In regard to my previous post about North Korea

There is that phrase 'broken beyond repair', and I think it is suitable to use when talking about the blood-line of leaders in North Korea. It was very cruel indeed killing the country's second in command Jang Song Thaek (tyrant leader Kim Jong-Un's uncle) however, Kim Jong-Un wanted to have more revenge, more greed, more assurance of his power and killed his whole family, apart from his blood Aunt. He didn't even kill only adults, he killed minors too. Read about the recent North Korean occurrence here.


Hi all! I am still counting down the days till I leave for Spain (19 to be exact). I still don't know my work placement so hopefully it will be confirmed soon! Recently I have been listening to a couple of songs in Portuguese and a few more in Spanish after having some recommendations and wanting to break out of my habit of just listening to Shakira to learn. I also aim to watch some movies in Spanish and start watching a Tv series. The songs in Portuguese are both by Adriano Ribeiro after seeing my friend share a cover of his song 'Cenário de Novela' and I some how came across 'Timidez'. I would suggest you give them a listen. I do not understand Portuguese but somethings are guessable because the amount of Spanish I know and limited French as the languages have their similarities. Do you listen to any songs in other languages?

North Korea asking for reconcilliation with the South and an end to the military hospitalities

Today, I had my usual browse on BBC Mundo and I saw the headline 'Corea del Norte pide a Seรบl "poner fin a las hostilidades" ' and my first thought was  'caramba!' '๋“œ๋””์–ด!' and '๋ง๋„์•ˆ๋ผ!' without thinking about the amount of times peace must have been offered just as an attempt ambush! Most of the comments were negative, saying how 'North Korea are at it again' how the letter has a 'hidden motive' but I would like to think 'what if?' What if they tyrant was unlike his father and grandfather? What if he had enough of the suffering in his country? What if he wanted to create ties with the world again and become one with the South? What if this was genuine? It is unlikely considering the endless threats North Korea makes, the fact that Jang Song Thaek was executed a few weeks ago for conspiracy and that well, it is North Korea. However, I really wish the North Korean leader would open his eyes and therefore opening the eyes for the millions of civilians blinded by propaganda or too suppressed to escape. Read the article here. What is your take on the recent news of Kim Jong-Un wanting peace?

Any Korean learners?

The way I approach learning Korean. If you are a beginner or are curious,  THIS should help you! There are a few things that need changing, I literally tried to make this in two hours for my Korean class juniors (๋‚ด ํ›„๋ฐฐ๋“ค) and I didn't use every verb or word that I know. It is just basics :)

A different similar point of view

So before I had mentioned Kim Han Sol - grandson to the infamous Kim Jong Il; he was interviewed about his life in North Korea and away from North Korea. I have previously talked about life in North Korea from the viewpoint of an escapee, but this is from the perspective from a member of the actual 'royal' family, who too does not agree with the ways his family have been ruling the country. Watch part one to the interview (in English) here and part two here!

Guess who got a new Atlas..?

It was I! Treated myself to a new big atlas ♥_♥ . I love Atlases! It was originally £90 then £15 (but I got staff discount so it then became £8) ;) yaay discounts and geography!!
It may be obvious but I love geography. Some of my friends also used to call me Atlas due to my knowledge of the locations of countries and places on the world map!
Do you own an atlas?
