“I first moved to Korea with my family when I was in middle school because of my father’s job and therefore it wasn’t really my choice or idea to move there. But although it wasn’t my idea to move to Korea I did end up falling in love with the country and culture so much.”

“I was so lucky in the sense that when I first moved to Korea it was with my entire family and therefore I didn’t experience too many problems and was able to slowly adapt to the country at my own pace.”

“I felt more comfortable living abroad than I did living in the U.S. at the time because I had spent so much of my childhood abroad.”

“I think it took me a total of 2 years before I was confident enough to actually have a full-on conversation with someone completely in Korean.”

“I find that when you are trying to learn a language it’s best to find fun ways in which you can study it like hanging out with friends. I also think that real-life interaction/situations with people using the language will really help with making it stick and stay for good!”

“I don’t think I have ever once gotten “dressed up” or purposely went out of my way to look nice just for going to class at school. In both high school and university you could catch me in the classrooms with my glasses on, unwashed hair in a messy bun, and a hoodie with sweatpants of some sort on!”

“I am always working hard to prepare myself for whatever role may come my way someday! For example, I have been training in stunt choreography for a little over a year now and I also take acting lessons online from coaches in Hollywood.”

“Pursuing the career of an actor is never easy no matter the country. And trying to pursue it in a country that is not where you are from and in a language that isn’t your mother tongue just adds another layer of difficulties to the job.”

“I personally would love to just continue acting to the day I die and be able to support myself and live comfortably. I honestly don’t care about fame or becoming a celebrity, I just want to continue doing what I love in the country I call home.”

“The first step to take if you want a career in Korean entertainment would be to study the language as much as you can!”

“If you wait until you come to Korea to start your career from scratch it’s going to be very difficult and stressful. If you come to Korea already with the knowledge and the skills sets of the job you want to do then the only step left would be to start networking and getting in contact with companies to support you and work with you.”

“As a female, it is stressful, you know, because you always think about ‘I gotta look pretty,’ ‘People gotta think I look, you know, nice.’ …It is a little depressing to like … Recently, we got to like see a couple episodes, and it’s kind of hard to see myself looking so like I just woke up and rolled out of bed. …You put a lot of pressure on yourself, especially in Korea, you know, for people to think that you look beautiful…”

Carson Allen might be an American-born, but her love for Korean culture is so huge that she decided to showcase her talents in acting and modeling in Korean entertainment industry.
