After a long and festive holiday season, AAJA-Asia’s Seoul contingent kicked off the Year of the Black Dragon with some much-needed hobnobbing during happy hour at the Seoul Foreign Correspondents Club. In addition to our current members, we welcomed a lot of bright, young faces, including some prospective new members!
Topics of discussion over the evening included new job opportunities, reporting on K-pop, the sartorial choices of the South Korean president and first lady and, of course, future events.
Famished after all that networking, the crew headed out to a crowded downtown bindaetteok joint for some deliciously crispy mung bean pancakes.
