By the time I began taking 연구반 in the spring, I had become committed to the “댄서 생활” (dancer’s lifestyle) that a small minority of Korean teens and twenty-somethings choose to follow, almost all of them with professional aspirations...Reflecting on the year, I am fully satisfied with how I spent my time and would encourage future Light Fellows to pursue something similar with an activity they enjoy. I entered the country knowing I wanted to explore a hobby, and fell deeply into a world within Seoul that few South Koreans themselves know or appreciate. "
