What’s your full name?

Jung-Wook Wee, but I go by Ryan. I picked that name in the airport. I thought that people might have a hard time saying Jung-Wook, so I googled it. I found Ryan and that’s my English name.

 

Where were you born?

I was born in South Korea, not North Korea, South Korea.

 

How are the schools here different from Korea?

School is very different. In America, students move, and teachers have their own individual class, right? In Korea, it’s kinda different. So, teachers move and students stay in the classroom. We do not have our choice to select our subjects. They’re just assigned to us.

 

What do you like about America the best?

Freedom and hospitality. America is the first place that taught me about Christianity. I wasn’t Christian at all, but they taught me about being a Christian and God. That’s the biggest part I like about America. Christ and everything, that’s the best part.

 

Would you recommend studying in another country for other students?

If you have a chance, it’s a great opportunity to explore the new culture. It’ll help you a lot.
