Meet the Team



Hi, I’m HallyuNoona and I am a twenty-something year old international Korean culture fan. I am (slowly) learning Korean, love Kpop and cook Korean food a few times a week.

I live in the south of the U.K. and don’t know a single other Kpop fan in person! I’d really love it if you follow my blog and actively comment on things because I’d love for this blog to become a hub for k-fans.

My other hobbies include photography, writing fiction and reading.

I’m a bit of a music obsessive and approach people who don’t really have strong feelings about music with a bit of confusion.

You can find out a bit more about me HERE in my everyday people of the world submission.

    Hey Hallyunoona, I’ve been following your blog a while now and have learned so much about Korea and Korean culture. Would you fancy taking part in my new blog project:

    It’s about sharing as many people around the world as possible to try and break some stereotypes and make us realise that despite our differences we’re all just humans.

      I would be delighted to take part if you would like me to. I’m flattered to be asked.

      Just to let you know as well, The Korean Culture content of the blog hasn’t stopped, I am in the process of gearing up to a big expansion to the blog at the end of the month.

      (Just in case you’ve been missing something you normally read)
