Episode #64: Can You Kiss Me?


Dried squid is just one of those snacks I will never get used to here. I tried it once when I first arrived in Korea years ago, and I never wanted to try it again. I have never tried beondegi, and I probably never will. The smell from those also get to me.

This is one of those cultural differences that can often happen when it comes to food. I love a lot of Korean food, but some things I’m just not quite fond of (kimchi). Hyo likes a lot of food from back in the states, but she will not go near peanut butter or any type of peanut butter and chocolate combination (blasphemy!) We are both convinced we will develop a sudden taste for the foods we don’t like at some point in the future.

    Found your site from My Korean Husband. I really like your stuff. I have a topic for you guys to talk about. What are some things you have had to overcome (or you already possessed the quality or characteristic or viewpoint) to make your relationship work? What prejudice have you encountered as a intercultural couple and how have you or do you deal with it? Thanks for sharing 😀

    Nothing like kimchi-squid breath to set the mood. I guess that’s where the soju comes in.

    Totally agree! I don’t eat dried squid but I tolerate others eating it haha. But I would not want to kiss my husband if he had been eating beondegi. I have tried eating it one time! It was………….. not good……

      haha same thoughts. I’ve only seen Hyo eat it once, so not too worried. A few of my expat friends love beondegi though!
