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…)
If you’re anything like me, you absolutely love Christmas time! I might be guilty of listening to Christmas music in every season, and crave that first sip of egg nog that comes with the magical holiday.(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!
