    Good call in choosing to teach ESL in South Korea. Wish I had jumped on that opportunity years ago when I had the chance right after University. It is such a great way to save money and explore Southeast Asia at the same time!

    We are KORELIMITED, a streetwear apparel brand that revolves around Korean culture and lifestyle. We’ve been following your blog for quite a while and we felt that your Korean travel content would be an invaluable and great match for our brand.

    Most recently, we launched a collaboration with the WCSP (Woven Cut Sewn Perfection), one of the most established cut-and-sew streetwear brands on Melrose in Los Angeles. Earlier this year, we also released a couple collaboration designs with IAMNOTAHUMANBEING, the hottest streetwear brand in South Korea. Last year, both of our designs with 1 Million Dance Studio’s chief choreographer Lia Kim and YouTuber JuNCurryAhn sold out instantly. You can find more about us and our designs at korelimited.com and our Instagram page @korelimited.
