I am keen on music. One of my favorite singers is Hye-sang Park who is a vocal singer in South Korea. Several years ago, I traveled to South Korea and spent my summer vacation with my family members. During my stay there, I was lucky enough to go to her live concert.
I was attracted by her warm and absorbing voice. I felt excited when she interacted with her fans. After the live concert, I got a chance to take photos with her. That was my first time getting close to her. She was such an excellent singer that I wanted to know more about her.
I searched online and read a lot of articles about Hye-sang Park. When Hye-sang Park was in high school, she was a confident girl. Due to her beautiful voice and hard work, she graduated from the Juilliard School in America. After that, she became a famous opera actress. She won a lot of prizes at home and abroad. Also, she has got a lot of fans.
I admire her very much because she not only has a charming voice but also has a pleasant personality. Although I only met her once, I take her as my role model. I will try my best to pursue my dream and become an opera artist like her.
1. How do people make friends in China?
There are three main ways in China. First of all, the most common places where people make friends are probably schools or workplaces. People spend a lot of time with their classmates or colleagues so they have more chances to make friends with them. Also, people usually make friends when attending some social activities, such as meetings, parties or summer camps, and so on. What’s more, with the aid of social media, many people make friends online with strangers or foreigners.
2. On what occasions do people like to make friends?
People like to make friends when their friends or family members introduce someone to them. It is more reliable to know new people on such occasions. Besides, people tend to make friends when they participate in some important events, like sports games, weddings or seminars, because it is easy for them to know someone who has similar hobbies or work experience. Moreover, people like to make friends on social media where they can tell something that they may be unwilling to share in their real life.
3. Is it important to have the same hobbies and interests when making friends?
Yes, I think it is very important. When people have a lot in common, they will talk about their hobbies and interests. At the same time, they can do similar activities together, which will strengthen their friendship. However, if people don’t like the same things, they may not know what to talk about or what to do when they spend time together. It is impossible for them to keep their friendship for a long time.
4. What qualities make true friends?
First of all, true friends are honest, trustworthy and genuine. They never tell lies so people can count on them all the time. Also, true friends are good listeners who express empathy for others. They will always show up during tough times. People will feel comfortable when asking them a favor. Apart from that, true friends respect other people’s boundaries and make theirs clear. They will receive permission first before offering their advice or opinion about someone else’s life decisions or choices.
