An opportunity for geeking out is always welcome. Thanks to the Ateneo Korean Studies Program (Ateneo KSP) for providing me one. Last 24 August 2018, I gave a 30-minute lecture titled “Spellbound on the Slippery Structure of Korean Films” to students from various schools and other guests who are interested in Korea. I’ve liked Pablo […]

I’ve only been using HelloTalk for around 2 weeks, but I have already learned so much from Korean native speakers!

January 13, 2018

My full-time job as a Korean language internet researcher seems to put my Korean reading comprehension skills on the road to improvement as it puts food on my table. When I was still learning Korean at Yonsei University, I’d secretly flinch at the sight of a white page filled with hangeul (한글), the Korean alphabet. But […]

Just a quick update. I saw Han Kang’s book “Human Acts” at Fully Booked bookstore around two weeks ago. Can’t wait to get my hands on it. Surprised that it’s actually available in the Philippines… and cheaper than buying at Kindle, too! Why am I excited to read this? Because I just saw the Korean […]
