My Love in Seoul:



My first ever book and more excited. I'm from India and would love to share about my first experience at Seoul and how I met my best friend or love of my life. We (I and my love) had shared Lots of
love and lots of fights under the lights of streets. This script is about 2 different people from 2 different countries and their culture, food (Indian’s (Me) are food lovers by the way :P) and
etc., How we met? What made us to come together? There are so many questions when we think about next step of our dating i.e., marriage, In India, Marriage is about 2 families getting together as a
blood relationship and understanding each other’s cultures and be there as a single family. Even in Korea, People respect their elders a lot (which I found most similar to India’s culture) and need
approval from both families to marry. Will they accept us as we are from different countries? Will we become one with family’s acceptance? Will they accept us as we are? I believe God is there with
us. Let’s see, How it will goes…..

Chapter 1:  Travelling from India to Seoul (South Korea)

Today I came to office as usual and not in a mood of working. I have watched movie yesterday night and I’m very sleepy, suddenly my Project Lead (PL) pinged me in chat and asked me to come into his cabin.

I was like “No! Please” I said in my mind and walked into his room.

He (PL) said – “Hey Radhya. How are you?”

“I’m good. How about you Krish?” I said.

He said – “Me too good. Any way let me ask you something, are you interested on going to foreign country?”

I literally woke up from my sleep after hearing that. Basically Indian’s (Not all, Most of them) excited about abroad projects. I’m thinking of UK and US in my mind. And this is my first time to go out of the country. And I’m ok to go anywhere. I said to my mind- “I know you are excited. Calm down.” But I can’t control my feelings.

I said with excitement- “Yes. Of course.”

He continued – “Ok Well, our project is starting in Seoul (South Korea) and need some experienced to be there for the project to explain.”

I said – “OK.” When I first heard about Seoul, the only thing in my mind is K-drama’s, K-Pop (BTS, IU, MBLAQ), so many names and K-stars are revolving in my mind. Basically I’m fond k-dramas.

He continued – “Will that be okay for you, if we send you there?”

I said – “Yes.” With little low voice, because I thought it may be UK or US, but still I’m excited to see Seoul as well (may be because of K dramas I have seen earlier).

“Ok Then. This Weekend we will book tickets and will update you with details and get ready with your packing.”- he said.

“Sure (with little smile). Am I the only one going to Seoul and or anyone else will be coming with me?” – In new city, we feel better if we go with any known person.

“Yeah. I guess Sushant (team mate) will be there with you. We spoke with him and he said ok to go Seoul.” – He said.

“Ok. Good Then.” – I don’t know much about Sushant personally, we only have some professional talks and I guess he is good and fun-loving guy.

“Ok. You can go back to your work, will update you once I have ticket info and staying details.” – he said.

“Okay Krish. Will leave for now.”- I came back to my desk and spoke with my Mom, Dad and Brother and said that I’m going to Korea. And I’m excited like a kid.

From that day I started shopping, packed some food and I’m ready with my Bag. But I’m little nervous because it is new city, new people and new experiences.

After a week, I’m ready with my baggage and boarded flight alone to Seoul. I was informed that Sushant will come after 2 days.

After 6hrs 45mins I landed to Seoul.

I took my Baggage and came out of the airport and spoke with the concerned person who came to receive me.

I Observed roads with trees and it is so clean. It’s little cold in the city. He showed me my room, I loved the place. I rested for the day and woke up early in the morning to get ready for office and I don’t want to be late on first day of my office in Seoul.

I came to office and we introduced the team members, except one “Si Won”. He is our Sr. Business Analyst. He has some work and unable to make it to office. I heard he is little harsh, but good at heart.

I know he is senior, but I never thought I will fall for him.

Chapter 2: The day I met him(Si- Won)

My 1st day completed with introductions and I came back to home. And now the critical part food :P , I tried to find Indian restaurants and unable to find one near to me. And I completed my day with fruits and juices. And slept for the day.

Next day morning, I woke up with my Mom’s Skype call as I don’t have my new number activated and shared about yesterday experience and

I said  ”Mom, I’m getting late will talk to you later” and I hung up.

By god’s grace I have office cab for pickup and drop. It will be shared with the other members.

I got call from Cab, “Ma’m, I’m at your house parking place.”

I said “Yep. Coming please wait for 2 mins” and I closed my door and I could see one more person who is closing his door and I smiled, because I want to make some friends around my flat.

He didn’t even smiled back and he just gone with scary looks and waiting for lift.

Me too just followed him and waiting for lift, I was like bit scared by seeing him.

By god’s grace there are people in lift and just got down from lift.

And I saw cab and waved my hand. I could see one more in cab.

“Oh.. no! The person beside my flat is in the cab.”

He said with bold voice “Neoneun oji anhneunda?” I was like “What?” in my head I was like WTH he said.

Again he asked “Aren’t you coming?” bit scary and said “Yep. And asked is this cab for ****** Company?” just for confirmation :P

The cab driver said “Ye Ma’m.” As I understand by his gesture he said “Yes.”

I tried to look at him, he is busy with mobile and I continued to stare at window and could see all girls are so cute and skinny. I don’t know how they are maintaining their structure and their legs are like “Woh…!”  I thought I should lose weight in my mind.

Cab stopped at office, I said “Gomapseumnida” then for the 1st time the person who sat beside looked at me and I was like “Did I say wrong?” in my mind I was like “can’t you say Thank you, why you are making yourself laugh with wrong pronunciation” With Korean drama knowledge I thought I said right and I googled it and it’s correct J With pride head and entered office.

I don’t know why he gave me that look. May be he startled by hearing that. He may thought “At least she know how to greet people in Hangul.”

I went to my desk and looked for people I met yesterday and suddenly the same cab person came and sat beside me. In my mind “WTH! Why again? Why the world is so small and why he sat next to me?”

Tak- Ye-Jin is one I met last day and she is Junior Business Analyst.

She came to me and said “Hey Radhya! How are you?”

I said, “I’m good. How about you?”

She said, “Me too” and she went to the Cab person and said “Annyeonghaseyo seonsaengnim”.

He said “Annyeong” and I asked “Who is he?”

Ye Jin said “He is our Team lead, Sr. BA Choi-Si-Won”

“Oh Shit! How can he be my head and I already lost my 1st impression”

In my mind, “Why did I smiled and why did I said my thanks in butler Hangul”

Ye-Jin came and introduced me to him as ”seonsaengnim, she is our new colleague came from India for this project.”

I said “Hi! I’m Radhya” He just shook his head and didn’t even greeted me back and I was like “WTH! How can he be my lead ?”

After 10 mins Si Won called me “Radhya! I’m sending you documents go through it and lemme know if you have any doubts?”

I went to my desk and started going through documents. By seeing those documents I was like sleepy, Ye- Jin came and said “Radhya! Would you like to have Coffee?”

I said “Yep Sure. I just locked my laptop and stood at my place”

I could see Si- Won staring at me like “She just came and going for break and didn’t even finished a page.”

I just ignored him and went for break with Ye-Jin. As of now I could see she is fun loving and happily living girl with no tensions and she didn’t care about tomorrow. I just loved her attitude.

She said “I would like to come to India, Will you take me there?”

I said “Sure! Why not. I asked what you want to have?”

She said “One latte and Cappuccino“ I thought 1 for me and other for her. “What you want to have?” She said.

Me, “One latte” and we took 3 Coffee and i asked “for whom you took another?”

She said “Cappuccino is for me and latte is for Si-Won” and I Said “Oh! Ok.”

We took coffee to desk and she gave Coffee to Si-Won “seonsaengnim, You Favorite Latte.”

Si-Won said “Gomapta.”

I could see she is giggling and shy when giving coffee to him. I Could smell that she likes him and in my mind  “How can a girl like her have crush on him … Chaaa(expressing disappointment)”.

I thought of not asking her now, because she may think I’m judgmental by just seeing her a single day. I left that thought and continued with documents.

My Manger in Korea came and officially introduced me to that Si- Won and team and Si-Won smiled a little.

We are done for the day and went back to home, by god’s grace Si-Won is not in my cab as he left early from office.

I came to home and forgot the Pin Door lock number. Korean Houses are more secured with door lock systems. I don’t know whom to contact and the only person I know in the apartment is Si-Won.

They are only 2 flats in the floor and there is no security guard for Apartment. I was like lost and My number is not yet activated and I was struggling and about to cry. One side I’m feeling hungry like hell and other side I’m unable to contact anyone. I tried to ring the bell of Siwon’s door, I guess he is not yet came to home.

I mind just blocked and just sat at the door and I’m just scolding myself for forgetting the lock. It’s becoming dark and I can’t even put the light on. I just have Tab on my hand and trying to figure out how to open the door.

Suddenly I could see someone coming towards me and I was scared and put on torch of Tab and could see that’s Si-Won.

I stood up and he opened his door and came to me and asked “What happened?”

I felt very happy to see him and with shivering voice “I forgot my door lock pin and my mobile number is not yet activated and I don’t know whom to contact.” And my voice is like almost to cry.

He said ”Relax.Nothing happened, let me see.”

He called some door unlocking person and they said it will take 1-2hours to come and unlock.

He asked me to come inside and I said “Nope, That’s fine. Thank you for your help today. I don’t know what if you aren’t show up”

He said “You welcome.” I guess he smell that I was afraid and worried and he continued “It will take 1-2 hrs for them to come and unlock. Just come and have some food or drink here.”

I was like “Nope. I’m good. Actually I don’t drink.”

He said “I asked for soft drink and not for soju” And I went into his room it so clean and with so many plants inside the house. I felt like “Yeah. He is having good taste in greenery.”

I Said “Room is nice and it’s full of plants I loved it.”

He said  “I don’t have Indian food, would you like to eat some Noodles.”

I said “Anything is fine with me and he asked me to cut vegetables.” I was like “Okay! I just tie my hair and washed hands, started cutting vegetables and its gone silence for few moments.”

I felt like “Oh god! When these people will come and unlock my room and I’m little uncomfortable.”

He said “Noodles ready and he is about to put raw eggs on noodles. I said No! I will eat veg Noodles today :D ”

I started with 1 spoon and ended with full cup. He is just staring like that I came from drought for food.

Door unlocked people came they unlocked it and I said “Gamap….. Thank you” thought of saying in Korea and I don’t want myself to be joked.

I just went to my room and I could see some softness in him. May be that’s why Ye-Jin likes him.

Anyway he saved me today. I said Thanks to him in my mind and slept.

Early morning " i thought anyways he become my friend by giving food and should give him in return something."

Morning i locked my room and i din't see him, looks like he went early today. Cab came i went alone in cab and dropped at office and i kept searching for him not sure why i'm searching.

Suddenly Ye-Jin came and said "GD mrng! "

I said "Hey! Gd mrng"

She said "Are you looking for someone?"

I said "No. I'm just seeing around."

YeJin- "Tomorrow we have client meeting and we need to be on time. Otherwise we will get scholded by Si-Won."

I said "okay. Let me go through Documens so that i can understand the project thoroughly."

Yejin -"You didn't gone through the documents yet? He only gives us one day to check all documents. We need to be sure what ever he questions."

I was like "I just came yesterday. i looked up for most of the documents, i need to go through few And he didn't even mentioned that there is client meeting Tomorrow."

YeJin- "Didn't you saw the mail that he sent yesterday night @2:00AM?"

I said "What? i sleep at that time :D . how can i see?"

Yejin -"Radhya! You need to be careful when coming to the work with Si-Won. You should have atleast checked on morning."

"Why you are making me frightened? I think he is cool. may be his looks are scary."- i said

I Captured Si-Won with white shirt and he just looks like K-drama hero. i don't like white basically but seeing him in white shirt i was like "Wow."

Si-Won called me "Radhya! Did you gone through Documents?"

I said with smile face "Yep. But still i need few more documents to be covered."

He Replied with bold tone "When will you complete? we need to providePresentation and Then Usecases to client and Development team. And did you go through the process document i sent"

I murmered -"Process document?"

He screamed at me suddenly and everyone in the floor looking at us i felt very shy - "you haven't yet gone through it? That is the first basic document we need to go through and we need to understand client first. Without knowing the information how can you answer the client questions they ask in the room. It's already been 1 week and i have sent you those documents when you are in India."

"If you are not interested why you came to Seoul. you should have been there itself."

I was like- i don't know what to answer. He is so good to me yesterday night and what happend to him suddenly.

I got angry like hell, i want to give it back to him. may be he helped me yesterday, it doesn't mean that he can just shout at me infornt of my collegues. That too i'm new, he should understand.

I gave him back -"Si-Won, i understand we need to work on Presentation. i'm going through it. Will provide you all info and provide you with presentation tomorrow."

Si-Won-"Tomorrow? We have client meeting Tomorrow. we should be prepared with presentation by today. So that we can make changes. And You haven't yet gone through Doc."

He said "Okay! i will just wait for your mail Tonight."

With So much Angry almost tears in my eyes "I came to my seat and started with documents."

After few hours, Yejin came to me and asked "Are you okay? If he gets mad he don't see who all in floor"

I said -"If he is mad, i'm not the person just to take his anger. If i'm not working he should have asked me but not like he just shouts."

Yejin says -"Its okay! come and have some food or coffee."

"Nope. I'm not hungry. Anyways you just carry on."

Yejin insisted me to have food and i just lost my appetite and continued to work on documents.

It's 5:00PM already, i went through the documents i need to prepare Presentation now.

Yejin came to me and said "Lets go! Si- Won also went off, you can just provide him tomorrow."

I said -"You go and i will go in few minutes."

Yejin- "Okay, TC. Bye"

"BuBye. I started presentation and at last it completed at 9:00PM."

I'm not the one who just accepts everyone says to me. I just emailed the presentation to the Si-Won.

"I thought of buying him something in return of yesterday. He doesn't even deserves it."

I got out of the office and booked my Taxi went by self and got off at the room.

I saw there is some park near my apartment and some people having their walking. I went there to get my mind free for todays hectic day.

I just sat at bench and called my Mom -"Amma! Missing you. i want to come to home ASAP."

Mom Asked-"Why? What happened? All good?"

Me -"Yeah. All good" I almost got tears in my eyes."Nanna! How are you?"

Mom asked -"Did you eat?" I said -"yes." basically i'm feeling too much hungry as i didn't have food from afternoon.

I just saw Si-Won in the park and i'm unable to control my tears and i said -"Amma, I'm going for sleep and will call you later. Bye"

I don't know why, i didn't want to see him. I just walked off to my room and started crying as i hold my tears from morning. I thought this my wrong decision to come seoul and work here.

I don't know why that Si-Won changed in just a day.

I just slept and thinking of tomorrow's meeting. I don't know whether he saw my presentation or not? Not sure what he is going to reply to my mail. I just thought if he don't like my presentation and if he asks me to leave i will just say "Yes and then leave."
