Episode 29 - Lucy


South Korea through the eyes of a Slovak girl? What a better way to get introduced to this interesting culture! In the 29th episode of Humans of SDU, we are introduced to Lucy, who can tell you a lot about South Korean culture – from politics to music and skincare, there’s nothing she does not know about!

  • Why is K-Pop not the most accurate name for this music genre?
  • What are the elaborate South Korean self-care routines?
  • What is the thing that makes you feel at home and why Lucy is still looking for one?

How did we find Lucy?

It’s crazy how much you can get to know a person while working together! But that is exactly what happened to Lucy and Miška – they worked together at a pizza restaurant and spent countless hours getting to know each other. Miška found Lucy to be a perfect guest for Humans of SDU due to her amazing sense of humor, passion for traveling, and spending a whole month in Seoul!

Portrait of Lucy

“It’s actually really weird or unnatural for me to say K-pop because Koreans themselves don’t call it K-pop. It’s just that we in the West have to label what’s coming out of that country because it is so weird and so different.”


To be honest, this was probably the weirdest episode to record due to the fact that Lucy and both of our hosts can easily speak in their mother tongues with each other! So, if you want to learn something about South Korean culture but also laugh at Lucy, Anna, and Miška struggling to speak English, listen to this episode of Humans of SDU!
