Summary
Wander
Will people have forgotten about me? Will I feel like a foreigner?

Fear and excitement coursed through me as I fly to Korea. Due to the pandemic, I couldn't visit my hometown for almost three years.

What is Korea to me? Do I still want to visit Seoul every year? Why?

If I tried to have two homes, neither will become my home.

Wandering around, I pay attention to my feelings and thoughts to answer what I want Korea to be to me.
