Country: South Korea

I’m currently living in South Korea, but I’m actually from the southeastern United States. I would love to find someone to exchange snail mail letters with. I speak Korean and love learning about other languages and cultures.

I’m into fandom things like Sherlock and Welcome to Night Vale, and I’m a fan of Edgar Allan Poe, H. G. Wells, and Shakespeare. I often write fanfiction, and very occasionally an original short story.

I have virtually no interest in math or sports. Sometimes I like learning things about science (especially if I can incorporate it into a story).

I would like to write letters with someone with interests similar to mine, and who is intelligent and not afraid of serious discussions about frivolous issues. :)
