|South Korea is such an interesting place when it comes to their education and how students interact with each other. Because Yonsei still mostly abides by relative grading, there's a fierce competition to come first in class and in my experience this causes Korean students to stick with their friends or be really shy. So if you're going to Yonsei and hoping to make awesome Korean friends, YOU will have to make the first introduction and be bold! You have to remember that South Korea is still a very much homogeneous society so if you look different, they may not know how to approach you even if they want to make friends with you. I made a few great friendships in my classes or on campus by just asking people to hang out and making the first move. So it's doable, but needs a lot of courage! As for exploring my host country, I spent all my time Seoul and not once did I ever feel like I was bored because Seoul is so vibrant and there's always something new to do. Their public transportation system will make your jaws drop, it's so efficient! The subway and most buses also speak in English, so no worries about when to get off! Traveling to other parts are also very doable at affordable prices with the KTX and regional buses, you'll just have to plan your time there very well!|
