    Korean Adoptee

    I am a Korean adoptee. I take the stance that I am 100% Korean (biologically) and 100% American (environmentally). I tend to get along with other Korean adoptees.

    Teaching Korean

    I started teaching Korean to foreigners. I met one student and he was Indian. He seemed to be talkative and intelligent. Even he was honest enough to hurt my feeling a little bit, I think he could be a good friend and student. And I met other guy. He's Irish and he's my neighbor...
