Hi I’m Angela Kim, a 33 year old Filipina living in South Korea. I am also a mom of two, a 15 months old baby girl and five year old boy. I graduated from my Masters Degree in Nursing here in Korea at Inha University. Currently I am working as an English guide at one of the biggest steelworks in the world, POSCO.
How is your fashion style like and where do you draw inspiration from?
Mainly feminine chic style like flowy dresses and skirts. But depending on my mood, I can also do street style like rugged jeans with a nice black blazer. I really like the Korean style so I get inspiration from K-pop and actresses or even sometimes Koreans I see on public transportation/ restaurants basically everywhere. Haha.
Do you have any favorite food or cuisine?
Korean food definitely coz it’s very healthy. Can’t decide which specifically coz there’s just too many but spicy kkalbijim (korean braised beef) is a mood uplifter. Haha.
What is it like living in Korea and what do you love about it?
TOXIC! Haha life in Korea is very fast paced and there are so many pressures. Work is a priority more than family, Koreans especially at work are very perfectionist, you always need to follow the latest trend or you’ll be considered different/ possibly discriminated.
However, Korea is amazingly advanced in their technology so everything is very convenient from daily life transactions, public transportation and so on. Health benefits are great as well.
If you could change one thing about the world, what will it be?
I guess discrimination/bullying. I just hope that everyone can receive fair and equal treatment. Everybody deserves to be loved and to be given chances.
Have you been in an embarrassing situation before that is funny now when looking back?
I first got pregnant when I was 28 years old. At that time I was riding a subway and since I am a student doing my masters degree I was wearing a backpack and reading my Korean book preparing for my final exam. Sitting beside me were three Filipino men and suddenly one of them spoke in Tagalog telling the others how ‘malandi’ (flirt, idk the exact translation) I was for being pregnant at such a young age. I was so shocked and just froze at that time. I don’t know if I should say that I am already 28 and that I am a Filipino who understood what he said, but instead I just pretended I didn’t understand. hahaha probably I felt happy than angry for being mistaken very young ^^.
Would you rather be able to taste colors or see smells?
This is difficult, but I guess taste colors coz there’s just so many of them. I’m curious how a rainbow would taste.
What turns you off on a date?
Poor conversationalist. Hahaha I love having a really good conversation with people. Someone who can give me amazing insights on different topics.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Angela. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Smart and confident.
