K-Pop Academy Week 1: Welcome to the 6th K-Pop Academy

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.

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.

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.
