I'm 18 years old and I have to make the decision of my life. My mom lives in Spain and she wants me to go live with her with a residence and after a year I'll get Citizenship. However, I've been offered a scholarship to study in South Korea for 5 years. 1 for learning korean, the other 4 to study in a university. I don't know what to decide, because I love Korean culture so much. I want to go to Korea! But everyone tells me I should go to Spain to live with my mother. What should I do?
I want to go to Korea!
Meaning, you've answered it already.

If you want to go to Korea you should go. I'm sure your mother would understand and would want you to do what makes you happy. I think you would regret turning down what sounds like a great opportunity in Korea.
Well, how long have you not seen your mother and when will your studies begin in Korea? if you still have time then why not pay a visit to your mom for a few weeks or month and then go to Korea to pursue your dreams and goals... I mean, thats what I would do.
I don't know how it is in Spain, but I think most countries will let family visit or even immigrate with a family member sponsoring them so it's not like you will never see her again. Follow you dream, go to Korea for 5 years and if you still want to become a Spanish citizen and be with her, I'm sure that'll be possible. Is there another compelling reason you would hesitate?
