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.
