Real Koreans

I created this blog to write about Korea – the old, the new, the shocking, the surprising, the beautiful, and everything in between. As both an insider and outsider to South Korea, I try to understand why things are the way they are.

Since moving to France in 2014, then to Belgium, (Germany), and the Netherlands, and starting my research during my Master’s degree, my posts will also reflect my experiences as a Korean woman living in Europe, and my academic research.

I do not claim to provide an expert’s view on all topics and am always learning. But when I do write, I source my information from credible journals or newspapers and/or by directly talking to people involved. As I do not make money from my writing and I have a job and degree to complete, I do not publish regularly. To stay tuned, please subscribe to my blog and you will be updated of any new posts.

All comments are approved manually before they’re published. This is due to a torrential amount of trolls, circular arguments and profanity on some topics.
