Sick Dom

So I’m sick now. I had a full day of teaching which was then followed by a school dinner with Korean bar-b-que and of course beer and soju. The PE teachers and vice principal were understanding of my condition, but still gave me about 4 shots of soju. Currently laid out at home and going to watch some tv shows tonight until I fall asleep. So sorry if there is no new full episode until maybe Sunday or Monday. I just don’t have the strength to draw a full toon right now.

One of the things that is great about being sick though is that Hyo is a great nurse. It’s too bad we are not living together (usually doesn’t happen until marriage in Korean culture) because I always feel guilty that I can’t take care of her like she does to me due to her still living at home with her parents.

Whenever I’m sick though, I can count on her to come over and maybe cook something, give me some tea, or just be next to me for some comfort. I always end up feeling better and feeling like superman afterwards. However, me being sick doesn’t stop her from trying to tickle me. I don’t think she will ever give that up no matter my condition. Here’s to Nurse Hyo.

Episode #7

So I’m obsessed with chocolate. I really eat it almost everyday, though I’m trying to “cut back”. Hyo claims that I look possessed when we are walking and I spot a chocolate shop I’ve never seen before. Possessed is a very strong word…very interested is a better term. Here’s something a little embarrassing that happened to me on Valentine’s Day…

Episode #6 한국어

이런 말을 하면 Hyo가 저를 죽이려고 하겠지만 Hyo를 처음 보는 사람들은 그녀가 키가 작다는 걸 먼저 알아채요.
저는 저희 할머니가 작으시다고 생각해왔어요. 그런데 올해 초 Hyo와 미국으로 여행갔을 때 Hyo가 할머니 보다 약간 더 작다는 것을 알았죠.

하지만 작은 키 덕분에 Hyo는 너무 귀여워 보이고 공원같은 곳에서 산책을 할 때 제가 업어주기도 편하답니다.

연애 초기 때 Hyo는 조금 더 커 보이려고 힐을 신었어요.  이번 에피소드는 Hyo의 작은 키에 관한 내용이에요.

Episode #5 한국어

한국어 번역은 자연스럽게 읽히도록 의역된 부분이 많고 한국어를 공부하는 외국인들의 이해를 돕기 위해 쉬운 단어를 사용하려고 노려했습니다. 어색한 부분이 있더라도 너그럽게 봐주세요^^

서로의 사진을 찍을 때면 흥미로운 장면이 펼쳐져요. Dom은 DSLR카메라를 가지고 다니곤 해요 (여행갈 땐 특이 꼭!)

Dom이 Hyo의 사진을 찍으려고 하면 Hyo는 숨어 버리죠.

Hyo는 Dom과 여행 중이거나 안경을 쓰고 있지 않을 때는 Dom이 사진 찍게 그냥 놔두기도 하지만 보통은 그렇게 하도록 놔두지 않기 때문에 언제부턴가 사진을 찍고 찍히는 건 게임같은 것이 되어버렸죠.

그러던 어느 날 Hyo는 Dom이 사진을 못 찍게 할 방법 생각해냈어요.

Our Story

I get many questions about how we met. It’s not exactly the most common combination for relationships…black guy from Detroit, Michigan and a Korean girl from Incheon, Korea.

I came to Korea to teach in April of 2009. Had a wonderful time and decided to come back for a second year at the end of 2010.

In 2011, I decided it was time to step up my Korean language game since I planned on being here a little longer than expected. Looking for language exchange partners online, a nice girl said “hi”, we exchanged emails, met up for a study session, and after a month things just clicked and we ended up dating.

It’s been a pretty fun time since then. I didn’t expect to meet someone so awesome halfway across the world, but hey that’s how life works sometimes. I will share with you the funny, strange, and interesting things that come with a multi cultural relationship like ours.
