Confessions of a Party Girl: A Night Out Between K-Pop Look-alikes and Party Pills

I love Hip Hop. Whether it’s underground Korean Hip Hop or Tyga’s newest album- chances are you will see me dressed in one of my favorite baseball caps and a crop top twerking with my girls in our favorite Hip Hop Club. And while I’m jamming with my friend to 3 X In a Row right now (an oldie but a goodie – anyone with me here?!) it automatically threw me back to one of the worst party nights ever which … you guessed it … took place at one of Seoul’s most famous Hip Hop Clubs.

It was during those last warm nights in October when my girlfriends and I decided to spoil ourselves with a legendary party night in Hongdae – and with that I mean getting a table with a shit ton of booze feeling like badass bitches blowing their pocket money for the weekend. The night started like a usual Saturdaynight: We hopped on the sub later than expected, pregamed with Tequila shots at a random bar in Sinchon and showed up to the club last minute before the guest list closed. I already started falling head over heels for pretty much every good-looking boy that we passed by, making me feel like a hormone driven teenager again. Little did I know – those guys were only the appetizers for the main dishes waiting inside. Continue reading “Confessions of a Party Girl: A Night Out Between K-Pop Look-alikes and Party Pills”

Being a rebellious 20-something years old in the 21st century you might guess: Getting tattooed has always been a plan of mine and when I accompanied a friend to her tattoo appointment last year, I realized: It’s about time to finally tick that point off my bucketlist.

My friend had found a young, energetic and talented artist on Instagram named Ida, who had raised in popularity after being interviewed in the i-D documentary ‘Grace Neutral Explores Korea’s Illegal Beauty Scene’. So needless to say, I was super pumped when I first stepped foot into Ida’s studio, located in one of the unknown side streets in Itaewon.  Continue reading “Power to the Women: Getting my First Tattoo in Seoul!”

The Truth About Living Abroad

“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.”                                                                                                            Mary Anne Radmacher

“I’m wondering how you will be like when you come back. 15 months abroad will change you…”, someone told me a couple of days before I hopped on the plane to move to the other side of the world. We were sitting there on a sticky and hot friday evening  surrounded by buzzing mosquitos while drinking a cold beer on the patio of my parent’s house. I remember nodding, holding stronger onto my glass as I started thinking of leaving my loved ones behind. And now seven months later I come to realize: God, was he right.
