Waygook Confessions! 외국인 고백 입니다!

About Waygook Confessions

Waygook Confessions is an idea that Rachel had years ago, but it didn’t get made until Summer 2014! Here’s the concept: There are tons of cultural differences between Koreans and the foreigners who live in Korea. That’s the case with foreigners living in any country, right? Those differences make life as an expat interesting! Sometimes, an expat foreigner (or 외국 – waygook in Korean) adopts the cultural customs of their host country. Other times.. they don’t! It can be embarrassing when you don’t “do as the Roman’s do” – so sometimes we keep it a secret that we aren’t adhering to the social norms of our host country. Rachel wanted to make a video with people confessing those secrets! And here it is: Waygook Confessions – things that foreigners in Korea want to confess to Koreans!


Why the interest grew

 

I’ve never been really interested about my Korean background, so it’s still funny that I now am dedicating part of my life to create a network of kyopos all around the world.

When I went to Korea, I always found that native Koreans were fascinated and interested in my because my American accent was, well, American.  I never understood this awe they felt for me until I met a British-Korean for the first time.  It was jaw dropping.

My little brain couldn’t even comprehend what was going on, but something started inside of me and I wanted more of it.
