You Have Worked Hard, This Year


There is a famous phrase in South Korea. It’s 수고했어 오늘도 (Sugohaesso Oneuldo) which means “You have worked hard today”. So I modified the phrase to 수고했어 올해도 (Sugohaesso Orheaedo) which means “You have worked hard this year” to say good bye to 2018.

A song that describe their life, a song that they will never get bored of, a song that at some point could be a soundtrack of their life. Like soundtrack of a movie or drama.

Because This Is My First Blog

Is this really my first blog?

Actually no haha

I had several blogs since middle school. I started blogging back then cause I thought it was really cool (and still cool) for having online journal.

My friends and I were competing to design as cool as possible by adding widget, changing font, changing the color of font, and everything we could do to make the blog “looks cool” haha

I don’t even remember what I wrote back then. But I am sure I wrote bunch of embarrassing blogposts 😅
