Episode #28: Carry My Purse?

            Carrying purses is one of those things that is quite common in Korea. You will see quite a few Korean men carrying their girlfriend’s purse down the street. Me? Nada. Oh sure, I have no problem holding it while Hyo needs to go do […]

Episode #27: No Pantie Dom

So yeah this was said by one of my silliest students back when I was teaching at a hagwon last year. The song stuck around the school until I left 5 months later SMH. Hyo really got a kick out of the story, and with her prowess for nicknames, “No […]

Episode #11: 오리 Duck

Mistakes like these are common and it’s pretty funny when they happen for both of us. But it also helps us learn as well. This was when my Korean was still not very good (still not that much better now IMO), but I basically learned from Hyo a lot of […]

Episode #9

Yes…I hate going to the dentist. Despite that, my teeth are actually pretty healthy thanks to regular dental visits and braces when I was young. I have never been to the dentist in Korea as I prefer my home dentist, but I haven’t been able to go to my home […]

So Hyo often likes to call me a big baby because I like to do things like this (hiding socks, shoes, hats, etc). I just find it funny to do sometimes and it just comes to me. Sometimes when she actually forgot where she put something, and I really didn’t […]

Episode #6

She is gonna kill me for this, but one of the first things people notice about Hyo is how short she is. I thought my grandma was short, and we recently returned from a trip back to the states where Hyo met my her. And she was slightly shorter than […]

Episode #5

So taking pictures of each other can be very interesting. I like to carry my DSLR around (especially on trips). I usually don’t mind taking pictures (and she loves to sneak to get them), but she usually tries to hide when I try to take one of her. She does […]

Episode #4

There are a variety of Korean foods that I like…Kimbap is one of those foods. It’s good for Koreans when they’re on the go and need a quick meal to eat. It’s also easy to eat and comes in many varieties. You can find vegetables such as carrots, green leaves, […]

Episode #3

So now that you know the story of how it all started, I’ll start sharing some…interesting things that have happened. It just comes with the territory when two people from different cultures come together in a relationship. One of the most common is the misunderstanding or mispronunciation of words from […]
