My Story

I got married on January 17th, 2015 and boarded on a plane to South Korea on February 22, 2015. Life has been a whirlwind of stress, joy, happiness, sadness, fear, courage, and any other feeling you can name. I have experienced a lot in a short couple of months, but I am persevering.


We are Waiting for Something

Austin Thomas Hyun Sei Johnson

I am Austin Thomas Hyun Sei Johnson! I am an adoptee from South Korea that grew up in the United States. I am currently attending Dongguk University in Korea as part of a student exchange program through the University of New Mexico. My goal of this blog is to document my life from living in the U.S. for 25 years and comparing it to the life I will be living in South Korea. I will compare life, culture, food, and anything else that comes to mind. I will also document my quest of locating my birth parents in South Korea.

One thought on “My Story

  1. A very inspiring story. I wish you all the best in finding your birth parents and hope you will collect most memorable moments of your life during your stay in Korea 🙂
