독학이라도 외국어에 잘 할 수 있다. 아니, 독학이라서 더욱더 쉽게 자유럽게 재미있게 공부할 수 있다고 믿는다. 영어랑 중국어는 어렸을 때부터 쓰는 언어. 2008년 1월 – 한국어 공부 시작. 인생에서 최고의 선택이라고 생각한다. 2012년 1 월 – 일본어랑 인연을 맺는다.
단어 외우는 것 싫고 그리고 해 본 적이 없다. 외국어 공부에 비법보다 꾸준한 노력이 더 중요하다.
이 블로그에서 나의 인생, 나와 인연을 맺은 2개의 외국어공부 과정을 여러분들과 나눈다.

Hangukdrama started out in June 2008 as a k-drama blog, but over time it has evolved to be a space where I share my language learning journey. Korean has been in my life for 5.5 years now and it has been a wonderful journey so far. Japanese came into my life in Jan 2012 and it looks like the two languages are destined to play a major part in my life.
I believe that self-studying languages is not impossible. In fact, it may prove to be even more rewarding and fun compared to language classes. In Hangukdrama, I mainly share about my self study journey and I’m preparing an e-book on “How to Self Study Korean“. Through the blog, I want to share the joy of picking up a foreign language.
