MY NEIGHBOUR, CHARLES EP.6-11


Ep.6: New students have come to the Foreigner School! Simon(Cuba) who's a volleyball player, Shannon(UK) who's a rookie singer, and Mahmoud(Uzbekistan) who owns a Uzbek restaurant are the juniors of Giulia, Arnaud and Adelia who graduated in last episode. What do these new students want to learn in the Foreigner School? Let's look into them who all differ in occupation, nationality and religion.


[- Ep.7: Shannon sings the national anthem of Korea in front of thousands of Koreans. But she has never sung it before since she was born and raised in the UK. To sing the national anthem of Korea, the pride of Korea, she practices hard for 2 weeks to have the perfect pronunciation.]

A very belated continuation of my last post, these next batches of episodes have what people wanted--experiences of foreigners living in South Korea who aren't white Westerners.
