Keith is Back

24 Jan

I’m backkkkkkk! Over the summer I decided to take a mental vacation, and that’s exactly what I did. The last 6 months or so was pretty much filled with a gyopo bachelor experience in Korea. Lots of clubbing, lots of drinking, videos games at home (MW3 FTW!) and of course my sad attempts at dating. But it’s all out of my system now. It took long enough, but I’m over my break up, and ready to kill it on the web. So check out what’s in store from the former king of Korean podcasts (so easy to say because it was just me and my crew!).

New Website – Seoulistic.com

Wait… did i mention this before? like last year or something? Forget what I said ok? Just trust me this time!

I’ve lived in Korea for a total of nearly 4 years. And during that time, I’ve of course accumulated a lot of knowledge of how to get by in Korea. And although this knowledge comes to me easily, it might not be so obvious to the new comers or even the visitors to Korea. Here are few posts that I’ve already prepared for this upcoming site:

  • Where to go to see all the Kpop Idols in Korea
  • Where to go to get the Best Exchange Rates
  • Must Have Smartphone Apps for Korea
  • 4 Things to Get on the Cheap in Korea
  • The Most Famous Restaurants in MyeongDong
  • Accommodations for less than $50 a night

Bottom line is, I think people can use some help adjusting to Korea, or coming for a visit to Korea.

The site is not up yet as I am preparing content and getting a few developers and designers to help me out. I am aiming for a March launch. Hope ya’ll support it!

This Blog

For this blog (gyopokeith.wordpress.com), I hope to share some personal anecdotes that revolve around my life as a a Korean-American bachelor & struggling entrepreneur,  living in Korea. I hope my tales of woe will inspire you all to be just like me! And I do plan on updating this much more often.

Don’t forget to holler atcha boi, down in the comments section!

Might As Well Take Over the World While I’m At It

6 May

I recently just quit after working 3 years at KoreanClass101.com, and InnovativeLanguage.com. It was a great experience to learn, which I did a lot of, but towards the end, there was not much learning involved, and more of “just do what you’re told” (which I’ve never been really good at anyway).

So I left New York and came to Korea to work at Webactually.co.kr. I figured a start-up Internet marketing agency would be right up my alley. But instead of doing any marketing, all I did was translations of e-mails the boss wanted to send. Not very stimulating if you ask me. Plus, it seems like my 3 years of prior start-up experience around the web was about 3 years more experience they had.

So my buddy Howard hooked me up with a job at his English Academy. They’re giving some pretty decent pay, with work hours starting from 4PM – 10PM, which I love, but also hate at the same time. I love that I can work on anything I want to before 4PM, but getting home at 11:30 PM is proving to be quite a challenge.

I’ve always said I wanted to do my own thing, produce my own content, and possibly even make an effort to monetize that content. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and to be honest, I still only have a vague idea. I would still need money for hosting and domain, so I’m waiting till my next paycheck. But when I get it, hosting and domain will be right after a bottle of bubbly, cigar, and possibly gold grillz on my list of things to get.

Until then peeps. Please be kind 🙂
