I’ve been to Korea three times since 2016. The first one was when my friends and I had a memorable autumn experience in Seoul and Sokcho. I literally have tons of videos in my hard drive. I didn’t get to edit them on time and share them to you last year so here’s a short teaser of the first Amiciness Goes on a VL: Korea episode. Hope you enjoy!

Sang In from South Korea has made it to the Top 3 of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 4. She’s the first ever Korean AsNTM4 representative to make it this far; will she take it all the way to the top? This is her portfolio on the show so far:

2015 was Amiciness’ debut year after expanding out from Tumblr. Honestly, I didn’t expect the blog to grow as fast as it did. After 525,600 minutes, the blog gained a couple of sponsors, 170 likes in Facebook, over 80,000 page views and almost 40,000 unique visitors. This blog is my “baby” project. Since blogs became a thing, I have always wanted to have my own and I have always been a frustrated writer. For some reason, I forgot to fulfil this dream. Maybe I felt that I was not ready or I could not sustain it because of school and eventually my day job. Finally, I decided to do it and commit. You won’t know if you’re ready for something unless you’d tried. This is Amiciness’ 2015 Year in Review.
2015 Year in Review
To celebrate 2015, here’s a recap of the posts that went “viral” (in my own definition) and those that were memorable to me as a blogger and pop culture fanatic.
In Korea, you can expect the unexpected (and in the cutest and most delightful form nonetheless). If you happen to be in Seoul, don’t you dare miss passing by Insa-dong (인사동). Insa-dong gave me this artsy-fartsy (no pun intended) hipster feel. Every bit of it is celebrating the colors of Korean culture, beautifully weaving together old and new traditions. I bought a bunch of one-of-a-kind items there. One of it is a pocket mirror shaped like a teardrop; a very unique idea for pasalubong. I will definitely be back!
Look! I had my caricature drawn!
I LOVE THIS PLACE!
Emo-Pocket Mirror :'(
If Myeong-Dong has a dog café, a cat café and a Hello KittyCafé, go to the top floor of Insa-dong and you’ll find Poop (not literally poop, but a small cute toilet-themed coffee shop).
