I've always wanted to go to korea, but like the other anon, my parents worry about the racism... I know they might have blown it out of proportion also, but i'd like to hear it from you also^^
korea is just still new to the idea of foreign people living here
i mean, it’s not like the states where the country is built on people coming from all parts of the world… there hasn’t been a comparable amount of cultural diffusion in south korea to expect that people wont treat you differently because you aren’t korean how~ever people let me sit alone on the bus so i don’t mind LOL
people are usually nice to me or they leave me alone but that makes sense if they don’t speak english or aren’t confident in english yanno???
the only time i get rude treatment occasionally is at clubs but i mean
it’s a club you’re gonna get rude treatment in any country lol
I really wanna go to Korea but my mom thinks it's unsafe, Like I understand everywhere you have to worry if it's safe or not. But she thinks that when you arrive at Korea, you'll be dead and all the attacks from North Korea and that one day they will blow up SK. What should I say to her? Cause I wanna go and maybe possibly live there one day.
i have literally never heard a person who has lived here for a long time even talk about north korea outside of a historical academic context
occasionally my foreign teachers will jokingly say “did you hear, CNN thinks we’re all going to die again..” but it’s never anything more than that
the western world has a bad habit of blowing things out of proportion to make people upset i guess ^^’
about the college and that stuff, I'm from Canada and I don't know where you are from originally but in Canada 80% is an A- so if your average was 80 or higher will you get accept into Korean college and UNI and what if you don't know Korean?
i have no idea, at least where i go, they never released their standards for accepting or rejecting people ~ and again it depends! my uni offers classes to teach korean but my classes are in english, some unis offer classes in english but you have to pay extra to take the korean language class.
I was on mingteukies and asked about how you study overseas and the grades and everything and she said to ask you so: How can you go to college/uni in Korea and what grades do you need and everything?
well sugar it is very simple!: get good grades at home, apply for uni, and cross ya fingers that they accept you! at least, that is what i did. be prepared tho cos i know a lot of the kli and exchange students say studying here is sooo easy but for one, often they get out of te relative grading system real students are subjected to, and two… i was first in my class, grades wise, and i dont think im an ignorant girl, and…. IT IS DEFINITELY NOT EASY lol. be prepared to wake up early, fight for grades, and get 90% of your sleep on public transportation.
also…i think it is important that if u come to actual uni for a long term u come with the mindset that you arent gonna be chasing kpop idols… cos there are students trying to come here that care about more important things, and atleast from my knowledge, ppl will take longer to take you seriously in general bc of it. i barely pop in on my blog anymore, just ask my long time followers haha. a lot of kli and exchange students come only for idol chase and even if its not all of them, theres already a bad reputation and actual students, even international like me, dont really make friends w them. i have a school jacket without my year and department on it and i actually stopped wearing it bc i was annoyed at people asking if im exchange ㅋㅋㅋ
dont get me wrong, you cans till like kpop! my friends know about yeye and everything. but you need to know that it is one of the least important things in these very important years and you shouldnt waste your time and money on it when there is sooo many other things to do and experience, and there are so many others who would love to be in your place.
midterms start next week and im already thinking of how many hours of sleep i will have to sacrifice to make study guides ㅋㅋㅋ
hi nova you know me but i wont reveal myself just now lmao cause im still antisocial whatever -irrelevat reasons- but i think im just like you when it comes to relationships i mean.. i dont want to /waste/ time with someone i dont love at first like..i want to find my true love? you know haha i feel like this towards someone >W< but im too shy and awkward what to do .-.
nah it’s cool you don’t have to for you to talk to me ~ ^..^
yeah exactly i mean!!!!! there have been plenty of times there was a somewhat-maybe-good-looking guy that wanted to get into my pants and i certainly could have accepted the offer and things would go from there BUT
my ~prince charming~ is not someone who doesn’t want to get to know me before they decide they like me n___n so i don’t mind… being single longer than anyone else, cos i’ve waited this long, and my standards aren’t THAT ridiculous… i feel like my self value is at a level where i think im great enough that if someone is going to be a part of my life they’d better earn it the right way huhuhu~
dw dw we aren’t dying tomorrow so there’s time for miracles to come~
people like you are one of my fave types of people (uhurrm i just read your answer to why yeye was ur 'sweetie'). p.s I JSUT REALIZED THAT WAS HEECHUL ON UR BG????!!!?!?! like when i first saw it (when u posted cats lol) i thought it was just a random kissing scene of japanese actors???????? i thought it was a girl....OTL
LMFAO YEAH THAT WAS HEECHUL i just changed it tho it was only supposed to be like that for april fools hahaha omg
Hi.. May I know why you said yesung is your sweetie? I've seen your real pic and wow you're pretty. You must have seen a lot more beautiful ppl in real life and mustn't be hard for you to get one of those ㅋㅋ. So.. Why yesung? Don't get me wrong, yesung is my sweetie too.. For some reasons.. But I'm also curious abt your reason ^^ Thanks for answering ^^
awww anon you are so cute ;///; well to be honest, i’ve only been single *cough* for my ENTIRE life… but let’s pray i don’t turn 22 without that having changed haha ~
whyy yesung… i haven;t been asked this in such a while… am i even allowed to answer such a thing now that i’ve been awol from fandom…ㅋㅋㅋ
yeye is just the only consistent happiness in my life for the past four years ^^ i love him as much as i always did ~ he is kind and his sense of humor is the best and he is frank about what he thinks. he is a little weird but i think a lot of that has to do with him trying to find a niche in his first couple years as a kpop idol. and of course his voice is just… the more gorgeous sound i’ve ever heard coming from a person ^..^~ he is earnestly my favorite singer.
overall though his heart is what keeps me from renouncing him as my bias (altho if it’s not him then it’s no one haha). he cares so much about his family and pleasing his fans and gets really touched when people make the effort to do nice things for him (IE jung juri making cute events for him on love chaser - he was almost crying at one point huh TT TT).
and just personally he……..recognized me after i hadn’t seen him in three months, and got a whole haircut-and-dye and everything!!! and he still knew my order at mobit >////< he’s never been terse or annoyed at me stumbling over words when talking to him, although i know he must have some subconscious idea that im probably another fan in korea just to see him (which is nottt my case ok js) for the past year or so since i first went to mobit. like i know if i saw someone often enough i’d stop making an effort to smile at them every time, u know? but he still smiles and lets me get flustered OTL
he’s just a really inherently nice person i think and i never stop wanting the best in the world for him ;____ ;
you all deserve someone who isnt embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, good and bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you. i hope you all find that!!
