As we all transition from chilhood to adulthood, the feeling of security and naivety gradually fades away to the desire of new adventure and rashness. Perhaps that's why we are attracted to children as they almost always symbolize both assurance and the blunt truth. However, it's the precious span of time between both, that the human mind is most vulnerable and susceptible to change, whether that be for the better or the worse. In my eyes, I've always held South Korea, as a symbolic place of comfort despite never stepping foot in the country. As I grew up, it was this whimsical place that my sister told me about through both financial difficulties and mental heartaches. While traveling to this country will almost certainly damper my view, I believe the cultural shock will only encourage me to make a difference in both my native and host country. In fact, if I don't believe I'll be challenged, I'm wasting your time but I know that nonetheless of all the other factors, the cultural growth and advanced education is worth it on its own. Thank you for your time, and in the mean time, I shall countinue to try to make strides to my journey of the land of kpop.
