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 something while I wait for her for a few minutes, or if we’ve been out all day and her purse really is heavy (especially since I may ask her to put some of my stuff in there lol), then I’ll help carry it the rest of the way home. But carrying it all day? She usually doesn’t carry around a huge purse all the time anyways.

Actually this has never been a big issue for us and it’s basically a running joke where she will act like she’s really tired in order to see if I will offer to carry it. Sometimes I’ll take it jokingly and she’ll take it right back saying “No just kidding :p”…other times I’ll joke around like in the above cartoon.

Anyways, now that I think about it, I’m actually not seeing this in Korea quite as often as I was when I first arrived….maybe it’s changing?

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 Panty Dom” stuck for about a week or so. Hagwons can be….interesting…simply because you get to know the students better because of the smaller classes, and because you see the kids 2-3 times a week vs. once a week in public schools.

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 the phrases I say almost naturally now.

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 dentist, so I will finally go with Hyo at the end of the month.

And my mom is funny like this. She just really cares a lot and Hyo has the same kind of mentality so they got along really great when they met last month.

Episode #8

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 hide it, she will still blame me until she finds it….but that’s my fault haha.

I also might hide from her and try to scare her, but I’m pretty sure she started that and I was just retaliating.

She’s a pretty good sport and likes to joke around too so it works out well. You’re never too old to have a bit of fun and act like a kid sometimes. Have some fun!

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 my grandma lol. But, it makes her look too cute, and it makes her easy to pick up or carry for fun when we are out at the park or something.
When we first started dating, she wore heels often to make herself look a bit taller with me. Here is one of several stories about this subject…
