It’s been 2 weeks since I’ve been away from home and I can’t believe how quickly time is slipping away just like that! My journey with Seoul, or rather, Kyung Hee University should technically be ending next Thursday, but thankfully, I decided to extend my trip for a week to further explore this place.
I thought I would be able to do weekly blogs to keep up with my thoughts and all the experiences I’ve had here but I’ve been absolutely way too busy (and also lazy, because I rather spend those little pockets of time watching BIG and Running Man instead)!!! I feel like it’s been so long and I can’t exactly remember what happened in the first week.
Having Korean lessons thrice a week for 4 hours a day is intensive but I’ve learnt quite a bit too. Really glad that the language is somewhat similar to Japanese as they tend to use certain joining words e.g. 이/가/을/를 vs は/を/に/へ. I also think that I’m having the lessons a little easier than some of my classmates as I learnt how to read, write and pronounce the different Korean words on my own. Glad that I can make sense of more phrases now! /excited ^^/
Sidenote: I’m also really happy that I get to use my Kakaotalk because we have to contact our dowoomis!
In just 2 weeks, I have tried so many kinds of food and I’m definitely not sick of Korean food yet, though I really do miss my grandma’s home-cooked food…. Asian cuisine is great but chinese food is definitely still the best! ㅜㅜ 중식을 좋아해요~ I also can’t believe how I managed to watch Davichi, G.Na and Juniel perform live!!!! Of course seeing BIGBANG/SHINee/SNSD would be really great but for now, having heard those 3 is still just as amazing!
I really do miss home but there’s still so much more I want to do here – to shop, eat, explore. Arghhh!
Ok, time to go and finish my last episode of BIG! Hopefully I get to see Gong Yoo on the streets…. ㅋㅋㅋ
