I'd like to introduce myself to someone by using "a good side of me" and "a weak side of me". The reason I do this is that I know I can use "an another side of Korean drinking culture" when I need to bring up another sub topic of something that I'm currently discussing. So, am I right to do this?

I'm more of a person who enjoys spending time by myself than a person who likes to spend time with others. And a good side of me is that I don't have many friends but I do care about my close friends more than anyone does their friends. And a weak side of me is that I feel jealousy a lot and that makes my relationship with my girlfriend worse than it would otherwise be.

I know I can use "*an another side of Korean drinking culture" . . .

No, you should un-know that. An doesn't go with another. It should rather be another side of Korean drinking culture, which would need additional polishing depending on what that phrase is supposed to mean in your context.

Why over-complicate stuff? You can just say

One good thing about me is my . . .


The best thing about me is that I . . .

Alternatively, you could use

One of my most prominent upsides/downsides is . . .

One of my strengths/weaknesses is . . .

Or other constructions, such as:

For strengths:

I'm gifted in the sense that I . . .

I have a gift for [VERB]ing . . .

My forte is . . .

I have an outstanding talent . . .

For weak spots:

I'm incapable of [VERB]ing . . . (clearly).

I have an Achilles heel about [VERB]ing . . .

The chink in my armor is that I . . .

And a weak side of me is that I feel *jealousy a lot and that makes . . .

Jealousy is a noun. Don't forget that you need an adjective there. Therefore, use jealous, or envious, but not *jealousy, *envy etc.
