A girl from Seoul approached me today for a series of questions in hopes of her rise in proficiency with the English language. After getting to know her for a bit, I took her for a shake at the Grand Central Shake Shack, gave her some pointers about the city (“stay out of the park after dark, avoid shady men at bars, &C.”) and sent her on her way. She told me she was a huge a fan of “Beyonce, Akon, and Michael Jackson” and was surprised by my knowledge of Park Chan-wook films and the history of the ROKAF. I thought she was in college. It turns out that she is a 28 year old lawyer-to-be on a two month break in the States for shits and giggles. I would like to do that.
