“To Geonjians! I am a student in the department of Forest Resources. I am entering my fourth year now. I started in 2006, when I joined an anime club(만화동아리). I did a costume play, and I was going to make a hanbok which was shown in comic books named “The Palace”. No internet malls sold the clothes, so I made them by myself. Then, I felt interest in making a fusion hanbok. I decided to make a shopping mall for fusion hanboks, even though I was a freshman at the time.
It was hard, but now the mall is quite known to people. Students studying abroad ordered fusion hanboks for their proms. I felt proud of myself for doing this. Now, I want hanboks to become international clothing, like the kimono in Japan.
How about making hobbies like me? It can be a chance to find your interests.”

You can see movies with your friends. You can’t imagine seeing a movie alone. Many people think that it’s quite shameful. But it’s not! It can give you special feelings. Just pick a day and go with confidence. Don’t be afraid of it. Many people feel awkward when they do this the first time, but you become more comfortable when you repeat.
- Go backpacking.
Backpacking is traveling alone without a guide. The merits of backpacking are that we can save travel expenses and experience more vividly. As we grow older, it becomes a burden to us physically and mentally. So, we should go backpacking as soon as possible, when we are young.
Europe, Australia, Japan, Canada and India are recommended to people who plan for traveling alone. First of all, you can move easily between the nations in Europe, because you need not be issued a visa to most nations. So, you can see many places for a short time. The next option, backpacking in Australia, is suitable for people who want a personal experience. Also, various leisure and sports programs are ready for you there. Japan has merit in that prices of products are cheap, and one city is close to another. Japan is recommended to people who feel burdened by long distance. In Canada, hotels especially are very clean and have various convenience facilities. Canada is recommended to people who want to study language abroad through backpacking. The last country, India, still remains in a caste system, so everything from the highest culture to the lowest culture coexists. Also, religions such as Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism are mixed, and you can see various sceneries from tropical beaches to permanent snow. But, if you go to India, you should not shake hands with the left hand and should use your right hand mainly. Also, you should not taste food before eating it.
Eat alone in a romantic restaurant.
It is difficult for you to go and eat alone in a romantic restaurant, but in actuality, it is pretty common in Europe. Koreans are not familiar with this culture yet. If you have the fiery passion and courage of your twenties, though, you can do anything. Go confidently and order something. You need not worry about other people’s eyes. Someday other people may envy your confident attitude.
Jump in the winter ocean and get wet.
Everyone may have always dreamed about jumping into ocean in the winter and getting wet. It is not at all an easy thing to do! We worry about catching a cold after getting wet. If you have the healthy physical strength of your twenties, however, getting wet in the winter ocean is a good opportunity. Then, you may feel healthier than ever and your stress may go away. Enjoy the coldest shower in the world before it is too late.
Take pictures of your naked body.
Taking pictures of your naked body is also one of the things that people in their twenties surely attempt. Actually, when you hear about this, you may think it is a sexually perverse act, but it is not erotic at all. This means you need to cherish pictures of your body when you are young. The beautiful body of youth doesn’t last forever.
Kiss intensely in a crowd with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
Many dramas on TV or movies show you kiss scenes. Whenever you see the scenes, you may always envy them. But don’t be envious of that from now on. You can do it! Only the first step is difficult. After kissing, you and your boyfriend or girlfriend can confirm your love, and you can gain everybody’s admiration. We only live once. Shouldn’t we try to kiss in a crowd at least once in life?
We only live once. Therefore we should cherish every fleeting moment that is never to return. Escape the dull everyday routine right now, and challenge yourself in many ways. Isn’t it a waste for you to live your life just by following what others do?
