About me

If you’ve ever wanted to know who’s behind this blog, you have come to the right place!

My name is Eline and I have been learning Korean (very) on and off since 2012 and my stumbling into the world of kdramas and kpop. After learning 한굴 on my own, I alternated between short bouts of motivation to self-study and in-person classes at different institutions. My learning journey looks like this so far:

2012-2013 Beginner classes at Sejong Institute in Paris
2013-2015 vague self-studying
2015 1 semester of weekend low intermediate classes at SOAS in London
2016-2018 nothing, honestly
2018 2 months of intermediate classes at AAA in Paris
2018-2020 nothing, let’s be real
2020~ing renewed motivation (and time!) due to Covid-19 lockdown, starting to self-study daily, set goals and attend italki tutoring sessions twice a week

I am hoping this renewed motivation and this blog will continue into the future and that you may find my posts relatable, helpful or even funny? If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a comment.

For more basic info: I currently live in Paris, France where I work as a digital marketer and I was born in the lovely year of 1994.
