Repost - Feet Man Seoul: Korean Fashion Designer Profiles: Choi Bum Suk

The second of many Korean designer interviews to come.

On day two of the last Seoul Fashion week I had a chance to ask men's wear designer Choi Bum Suk some questions. I got a chance to get backstage after his runway show, so there is some noise in the background because they were breaking things down and setting up for the next show. My apologies.

Here is the link on FMS: Korean Designer Profiles: Choi Bum Suk

Here is the website for his clothing line: General Idea

  1. Don't hate me, but my comment will be long and will probably have little to do with your blog entry. This comment would probably be better in an email, but... I hate emailing! I hope you don't mind. Sorry for any inconveniences.

    First, I wanted to say that I love your blog. You remind me of myself. We both enjoy John Mayer. (Isn't he just brilliant?) We both speak our minds, and I too want to be a writer when I grow up.

    Anyway, I was wondering how you got to go over to Korea? That sounds like a funny question, but I'm currently learning Korean and want to reside there and experience the culture. All I know is that they really want English teachers (I'm an English major). So I'm wondering if you went over to Korea first as a student, or as a teacher? Basically, I want to know exactly how you were able to get from L.A. to Seoul so that I can imitate your actions. :P

    I guess the abridged version of this entire comment would be:

    I'm 20, live in Ohio, and am currently learning Korean while majoring in English, do you have any tips or advice for me to get where you are now? (You've got a law degree. That's pretty awesome all on it's own.)

    Also, for some reason your videos in this blog entry won't load for me. All I get is a black screen. It's probably my lame computer.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I hope you don't mind me stalking your blog periodically. I enjoy reading what you have to say.

  2. Thanks for the comment and compliment.

    However, it's best to email me ;)

    The address is on the right sidebar.


Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog. It's my first blog, and I'm glad folks are still stopping by even though I'm no longer living in South Korea. Feel free to comment. If you want a personal answer, leave your email, and I won't publish the comment. Nasty comments and spam links will not be tolerated.
