Finally, the agony of waiting has ended.
After months of torturous suspense, the KGSP/NIIED just released the 3rd selection results today. And it is an honor to announce that yours truly is one of the finalists. Different from what I’ve expected though, I wouldn’t be studying in Kangwon National U for my language course. Instead, KGSP assigned me at Jeonju University.
I was a bit disheartened. I wanted a new environment, and Jeonju? Well, I’ve visited this place already – thanks to Mr. Park, the director of CNU’s International Affairs Department. The place is great, especially the avenue where the Hanoks (Korean style houses) line up; however, I just had a little embarrassing moment right there.
To make the long story short, well… my friends and I mistakenly went inside a night club! You didn’t get the joke, right? Actually, night clubs are for the ajumma/ajohssi (aunts/uncles in their 40s) and where we were supposed to go was just a club! CLUB not NIGHT CLUB.
But, that’s just it. Jeonju, as I remember, is a peaceful city just like Gwangju and I wish I could meet and be friends with a lot of people there! So, fighting!
