My name is Shaquanda but you can call me Shay (My Roommate). I am a Junior at Arcadia University.
I major in Graphic Design and minor in International Studies. My favorite colors are blue, black and red. I have a potty mouth and say the first thing that comes to my mind. My favorite Korean Food is Bulgogi. I visited Seoul, South Korea for 8 days in March of 2014 and plan to go back from mid-February to late-July 2016.
My K-World Journey
I credit my roommate with introducing me to Korean Pop Culture. My love started with BIGBANG’s Fantastic Baby. I was introduced to EXO and SHINee next and from there I started watching Dramas. My first drama being Shut up and Let’s Go. I fell in love with the seemingly weird music and extremely dramatic shows almost immediately. I immersed myself in the culture and from then on I have been a goner. I now read fanfics and I even have ships. Originally I went to Arcadia with the intent of studying in Spain but I went to South Korea instead. I plan to go back and my obsession is all due to my roommate Aneesah. I thank her and am glad God brought us together. Because of her I now have the chance to broaden my horizons even more. I love it.
Shay’s K-World: 12/15/2013 – Present
I have always wanted to blog about something and why not KPOP and K-Dramas. I am trying to create a brand with my blog. I want to share my views and opinions on music, dramas, movies and Korean culture. Yes I am a young, African-american, female, in love with another culture not my own. Don’t get me wrong though, my culture kicks ass and I love it. But I do enjoy Korean Pop Culture and want you to enjoy it with me. On this blog, as I build it up, I intend to do reviews on various things, include quizzes, have my own awards, fan merchandise and even books for learning the Korean Language. Please enjoy my blog. Suggest what to fix or add and let me know how you feel. I do care (sometimes).
