1. What do you think of humanity?
That's a broad question. I could say lots of things. One thing I will say is that I think people's behavior is more predictable than a lot of people seem to think. It's not an exact science, but it's also not immeasurable.
2. Has the human race done more to create or to destroy beauty in the world?
I lean towards create, because humanity has created more diverse forms of beauty. Of course, I also recognize that beauty is subjective within reason.
3. Would you prefer a short and exciting life or a long and boring one?
What does boring mean? I think I spend lots of time doing things that others consider boring, like reading about random stuff on the internet, so if it's something like that then I would be fine with a long and boring life.
4. What do you regret most in your life?
I can't really think of any huge regrets I've made in my life. I can think of a bunch of small ones, like not getting to know someone better or taking a class that I ended up disliking.
5. The enemy or my enemy is my friend. Do you agree?
Depends on context. But that can lead to a dangerous road.
6. Do you feel out of place in society or time?
Not particularly. I rather like being in this age with all this technology afforded to us. I'm not a Luddite.
7. Have you ever seen ghosts, spirits, aliens, or witnessed some kind of paranormal activity?
No.
8. Is morality universal, or relative?
My instinct was to say universal. But then I thought of how a murder of a dangerous combatant would probably be morally acceptable. But then there are other crimes that I can't really find a context that justifies it, such as rape. So my cop-out answer is that it depends, but lean more towards universal.
9. There are 3 wells: Beauty, Wealth, and Love. Which one would you drink from? Pick only one, and why?
First, what does the well of love do? Does it make me a better lover, either physically or emotionally? Does it make me more attractive to others? (Doesn't that kind of eliminate the point of beauty?) Does it mean I become better at finding a match? But I would probably choose wealth, mostly because it goes further than the other two. I think with all three, I would be satisfied with a moderate 'amount.' But wealth can be used to support my friends and family to a greater extent than the other two.
10. How important is Inter in your daily life?
If there's games coming then I usually try to make time to watch them. I usually visit FIF and catch up on Inter news at least once a day. So I wouldn't say that it's of utmost importance, in that I don't spend every minute of every day thinking about Inter, but I still get my daily dose of Inter.

Thanks

-Who do you find to be the most attractive Korean girl?
A younger me would have said Hyun Young. But after briefly googling her I can see that she has either aged quite a bit or my eyes were not right then, and since I don't really keep up with pop culture much these days I don't really know anymore. I do find IU pretty cute though.
-Favourite Inter loss?
I will substitute favorite with meaningful and choose the Lazio match at the end of last year. It showcased Mancini's phenomenal tactical skills, served as a wake-up call to Inter fans and players who had started dreaming about the scudetto, and displayed the problem with having Felipe Melo as a starter.
-Favourite Harambe?
There is only one Harambe.
-Favourite Mancini moment? here's an example, switching to a back 3 against Wolfsburg and getting promptly raped.
Either when he switched to 3-5-2 against Fiorentina, playing Perisic at wing-back :)yao:) and giving Nikola Kalinic a hat-trick, or when he played Carizzo against Wolfsburg, who almost singlehandedly gifted the tie to Wolfsburg.
-Rank the following in order of best to worst: Schelotto, Kuzmanovic, Botta, Belfodil
Kuzmanovic, Belfodil, Botta, Schelotto.
-If you had to put all your money on one of our transfers to dismally flop, who would you put that money on? Mine's Ansaldi. I reckon we'll be seeing Nagatomo/Santon until the day I die, hopefully not too far away.
Can I pick Caner Erkin, since he's flopped already? But after an extremely cursory analysis of our transfers, I'd pick one of the Portuguese speakers, either Gabriel Barbosa (I am not calling him Gabigol) or Joao Mario. Joao Mario seemed to struggle to make an impact at a fairly defensive Euros (mirroring the types of teams he will be up against), while I suspect Barbosa will have trouble adapting in his first season out of Brazil.
-If you could perform a straight swap between Kondogbia and Kovacic, no money involved, no questions asked, would you do it?
Yes. I know people are excited because Kondogbia is stronger than Kovacic and also a dribbler, but his passing simply does not compare. Yeah, there are people who will point out that Kovacic didn't score that many goals or provide that many assists, but his 'safer' passing, i.e. not the killer through pass but the passes to keep possession, were excellent. Kondogbia is struggling with more basic passing. Kovacic clearly has the ability to pick out passes – it was raw, but it was a matter of refining it. Imo that kind of passing ability is a rarer gift than Kondogbia's physicality.



¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Describe me a fight you got into during school?
I actually struggled for a while to think of one, because I didn't get into many fights at school. It didn't seem like a good idea when most of the kids were bigger than me. But~ in 6th grade, I was kicking a ball around with a friend during lunchtime. I saw a kid that I didn't get along with, and I kicked the ball a little harder than normal and hit him on the head. He came after me, but I was faster than him, and he was caught by my friend who had been kicking the ball with me. My friend put him in a headlock and started clobbering his ear. (They also didn't get along). So I guess that wasn't a real fight, because I didn't really do anything other than instigate it, but it's the closest thing I can think of for now.

Would you rather lose an arm or a leg?
Arm

What is your earlier memory?
The earliest thing I remember is watching news reports of a Korean Air airliner crash on TV.

What annoys you most about FIF and/or FIF's members?
Bad arguments. I don't mean arguments I disagree with, because there are plenty of arguments that I disagree with that are backed with logic and evidence, and I can see why someone might side with such arguments. But arguments like 'you're not a coach' are completely useless imo.

Do you enjoy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?
No. It's too sweet, and I hate how soggy the bread becomes.

How often do you eat kimchi?
Just about every day, quite often multiple times a day.

What is your favourite Korean movie?
As I mentioned I'm not a huge movie person. If I had to pick one it might be Tajja (I don't know if the film has a different English name). Not a 'great' film, but a fun one.

Favourite sport other than football?
In terms of viewing, I like tennis. For something I actually do, it would be ping pong or skiing.

Dream Holiday/vacation destination?
Don't really have one.

If you die and get reincarnated into any animal. What animal do do you choose?
Raven. Can fly, fairly intelligent, adaptable (so not struggling for survival).

Money is not an issue Would you rather Inter sign Dybala, Kane, Martial or Coman?
Dybala. His skills would complement the likes of Perisic and Brozovic nicely, he's the most adapted to the league, and he has the added benefit of taking away one of Juventus's best players. Kane fulfills the first criteria, while Martial (if early season form is any indication) and Coman still seem a bit too raw.

Do your parents want you to marry a Korean girl? If so, how does this sit with you?
I don't think they do.

Rice or potatoes?
Rice

Coke or Sprite?
Coke

Cats or dogs?
Cats

Money or free time?
Free time

Dream vehicle?
I'm not really into cars, and I don't drive while I'm at college anyway, so this isn't something I've thought a lot (or at all) about. I used to be a bit of an aviation enthusiast, so a private plane sounds cool on first thought, but it would be extremely outlandish, unnecessary, and impractical. So just any car that has reasonable quality would be fine by me.

What job did 8 year old you want to do when you grew up?
Pilot

Most hated club outside of Italy?
Real Madrid

Most hated player outside of Inter?
Chiellini maybe?

Cordoba or Matrix? Not in terms of who was the better player just who you liked more
Matrix

Favorite Inter kit?
The dark blue kit from 2013–14. Too bad the season itself wasn't all that great...

Derby d Italia or Derby della Madonnina?
Derby d'Italia. For whatever reason Juventus have always felt like the biggest rival.

Build a new stadium or Renovate San siro while kicking BBilan out?
I suspect it would be more efficient to just build a new stadium.

Worst Inter game you ve ever seen?
After watching Inter for the past several years, there is no way I could pick one single game. That game where we were handily beaten by Juventus's reserve team might take it though.

Ass or boobs?
Honestly I prefer good proportions over any one particular body part. I don't want someone who looks like they're hiding a watermelon or two under their clothes.

Weed or booze?
Depends on the setting. Booze if I want to go do something, weed if I'm just trying to chill.

If you could bring any player you want into this inter side who would it be?
No restrictions or anything? The obvious answer is someone like Messi, although given our horrendous group of full-backs, maybe someone like Marcelo would be a better choice.

No. I went to a game of baseball many years ago because my cousins (who are big baseball fans) from Korea were visiting and there happened to be a baseball game during their stay featuring some Korean player. I've watched a few Super Bowls, since it's almost like a religious holiday here. But neither sport really appealed to me.

Can't think of a restaurant that clearly stood out to me above all others. Maybe Shiroi Sushi.

As for best KBBQ, Booil Galbi is great for ribs but expensive. Pro Samgyupsal and Deungdae both have really good pork. Chosun Ok has bad service and is extremely crowded at peak hours, but food is really good and reasonably priced, and it's BYOB if you like that.

Dinner at a decent place would be like $15-$20. A nicer place probably around $30-$50. Like even a Chipotle burrito in the city will end up being around $9.
