Kai Potter, '19, Summer Internship at the Korea Herald in Seoul, Korea, Summer 2017

September 20, 2017

              I arrived in Seoul with some idea of what to expect at the Korea Herald because one of my close friends happened to have the same internship last year. But aside from what she told me regarding the responsibilities of the position and atmosphere of the office, I went into my first day at work with as few expectations as possible, so as to keep an open mind. Initially, I was entirely new to the journalistic process and the kind of work that it entails. Having finished my internship at the Korea Herald, I am...

Jessica Chung, '19, Summer Internship at CJ Entertainment & Media in Seoul, Korea, Summer 2017

September 1, 2017

Since returning from Korea, I’ve been asked “Oh, how was Korea?” quite a lot. Answering this seemingly innocuous question has given me more trouble than I could have possibly anticipated, not because I didn’t enjoy my time there – in short, Korea was wonderful – but rather because I’m not really sure where to begin. To condense the experience into whatever brief description I can offer within a normal conversation seems to be doing the trip a disservice. So instead I often...

Marie Carroll, '20, Harvard Summer School in Seoul Program, Summer 2017

September 1, 2017

After studying abroad in Seoul for a summer in high school, I was eager to return during college. Not only did I want to become better at speaking Korean, but I hoped to learn more about Korean history and film so I could better understand Korean politics and culture, given Korea’s current relevance to both foreign affairs and the global economy. Studying these subjects in Korea presented the opportunity for language immersion and to experience Korean culture first hand.
