Do you like Korean food? If so, what's your favourite dish?

육개장 하고 김치 찌개. Of course, like everyone else, I like bulgogi and mandu.

How well do you speak Korean? If you're a Korean native speaker, how well do you speak English? (I know, kinda silly to ask in English, but this section does not recognize Unicode fonts :-()

I'm not fluent, but i can speak and understand conversations related to everyday living events reasonably well. Can't discuss politics, religion, economics, etc.

Have you ever been to Korea?

I was in the army in Korea in[masked]; stationed in 영등포. And, I went back for a visit in 1996. Spent 1 week each in Seoul and Pusan at that time. Did a lot of sightseeing in Kyongju too. While in the army I travelled a lot throughout the entire country -- even went to 제주도.

What sparked your interest in Korean language and culture?

Just got interested in the language while I was stationed in Korea so I could get around, meet people, and do some sightseeing on my own.


My name is Ron. I'm 76 and live in Frederick. Hope to get to one of the meetups one of these days. Sorry, but I don't have a photo nor a camera to take one.
