Have you been to Korea?

Yes. I studied abroad as Soonchunhyang University in Shinchang, South Korea in Spring 2011. I traveled extensively throughout the country and would like to return in the future.

Do you watch Korean Drama or listen/sing Korean songs?

Yes. I have watched many korean dramas and I do have some favorite KPOP groups that I follow, such as Big Bang and 2NE1. I am a casual kdrama watcher and kpop listener. I enjoy sageuk and romantic comedy dramas and became very interested in Korea, outside of Korean history, from watching dramas.

Do you have a favorite Korean dish you like to eat?

My favorite dish is kkongchijiggae (꽁치찌개), which is really hard to find outside of Korea. I am a huge fan of stews, various kimchi, dried seasoned squid (오징어채 무침) and much much more. Essentially if it is edible, no matter where in the world it is from, I am a huge fan. I cook and use Korean ingredients on a regular basis, and my fridge is not my fridge without kimchi in it. I would love to meet other people who share a passion for korean food.

What types of activities are you interested in for meetups?

Language learning of course, but also cooking, going to various museums, and also I am a huge fan of soccer. I have been playing for almost 20 years and if any other members would like to meet-up to play, I would be honored if I could join.

Introduction

Howdy! My name is Alison and I am a recent graduate of Texas A&M University. I studied abroad in South Korea at Soonchunhyang University in Spring 2011 and would like to further improve my Korean language skills.
