Who is Jo and Why is she in South Korea?

Hello and welcome to the tiny corner of the internet where I share my experience as an Australian girl married to a Korean man living in South Korea working as an industrial designer. If you’re still reading this after that mouthful of a sentence, then I think you and my blog will get along quite nicely.

I started Jo So Ko as a way to chronicle my study abroad semester at KAIST in 2017. Prior to that, I documented my travels to Japan on a blog called Jopan and obviously had to keep the name/country name portmanteau situation alive.

Three years later and I am chronicling a much different tale of life in South Korea. What was once filled with campus life photos and weekend trips around Korea is now full of adventures with my husband and advice about starting your career overseas. I can’t wait to see how my journey with South Korea, the Korean language, my relationships and career all continue to bloom in the coming years. I hope that you will stick around and share it with me.

I currently work as an industrial designer in a Korean company doing product design, interiors, graphic design, web design, social media management and just about everything in between. My blog and youtube are a 100% passion-fuelled side hobby that allow me to broadcast my experiences for everyone to see. If you would like to collaborate in any capacity, feel free to contact me or just keep in touch on Instagram.
