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.

I do not claim to provide an expert’s view on all topics and am always learning. But when I do write, I try to source my information from credible journals or newspapers or by directly talking to Koreans. As I do not make money from my writing and I have a job and degree to complete, I cannot always 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 I sometimes find here.
