  • Day 1 at Colorful Daegu: National Museum, Apsan Park & Suseong Lake

    Hello everyone! Hope you guys are having a wonderful week and people living in South Korea, hope you had a great Chuseok vacation! This year during Chuseok, my husband and I decided to go to Daegu, a city that is really close to Busan. We stayed there for two days and one night. For today I will write about day 1, and I promise day 2 is coming soon!

    So in day 1, we went to Daegu National Museum first. It is a brick built two storied building. According to wikipedia it was first opened in 1994. There are different halls in the museum, however it has three main halls, the ancient culture hall, the medieval culture hall & clothing culture hall. The museum is quite big so make sure you have enough time in your hand.

  • How to Become Fluent in Korean (with Sofie)

    Many people have learned Korean to a fluent level, but it's still rare. So I was thrilled when I found another person I could chat with - Sofie.

    Sofie became fluent in Korean at a rapid rate, through self-studying, in just a few years. So my goal of meeting with her was to ask, "How did you become fluent?" She shared with me some of the methods she used when she was studying, and how her learning methods may be different from what others are doing (or not doing) when studying Korean. I also shared some of my own experiences learning Korean, and we talked about what it means to be "fluent" in a language.

  • Korean FAQ – Guys Can Have 오빠s Too?

    Most people learn the words 오빠, 언니, 형, and 누나 during the low-beginner level, or even before they've begun properly learning Korean. They can be used to refer to your older siblings (older brother, older sister). However, whether you're a boy referring to your older brother or sister, or if you're a girl referring to your older brother or sister, you'll have to use a different word.

    But that doesn't mean that males can't also say 오빠 and 언니, or that females can't say 형 and 누나. Never heard of this before? Find out here.

  • Quitting your job in Korea (A little known loophole with your E-2 visa)

    I am not advising that you do this and this is not for everyone, but I am just telling it like it is. If you are considering quitting your job or if you have been fired from your job teaching English in Korea then you have a few options.

    If you are trying to quit your job and would like to transfer to another job then you will probably need a letter of release from your employer.

    But I am not going to go into that with this post. You can read more about that here.

    In this post I am just going to tell you about the loophole. 

    Here it is.


  • Po Tid: Harry Potter Themed Cafe in Busan

    Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I think you can understand what will be the content of my blog today reading the title! But I have a surprise for you and that is, I made a whole video about my experience of visiting this wonderful cafe! This is a must visit place in Busan for Harry Potter fans. Although I heard during the weekend the place is super crowded, but we were really lucky and managed us a table. Check my full vlog for details!

  • What Do Koreans Think of Foreigners Who Speak Korean?

    You're studying Korean, right? What do Koreans think about you? I wanted to ask them how Koreans feel when they hear you're trying to learn their language - whether you can speak it or not.

    I filmed a series of interviews this summer in Korea, and asked several questions to people. I've since been compiling them into separate videos, and there are about 2 more left for this series. Next year I'll go again and film some more. Speaking of which, is there somewhere you'd like me to go to film my next series of interviews? I've done the past 2 at 광화문 (that's why everyone's wearing 한복s), and I've done one in 홍대.

    Enjoy the video!

  • How To Say ‘Color’ In Korean

    Everywhere we look, we see color. Every item of clothing we wear, all the food we eat, each and every piece of furniture in our homes, all of it comes in a color of some sort. It’s interesting, isn’t it? Since it’s also something we don’t always consciously consider.

    Our lesson today outlines how to say color in Korean. We will also introduce you to what some of the basic colors translate to in the Korean language. Although a seemingly never ending list of shades to each color exists, just knowing these basic colors in Korean is an impressive skill. Let’s get learning!

  • Korean FAQ – Object Marker for Locations (학교에 가다 vs 학교를 가다)

    Here's a topic I don't see discussed much - when and how can the Object Marker (을/를) be used with locations?

    We all know how the particles 에 or (으)로 are normally used to show where motion is going, and can mean "to." But did you know that the Object Marker can also have a similar usage? It does... but only in certain cases. While I don't recommend using the Object Marker to mark your locations when speaking Korean, there are a few cases where it's accepted and even common, and I'll show some of those in this video.

    Since switching to two video uploads per week, I created this "Korean FAQ" series to be posted once a week as an additional supplement to your regular Korean studies. In the future I'd like to introduce more types of videos to upload each week, for more variety.
