My Kpop Dance Debut!

School festivals are a big deal in Korea. Often students prepare months in advance.  Our school's festival was one day of performances, then a day of festivities such as games and cafes.

I was asked by the teachers to help out with the surprise of the festival... the young teachers dancing! I was surprised but jumped at the opportunity because I knew the kids would love it.

We spent about a month being trained by two adorable dance prodigy students of ours.  We stayed after school until around 9 or ten at night.  It was incredibly exhausting, but fun at the same time. 

Here's some pictures, as well as a recording of practice, and finally the main show:

 Our name was A1K4. (One american, four koreans. Named after the band b1a4)

Here's the practice video, I arrive around the 3 minute mark:

Finally, here's the performance on stage, again I arrive around 3min in:

The kids and teachers loved it! I got a lot of compliments afterwards!

Peppero Day~

November 11th is Peppero Day here in Korea.  It's a holiday that was created by advertising companies. Peppero is stick candy covered in chocolate. (Thus why it's 11/11, since the date looks like sticks of peppero) Basically on that day, you give your sweetheart some peppero.

I had eaten most of my peppero before I thought to take a picture... but here's two from two of my favorite students! The one on the right is from an adorable boy who has a crush on me. Yet, I felt the need to correct his English, hahaha.

My student's performance

So, one of my students told us he wanted to perform for us during class one day! It was a big surprise and he played the theme song to one of my favorite movies! (Howl's Moving Castle)
