What was your worst movie?And why?


My worst movie is Conjuring 2 because I personally don't like horror movies. First of all, the plot was not dramatic at all. The conflicts did not have ups and downs. Also, even though the movie was based on a real story, it seemed like it was exaggerated. If I was James Wan, I wouldn't produce the another series of Conjuring.

The Value of Cross Country



"Well, usually I thought Cross Country was a sport that didn't require a lot, but coming into it in my middle school and high school years, it required a lot of effort because we had to run 5K all the way to Namsan or Gyeongnidan gil. I remember all those moments, even though it was really tiring, I remember just being with my team - we were really supporting each other - that helped me and I don't regret anything"

2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro


The 2016 Summer Olympics is being held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and there have been ups and downs as the Olympics events continue. Before the Olympics started, most of the stadiums and the accommodations were not even prepared for the players who are competing in the Olympics. Luckily, the stadiums were nearly finished, but the accommodations weren’t prepared to hold the players and staff because it wasn’t finished yet. So, there were huge complaints coming from everywhere from players saying that the quality of the accommodations were the worst. But on the bright side, the pass Olympic games held were just fabulous. Archery, soccer, volleyball, and most of the events were successful. People, and also I, enjoyed it and are stilling enjoying the Rio Olympics. I wish for the Olympics to have a successful finale.

Vacation to Sokcho


Screaming and yelping, people were running around the lake. I paused and thought to myself 'Are they crazy or what?' Then I glanced at my brother, who was already a part of the excited crowd.

On this vacation, I visited Sokcho (other wise known as the ONLY place where POKEMON GO works in Korea).

Due to the popularity of the game, Sokcho was crowded with early adapters (people following trends), teenagers and adults. 

I couldn't resist the heat of the game so I gave it a shot. 

My Verdict: 

+ I wanted to give an applause to the game creators. Collaboration with 3D characters and reality was a sensational idea and the process of finding Pok√©mon was really interesting, too!
- On the other hand, there were groups of young friends that kept bumping into other pedestrians. People stared at them. As a result, I am worried about future problems such as public disturbances that happened today. I hope there are solutions for these kind of situations. Unless this gets fixed, I think it is a matter of time before more trouble happens :/
