Teachers Share their Experiences While Living Abroad!
When people conjure up thoughts of Korea, many people assume that Korea is all about its Kpop music and soju drinking lifestyle. However, the one reason why I enjoy living in Korea is because there is something for everyone. If you enjoy outdoor activities to nightlife partying, Korea has something for you. But one thing you must know is that Korea is a very trendy place. Top trends in 2015 included honey butter chips, multi-colored hair, and flavored soju. So for in 2016 one of the top new trends is the up and coming art scene and one the best displays of this at the D Museum.

While living and teaching in Korea these last three weeks, I've been invited to two Korean weddings. I was first invited as a plus one by a fellow English teacher, and my second invitation came from my Korean friend, but with the request to bring 1-2 other English speakers. This was so I wouldn't be completely without someone to talk to; the other wedding guests did not speak much English. My friend and I were met with open arms regardless of the language barrier however, because for Korean weddings, it's a sort of tradition that the more people who attend your wedding, the better luck you will have in your future.
After seeing the first snow fall in Seoul and experiencing Christmas in Seoul last year, I am starting to have those hatred-filled moments at all the couples passing by. It's more of a moment of jealousy and being away from home, but nonetheless, I am happy for those who are able to have a special someone to share this holiday with.

Christmas in Korea is a holiday for the couples, not for family. In fact, many single guys and girls start going crazy and try to find that potential dating partner starting in autumn because they do not want to be alone for the Christmas holiday. Most gun to have their special 100th day to land on Christmas day (this 100th day is equivalent to the our 1 month or 1 year celebration). The big day of confession is Septemer 17th which is more popular among the younger age group, but it is still something special.
