Author: Mr. Dipanjan Ray

I am an international student living in Korea for over 5 months now let me say that I have enjoyed every micro-second of being in Korea. It has been a memorable experience, not only in terms of getting to see many new places but also to meet different people all around the world and experience life so what we called “out of the comfort zone” as well.
