I have always wanted to be part of the K-Pop Academy and when I found out I got in, I was so happy 🙂
When I got to the KCCUK Centre, I was feeling excited to be part of a 12 Week Programme to learn about different aspects of South Korea, but I was also nervous because we had to present the PowerPoint slideshows we made to introduce ourselves to everyone.
I signed in at the main desk, and I received a name tag, K-Pop Academy notebook and bag. After a few minutes, we all went downstairs to start off the day.
There was a welcome and introductory speech and then the presentations began. We didn’t know when our presentations would be shown, so I was nervous as to when it was my turn to stand at the front and speak.
When my powerpoint was shown, my hands went all shaky and I got a lump in my throat so I wasn’t able to speak well but somehow I got through my presentation. I included emoticons and exo line sticker photos that made everyone laugh and smile :’)
There was a small break where Korean snacks and drinks were there for us to have, which was very nice. The Korean snacks were very tasty especially the Peperro sticks. During the break, I got to talk to friendly colleagues who had joined the academy.
After the break, we went back downstairs to play a quiz, with questions about South Korea. I was in Team Super Junior. It was fun and interesting because there were some questions that I did not know the answers too, but it was satisfying to have known the correct answers for some of the questions.
Then it was finished! The first K-Pop Academy class had ended in a flash! I wanted to stay to answer more questions from the quiz but it was home time. We received our first K-Pop Academy Homework Assignment sheet. I chose to do option 2, which was about why I think K-Pop appeals to so many people.
