As a Korean that was born and raised in America, it wasn’t uncommon for me to run into weird experiences like this one. I’ll try not to do these too often, but I figure it would be interesting (or at least funny) to show some of the more awkward phases of growing up as a Korean kid in a world that barely even knew what Korea was (my neighborhood had very few Asians).

Junggang Street Art

If you're ever around the 40 steps area of Busan it'd be well worth coming to explore the side streets of our school. At the start of October they had a street art festival where lots of different artists were given a space to be creative.

Flies That Tweet and Computer Operated Artists

I won't try to pretend that I'm an art enthusiast.  I'm not.  Sure, I enjoy going to museums and looking at paintings and sculptures and photographs, but I've always been the type of person that is entertained by these types of art rather than moved or inspired by them.  I wish I could say that a splatter of paint is enough to make me contemplate the complexities of life, but it isn't.  Which is why I was incredibly surprised to find myself deep in thought at the Spell On You exhibit at the Seoul Museum of Art this past weekend.
