Hello - from a closeted Korean guy

Unread postby Tim_Iddboy » 29 October 2022, 13:09

First name: I want to be anonymous for now.
Nickname(s)?: I do not have any nicknames, but you call me Tim here.
Age: 18
Orientation: Gay
Where you live: I live in a city in South Korea. To be more specific, in a gloomy apartment building, like most Koreans.
Where you're from: I am ethnic Korean, and was born and raised in Korea.
What you do (job, schooling, etc.): I am in high school, and graduate in a few months. I plan to enroll in university after that.
Dream Job: Anything that is well-paying and stable. Most preferably journalism, but I will most likely major in business for the sake of my future salary. I also want to have a job that I can make use of my English.
Religion (or lack thereof): I am non-religious, which is common in Korea. I am skeptical about the existence of God.
Political philosophy: I consider myself center-left in the political spectrum. I plan to engage myself more in politics in university, and learn more about the right and left. I think it is important to try to understand different opinions in politics, and should not label the opposing view as 'evil.'
Interests and hobbies: My hobbies include: reading or watching the news(BBC, NPR), reading Wikipedia, watching YouTube videos, listening to 80s' music, and writing messages to online friends. I am much interested in history and culture.
Drinking, drugs or sobriety?: I cannot drink yet (underage), but I think I will be a social drinker (a few cans of beer with close friends, I think) in the future. I have no plans to do any kind of drugs, including cigarettes. I also oppose the introduction of recreational marijuana in my country.
Special talents: I speak fluent English than most of the people in my country. I know a lot of random facts as well.
Pet peeves: Excessive tattoos (they scare me), dirty phone/laptop screens, and ancient bars of soap in a public bathrooms.
Personal hero: I do not really have one.
Favourite real-life homosexual: I had a crush on the actor Kevin Spacey. Perhaps I still do, despite the allegations of sexual molestation. I just find young Kevin Spacey quite attractive.
Favourite movies: "One Fine Day," "Threads," "American Beauty"
Favourite TV shows: Saturday Night Live, World Theme Tour (a Korean TV program - features academics/reporters/bloggers backpacking around the world), The Man in the High Castle (I haven't watched the series yet, but they sound great)
Favourite music: "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins, "Dreams" by The Cranberries, "With or Without You" by U2, "Beautiful Mistakes" by Maroon 5
Favourite books: For three years in high school, I have only read boring textbooks and exercise books. I will get to read "real" books in university, hopefully.
Favourite food: I mostly like everything except for certain types of seafood. Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Italian cuisine are my favorites.
A quote to live by: "Don't stop when you're tired, stop when you're done."

안녕하세요, 반갑습니다
its been 5 years since I use my Korean in my company.
I used to have penpal friend from Korea when I was in University, then When I work in South Korea for a year I missed the chance to meet him coz he is on military service. and I lost contact with him because both our e-mail inactive due to forgotten password. Still hoping to reconnect with him again.

well, most of city in Korea have high apartment, that doesn't help. I was living in Koreas biggest steel producer city.
