I am a gyopo/교포 wife living in Seoul. I left Los Angeles to start a new life with my film professor husband.  Here you’ll get to see what I learned, what I did, what I noticed and more. Occasionally there will be baby talk since we have a son and another on the way.

    My friend Jenna stumbled across your blog and introduced me to it. She is helping to educate me on Korean culture. I’m a teacher with plans to come to South Korea next year to teach English. Your blog has been the most informative I have yet to read. You have such an amazing sense of humor. I hope that you will be open to communicating with me. 🙂

    I stumbled across your blog as I am also a gyopo from LA that recently moved to Korea. However, I am also a new mom to a 9 month old… if you know of other new foreign moms in Korea that are open to communicating, please advise.

    I saw the phrase about korean’s mask.

    but, I want to tell you Korean usually wear mask for exercising to protect sunset. you know like sunscreen.<> most of user of mask is for old man or old woman and mid-woman . ’cause they have many interests for health. that’s why they always take jogging in morning. I think I have a problem with a English_ the language. but I’m sorry about that.

  16. Hello. First of all – great blog! Secondly this article was also good and interesting to read, but I don’t think everything you have said is completely true. I will need to google about few things you have mentioned in your artcile to make sure. But anyway thanks for trying and good luck on writing other articles. P.S sorry for bad English, I aren’t English native speaker.

  17. I feel like you could probably teach a class on how to make a great blog. This is fantastic! I have to say, what really got me was your design. You certainly know how to make your blog more than just a rant about an issue. Youve made it possible for people to connect. Good for you, because not that many people know what theyre doing.
