Seoul, South Korea, population, twenty-two (22) million.

Hello and welcome to my apartment in Buntang, in Seoul. My name is Chang Yoon Nyung.

This is my living room. This is my husband and my daughter. We relax on the sofa, watch TV and drink tea in the evening.

In this corner, we have the things we collected on our holidays. The cat is from Japan. And my daughter really likes the music box. My daughter made this vase.

Maneki Neko: good luck charm

My daughter made all these things when she was seven years old. That’s how she imagined her room: a sofa, a bed, a dog. It’s all very Korean.

This is a totem pole. I decorated this corner and collected everything my daughter made as a memento.

This is the piano. My daughter is learning, and I let her do so to express herself. She plays Schubert. I played the piano when I was a child.

Kimchi: pickled cabbage

This is our dining table where eat morning breakfast, midday lunch and evening dinner. This is kimchi, traditional Korean food and rice cakes. We eat them for dessert.

That was our living room. Did you enjoy seeing it? I hope so. Thank you and good bye. Bye bye!
