It’s been ages. Really. I’ve started a new job – in human rights, turned down the PhD offer from Edinburgh due to funding issues (the UK is very, very stingy on non-UK funding), and started taking classical singing, drums and modern dance lessons.
This year I’m hoping to revamp Real Koreans, and to continue writing about Korea, but to also write more about me in general, and about my life as part of the Korean diaspora. I’ll also be submitting a co-authored article on South Korean feminism and gender (in)equality to an academic journal – Exciting!
This year, I’ll be travelling to (for work and fun)
- Austin, Texas
- Berlin, Germany
- Cologne, Germany
- Oslo, Norway
- Reykjavik and elsewhere in Iceland
- Seoul, South Korea
- Taipei, Taiwan
- The Hague, The Netherlands
- Somewhere in Poland
- And maybe to South India
Otherwise, I hope you’ve had a Happy Independence Day (if you’re in Korea, and a very happy Karneval (if you’re near the Niederrhein). Cheers!
Hope to greet you in Hanoi, Vietnam some times. I have long followed your blog and it was more than awesome. Look forward to your posts in the future.
Hi sisters! What a wonderful blog you have. I am definitely binge-reading this weekend. My mother attended Ewha and I think such environments can empower women and build strong solidarity in patriarchal societies, like South Korea and Vietnam. Looking forward to your new posts as well! Feminists unite!
