Inspired by KOREA series – 13. Emily Stokes

Story by Emily Stokes:

I first found out about Korean culture through Kpop. Through kpop I discovered TV shows and documentaries of groups and began to understand the way they live. But also after I began to become interested in their cuisine as it is so much different to ours and its a lot more traditional and steeped in culture.

I love the cuisine. Although I have never truly tried their food, it all looks amazing and welcoming to eat and I’m always fascinated about how they make their food! Also places like Seoul look fantastic at night!

I love the music the most and the amount of talent their artists have. I love the different concepts and the variety they bring as well within the music! As a musician, I am always in awe at the high quality production they have in the songs.
