hi hi hello! since i'm getting closer to finishing him up, i figured it was time to stumble through one of these. so this is zhenyu, a 21 year old originally from beijing but who called a few different places home growing up because his dad is a diplomat and set them on that roving lifestyle path. from 2006 to 2009, his dad was the ambassador to south korea, which is when zhenyu first fell in love with seoul and knew he wanted to return someday. mostly, though, he spent his time in different boarding schools and suffering through that life while trying to make as many friends as possible and being a bit of a troublemaker. eventually, his dream came true, and he got to return to korea three years ago as a student at snu, where he's studying political science. an only child to wealthy parents, he's spoiled in ways he realizes and ways he's still a little blind to, but he tries his hardest to not be a brat. how is that going? i guess we'll all find that out together. he does generally mean well, though, and has a big heart, loves making friends, and being surrounded by people, so he's always down for random conversations. sarcasm and playful banter are right up his alley. and he'll love you even more if you show him pictures of your pets or anyone's pets or animals in general.
so far, wino
is a close friend and fellow boarding school sufferer, and he has a friend in walk
, who he has known since they were kids, so other lines of all kinds would be super loved! he could use a roommate if anyone is looking for one, and i'm still undecided on a part-time job for him, so if anyone needs a coworker or anything that could work, please lemme know because that would be great! other than that, anyone he met during his first time in seoul who either became friends or maybe even penpals, exes or flings of any gender, maybe an attempt at a more serious relationship that had to deal with zhenyu's flightiness, friends who he's decided are other atla characters, adventure buds, 3 am adventure buds, outdoorsy buds, anything, everything!
