…)
Winters in Korea can be brutal. As someone who grew up near Chicago, snow and cold temperatures are nothing new to me. However, winters in Korea just seem extra difficult, extra long, and extra depressing.(more…)

On June 23, Korea faced Mexico in the World Cup. While Mexico ultimately beat Korea, those of us in Seoul still had a great time cheering the team on.
I was invited to an event with other foreign residents. It was sponsored by #iseoulu and was held in Seoul Plaza.
Those who attended were given free gifts including a t-shirt, tumbler, and an interesting head band thingy.
The event started with various K-Pop cover groups dancing to popular songs. Most of the groups were actually from abroad. I assume they were flown to Korea to perform for this event.
There were both boy and girl groups. Everyone was quite impressive and energetic. It was easy to see that they are passionate about K-Pop.
After that, we were treated to a performance by the group KARD. They performed two of their hit songs before leaving. If you’d like to see their performance, see the video above.
After that concert, I headed over to Megan Bowen’s meet and greet. I have watched her video for years, and it was fun chatting with her for a few moments.
Overall, it was a long but fun day! Although Korea lost the World Cup match, I still had a great time watching the 2018 K-Pop cover dance festival, KARD, and meeting Megan Bowen!
