But as an American, England has enormous appeal. It's different enough to satisfy the craving for something culturally distinct from the US. The University of Leeds is one of the most diverse schools in the world, 25% of its 20k+ undergraduate population is international. And my extroversion would feed off of the lack of a (big) language barrier.
But Seoul is so cool. And the support that comes with a program like a structured study abroad is more utilized the more foreign and exotic a place is. I can go to England anytime and I'd be fine. I don't know the next time I could visit South Korea like this.
I'm torn. I look forward to learning more about this all.
