When a Nigerian-American girl met a South Korean boy, sparks flew. They soon fell all the way in love and shared their lives (and attempted to exchange their languages). After he left, she followed him to South Korea. What happened next wasn’t a happy ending but a happy beginning, and since then she has been sharing her life and love for all things Korean at her blog, WesternGirlEasternBoy.
I am a 24 years young, Nigerian-American writer, blogger, and world traveler.
Once I take (and pass) the Texas Bar, I will also be a lawyer!
More importantly, Hallyu swept me away in 2008, and I’ve been falling in love with Korean culture (and a few Korean boys and men) since then.
Along the way, I’ve gotten my heart broken (and put back together) as I learned what it’s like for two very different people to fall in love. I also learned Korean, and I’ve listened to too many Kpop songs, watched too many Korean dramas, variety shows, and movies, and eaten WAY too much Korean food!
After missing my flight back home from South Korea in the summer of 2011, I knew that my love affairs and long-awaited adventures in South Korea had finally begun. Even though I did make it back home to Austin, Texas, South Korea is always just a plane flight away.
