My name is Elley, born in the year 1989, grew up in Malaysia though fell deeply in love with South Korea.

Currently living in Seoul.

Why did I choose Elley Jin for my blog? Actually my surname is Chan, which is Jin in Korean and that is how i get this name for my blog.


My main languages areΒ English, Chinese, Cantonese and Bahasa Malaysia while learning Korean as well as Japanese. I feels that language opens up a whole new world to me, therefore my interest towards languages kept growing..


People tend to say that I look like a Hong Kong artist Kelly Chen, though I think I’m just way too far from her pretty looks.


My besties? I’m not really a people person, to be frank, I’m afraid of people. Hence there’s only 1 bestie that I have.

Yup, that’s her! Try imagine how she looks though…

  3. Hello Elley! Just wanted to say I really enjoy reading about your adventures in Korea. I’m originally from Korea, but it seems like you are way more knowledgeable of Seoul than I am… which is awesome! I started blogging about my life back in Korea (http://tckgoeshome.wordpress.com/) and it’s really interesting to read on other people’s perspective on Korea.

    I look forward to reading more posts! πŸ˜€
