I found this contest from Facebook last week...
This contest from Korea Tourism Organization, this contest about writing blog about Korea and the winner have chance to meet 2PM and Miss A, famous K-Pop idol groups artist in Korea and at the same time the winner will get experience the Korea Tour with them...
That sound so COOL to me!!! Right???!!!

안녕[annyeong] or 안녕하세요 [annyeong-haseyo] is most common word that Korean people say everyday. But this word have 3 mean; first is Hi, Hello, Good Morning, and Good Afternoon; second is Goodbye or in formal phrase is [annyeong-ee-keseyo]; last mean is Wishing you many blessing...

With this 3 meaning, what "Annyeong" mean to you??? To me, "Annyeong" not to mean goodbye forever... It will always mean Hi or Hello to me... (^_^)v

I LoVe everything about Korea such as culture, foods, interesting places around Korea, Korean language, Korean fashions and of course K-Pop stars...

Actually the most inspired me about Korea is the Korean's culture,.. what make me say like that because I like to learn about their healthy lifestyle's. I learn a lot of about Korean healthy lifestyle's is when I watching TV program "Vitamin" from KBS World and other healthy TV program from KBS World. Now my lifestyle, mostly like them and one of my favorite healthy drink is "Brown Rice Tea."

The nutrients in Brown Rice make up 60% -70% of our daily needs. Rich in Vitamin B group (B1 and B3), minerals: manganese, selenium, iron and fibber, regular consumption of brown rice and a healthy lifestyle may help lower cholesterol, reduce risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and colon cancer. The high fiber content of brown rice has good effect on controlling cholesterol and is of prime importance in keeping away heart disease. I already try it... Now my healthy become good than before... (^_^) Try it~~~

Korea have many healthy foods that we can try it~~~

Bugogi (with alternate spellings of pulgogi or bul go gui) - is the name for the famous Korean barbecue dishes. Thinly sliced beef pieces are covered with fragrant barbecue sauce and cooked at your table over a charcoal grill. There are many version using different meats such as jae yook gui (pork) or dak bulgogi (chicken), with other choices including fish, shrimp and squid. When the meat is cooked it is dipped in barbecue sauce and served wrapped in a lettuce leaf.

Nowadays, internet is the most important things to all, from internet I can stalk everything that related to Korea, mostly the idol until the Korean Hallyu Wave a speared around the world.

Korea always made me jump in excitement. I have a lot of information to share from my view of Korea, that why this topic is the best topic to me. When I talk about Korean Culture, foods, interesting places or anything about Korea, my heart always race and fast... so excited am I???

This year I start learn Korean language seriously by myself. Actually I want to learn at Korean Tourism Organization from the professional teacher but their schedule not match with my schedule. That why I decided to learn by myself.. Of course from book... (^_^)v

Last but not least, I found something interesting and unique about Korean culture when I watching online TV variety program from internet about new debut K-POP artists. I love their spirit's of hard working to achieve their dream to become Korean Hallyu Stars around the world.

Because of that I love to learn more about Korean culture and I want to feel the experience by myself. To be honest, I'm totally a K-POP fan..Since kid, I'll already exposed and start like Korea by watching Korean Drama such as Winter Sonata, Autumn In My Heart and so on...

Now everyone around the world known K-POP, mostly teenagers and youngsters. The Korean industry is mostly led by young idols regardless bands, solo male or female artists that focuses a lot on one of a kind dance steps, unique and different music genres, bizarre and special outfits that capture a lot of attention which is imitated by many youngsters all over the world.

Like I says before their spirit's of hard working when their still in training before their debut as the K-POP artist. During their trainee period might be very tough and tiring but because of their perseverance and the hungers for success, they managed to overcome all these difficulties and make them different person after debut.

I known that the ambassadors for the Korea Tourism Board is the two of the famous Korea bands are 2PM and Miss A and of course I would be delighted to meet them, face to face. Just of one in million chance to go on a Korea Tour with them. To be honest I am personally is the big fans of 2PM and Miss A since their debut until now. The "10 Points out of 10" is the first song of 2PM when their debut plus with their well-known acrobatic moves and good dancer of B-Boys, make their latest album "Hand Up" hit around the world.  I not have any experience yet to meet 2PM or Miss A face to face, even thought 2PM already came Malaysia for their concert. 

With the great dancing skills, exceptionally good vocals and of course their so petty in real life, make I like Miss A since their debut with a song "Bad Girl Good Girl" which is very good vocal and powerful performance of song "Breathe" to their recent one "Touch". The latest "Touch" album is totally make them different from the previous album and their songs really fresh to me. Actually I found the Korea World Premium of Interactive Movie "annyeong" from the official site of Korea Tourism Organization in Korea, that  match with the title of Miss A album "Touch"; which is "Touch Your Dream" and this contest is "Touch Korea Tour"... (^_^)

Korea is the best country to explore because Korea is the place that very rich in culture and it would be great to experience by myself. I would be more thankful to be able to be participate in this awesome journey to explore Korea, to taste the origins of good food and good music, and to learn more about the different culture, community and society.

Two dream in one opportunity in my life~ That why I think I have to take this chance of the event "Touch Korea Tour with 2PM and Miss A". I feel so happy when Korean Tourism Organization make this contest and I would like to thanks to the Korea Tourism Organization for make this contest. (^_^)
