Korean adoptee from Minnesota.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being absolute beginner and 10 being native), how would you rate your Korean language abilities?

I am about a five, though my comprehension is much better than my speaking.

Why are you interested in learning or improving your Korean?

I studied Korean in college & even studied @ Korea University in Seoul. Being an adoptee, it's a tie to my cultural heritage & many of my Korean speaking friends back home & in Korea.

Have you ever been to Korea? Any Plans?

Twice. Last spring I went for about two weeks & in 2003 I studied there for spring & summer semester. Hoping to make travel there more consistent.

What's your favorite Korean TV drama? Movie? Musical group? (it's ok if you don't know ;)

Favorite movies would have to be Old Boy & Friend (Chingoo) & Thirst. Don't really have a favorite drama, though I have seen & own DaeJangGuem, The Great Queen Seondeok, & Jumong. Not really a fan of the music, though I occasionally listen to old albums from B Rain & Brown Eyes.

What are your hobbies?

No answer yet

    Hey David I didn't attend your sunglasses event since I saw it too late. Any chance I can get a discount on some shades?
