Abstract
When I was studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea during the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, I made several interesting observations about the differences and similarities between its COVID policies and the United States’ and the effects that the virus had on each country. This autoethnography is a record of my experiences in both South Korea and the United States during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a collection of research I conducted about how each of these countries handled the virus and how they were affected by it based upon my personal observations and experiences. When I got back from my study abroad trip, I decided to compile my interests and majors together to form my final senior project at Kalamazoo college. I wanted to analyze and learn more about what happened in the background of my experiences and observations in each country. I organized these differences and similarities I noticed into different sections through this autoethnography and dived into the reasoning why and what each country was going through and attempting to do to mitigate the effects of the pandemic.
