Hi! My name is Jung. I started this blog in 2010 after graduating high school as an outlet to practice writing. It’s still nominally an “anything goes” blog, but a series on music that I wrote in 2010 called “Top 100 Korean Songs of the Decade” has been drawing a modest but consistent amount of visits over the years – perhaps that is how you got here!

I started writing for hellokpop.com as the resident reviews editor in 2011 (contributing only sparingly since 2014), which is part of why this blog went dark for a few years. (You can check out my archive of writing here.) It’s June 2015 now, and I hope to make posting here a tad bit more of a regularity going forward – starting with another series on K-pop that I am preparing little by little.

In real life, I am a graduate student at the Ohio State University pursuing a Ph.D. in Economics. Before that, I graduated from the University of Washington in 2014. There’s a lot I’d like to write about – football, other sports, academic and everyday economics, music, and faith, for starters. Let’s do this.

  1. Not sure how active you are on this site anymore but I was really hoping you can help me with some very vague details. I used to be in a tae kwon do class and we used to play this one Korean (kpop) song that I really want to find but cannot at all. It was very fast paced and there was a dance with it (if that helps). Some of the lyrics go like this and hopefully you can help me!

    “Awaaaaaaaaaa awaday badi baaaa a woo pa ra in yaaaa a woo pa raaaaa in yaaaaaaaa”.

    Very fast paced song, NEED to find it for some nostalgia. We listened to it in like 2004 but I’m not sure if it was before this decade. Thanks if you can help, you’d be a life saver. Its a kick ass song.
