A chance to have a picture with Prof. Shim, an expert in Hallyu and Media Studies. After meeting him first in 2010..well... in Jogjakarta, we occasionally met for academic endeavors in Seoul. This time around..thanks to him..we met again in Busan for this seminar.
Not much to tell..but it was indeed a good day.
Then..of course I also met my long-time friend, now Dr. Park Kwan-woo, who just got his Ph.D from Sussex University in 2014. We met back then in Jogjakarta when he studied Indonesian language and culture in Universitas Gadjah Mada..hmm was it like 2004? gee..I did not remember but..one thing for sure...we met again in Busan for KISEAS seminar..which was a big deal.
We're now researching the same topic..about Indonesian migrant workers.--which is a great thing to start.
