If you build it, they will come.

 

Hey guys,

The purpose of this website is to connect all the kyopos around the globe.  I want the Kyopos in the world to be aware that there are other Kyopos in other countries.  I would like to connect them to you !

I’ve been searching here and there all over the net world and have been connecting with other kyopos.

I’m not posting anything and everything I research but I have attached a link for Russians Koreans and one for Korean Americans on my home page that I thought might interest people.

There will be changes happening little by little so I am letting you know in advance.  If you’ve ever played Super Mario Brothers you’ve probably seen something like this:

Super-Mario-World-Map


It’s just THAT good.

 

After a long day’s work, all I want to do is eat something wholesome. Not chocolate or ice cream but actual food.

I remember coming home late at night and stuffing my face with a homemade sandwich like nobody’s business.

I’d be in the middle of this sandwich and milk, enjoying what a sandwich has to offer at 11pm at night, when I felt something was missing…

Like how Aussies love their vegemite and toast,


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.


A space for all

Hello,

I never really was into my Korean background at all.  I would’ve thought I’d make a website dedicated to kyopos but here we are.

During high school I wanted to have blue eyes, blond hair, and hated that I wasn’t born this way.  Throughout my life, I’ve been called Chinese, Japanese, or the typical ‘Asian’.  I hated being called asian, it almost sounded degrading; people would assume I played the piano well.  I played piano well because I practiced, but was quickly assured that it was because I was ‘asian’. Right.


춤과 나

원래 운동할 때마다, 춤을 꼭 추게 된다.

보통 뛰기를 하고, 다리 트레이닝도 하는데, 괜찮은 노래가 나오면, 춤을 추게 된다.

이 때가 제일 기쁘다.
추면서도, 다리, 팔 , 허리, 다 자세히 보면서 춘다.
나중에 미국에 가서 대학교에서 춤을 전공할 생각도 많이 한다.

원래 전공이 보존 생물학이었고, 환경을 너무 좋아하는 사람인데, 그만큼 춤도 너무 좋아한다.

한국에서 JYP 같은 곳에서 춤을 추는 것은 관심이 없다.

내 몸이 춤을 못 출 수 있을 때까지 출 것 같다.

Happy Hangul (한글) Day! From, Google

Today is Hangul Day or Hangul Proclamation Day. On this day in 1416, King Sejon the Great introduced and declared Hangul as Korea's official language. It used to be that Korean governmental workers had the day off, but with the desire to increase working days, the government ended it's status as "holiday" and switched it to a "commemorative day." Today is Sunday, anyway, but last year we missed out on a day off!
