A few weeks ago, MCA Music Inc. gave us the opportunity to meet dance-rock band DNCE in Seoul, South Korea. It was a blast being in the same room with the four-piece, made up of Joe JonasLee Jin JooCole Whittle, and Jack Lawson.

During our breakfast date with them (how #BLESSDT, riiight?), we asked Jin Joo, who's Korean ICYDK, where she'll be taking the boys while they're in her home country, and the lovely lady got excited to share her plans with us as she plays tour guide for them.

"I'm so excited to take them around my hometown! And I can't wait to bring them to every single city and place, and just show them what Korea's about," she told us. "I want to bring them to Myeong-dong, Hongdae—there are a lot of places to shop and we can go there, and when we want a different vibe, we'll move to another place."

Korea's multicultural district, Itaewon, is a popular tourist destination because it's where people can get a taste of cultures from other countries.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
