    5 Awesome Facts About South Korea

    South Korea is a pretty awesome place. It has survived Japanese colonization, Soviet meddling and North Korean threats to become the world’s 12th-largest trading nation. South Korea produces the LG TVs, Hyundai cars and Samsung phones we use every day. K-Pop stars are taking over the world one YouTube video at a time and their films are receiving worldwide acclaim. However, there’s a lot more to South Korea than technology and Gangnam Style. Blood Type In South Korea, blood is a big deal. It doesn’t just deliver oxygen to the rest of your body—it determines your personality. People in South Korea are automatically stereotyped thanks to their blood type. There are positive and…

    It’s starting to get chilly everywhere and that’s the perfect weather or time to wear sweaters!! Normally some wear sweaters alone or over tank tops and some wear vests on top of sweaters but there’s this trend I’ve been seeing where it’s kind of preppy in a way but you wear collared shirts under sweaters and over other things.

    [Review] Elizavecca, Hell Pore Clean Up Mask

    I’ll be honest, the reason I wanted to try this is that I watched Tati’s video and seeing her tear up trying to peel this off sort of made me laugh. I’ve had experience using peel-off masks before (along with nose strips) and they generally don’t hurt me much. They also don’t usually remove blackheads from my pores either, so I mostly use them for a bit of fun and just general pore cleaning. For Elizavecca’s Hell Pore Clean Up Mask though, the product had been hyped so much and there are so many (way overly faked) screaming videos of people peeling it off, that I just had to try it out for…

Today I’m talking about another Korean product for skincare that I wanted to try for a long time and that has always intrigued me for its particularity: Elizavecca’s Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask.

It’s like a traditional clay mask that works to draw out impurities and clarify your skin. But wait – there’s an added bonus! The carbonated bubbles “massage” your pores and help the clay go even deeper to remove black heads and dirt. The key ingredients…

    Korean Ramen

    Difficulty: easy Duration: 10 minutes Low cost It is not the healthiest dish in the world, but surely the instant ramen is one of the fastest meals to make in Korean cuisine. In Italy, generally, the ramen is prepared by boiling the water, adding the sauce for the broth and then the noodles; in Korea things are a bit different because there are more ingredients that make the dish really tasty! (And even less healthy!) Ingredients 1 pack of instant ramen;2 cups of water;green onions;1 egg. Preparation Chop finely the green onions to use later as a dish seal.Pour the two cups of water in a pot, turn on the…

    How To Improve Your Korean Handwriting

    As beginners in learning Korean and their alphabet 한글, a lot of us struggle with the curse of blocky handwriting. There's no shame in it though, all of us have it at one point - even native Koreans! This is most probably due to the block structure of the writing system. However, as in any language - the more we practice the more we get lazy with our handwriting and we also adopt the letters to fit our writing flow better!

    Songs About Mental Illness

    WARNING:  This is a sensitive topic, if you feel bad, please do not read! “Sometimes I’m afraid of myself too, from the self-disgust coming to play again. Min Yoongi is already dead (I killed him)” In The Last, Yoongi talks about his mental disorders which were severe enough to lead him to see a psychiatrist. Yoongi’s early life has been filled with pain and hardship, but right now, he has well-deservedly reaped the rewards for his pain. Min Yoongi continues to be one of the most respected members in the Kpop community and is one of my biggest role models. The lyrics are real and amazing. Angry when it needs to…
