Yejin's Life


Yejin was my homestay sister in 2015. A homestay is when someone who is traveling to an area stays with a family, instead of staying in a hotel or somewhere else. When we first met, she was an elementary school student, but now she is a middle school student. This is her life as a kid in Seoul!

What do you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner?:

For breakfast: Triangle kimbap or rice with a fried egg.

Lunch: I usually have school lunch so it's different every day.

Dinner: Ramen, bibimbap, triangle kimbap, rice cakes... it's different every day. Whatever my mom makes to eat, I will eat it.

What is your house like?:

I live in a high-rise apartment on the fourth floor. A lot of my friends live in the same apartment complex so it's fun.

What chores do you have at home?:

At home I usually wash my own clothes, clean up my room and vacuum my room.

What jobs do your parents have?:

My dad is a police officer and my mom is a stay-at-home mom.

What time does school start, and what time do you go home?:

School starts at 8:00 AM and ends at 4:30 PM, but I go to private academy after school to study more so I stay there until 10:00 PM. After that, I go home.
