My name is Jung. I started this blog in 2010 as an outlet to practice writing. It’s still nominally an “anything goes” blog, but much of my writing revolves around K-pop and the broader Korean music scene.
I started writing for Hellokpop as a reviews specialist in 2011 and continue to be active there. You can check out my album reviews and year-end compilations here, and an index of reviews on this page. My writing has also been featured in Just Seoul magazine (1, 2) and the Borneo Post (1, 2), as well as quoted in Wired. I have also penned annual guest posts for the Indieful ROK blog for a few years.
There’s a lot of other things I’d like to write about – football, academic and everyday economics, and faith, for starters. I am usually writing on something, though I only post once in a blue moon.
In my daily life, I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Ohio State University studying economics; I am an applied microeconomist with research interests in immigration, innovation, and urban issues.
