Hi! I’m Liv, a 23-year-old Korean major student from the UK.
I first visited Korea in spring 2014, during which I spent three months living and working at a hostel in Seoul. Following this, I returned for a 10 day trip that November, when I ventured outside of the city for the first time. I spent summer 2015 back at my friends’ hostel, before finding an apartment and beginning my Korean language course at the wonderful Korea University, where I studied for a year.
My time spent in Korea has brought with it some ridiculous and wonderful things – from performing as a backing dancer for Kim Yeong-cheol at a Kpop festival in front of thousands, spending a weekend with an MBC camera crew to promote travel for foreigners outside of Seoul, and even recording promotions for MAMA, the world’s biggest Kpop music awards. Every time one of these crazy events occurred, I thought that surely it would be the last, but they just kept on coming – and of course, I kept saying yes.
As of 2017, I am primarily based in London while I finish my degree. After my graduation in 2018, who knows! Hopefully the future will bring with it plenty of opportunities to spend more time in my favourite country.
