New Ask Us video!
So apparently if a girl is acting silly or strange and she has a flower in her hair, Koreans will say things like, “Oh yeah, she has a flower in her hair, that’s why” because those type of strange girls are likely to put flowers in their hair. I’d never heard that until I came to Korea but apparently it’s from a few movies.
Also, I want to thank everyone for supporting me in the Line Webtoon Contest. Although I didn’t win anything, people seemed to like this new series so I will be continuing it on the webtoon publishing platform over there. I also still have the chance to be a featured Line Webtoon featured artist if I get enough support.
While movies often glamorize international relationships, in reality there are a lot of things to think about!
Also just wanted to clarify that when we say “the government doesn’t care if you are married” we meant that the government doesn’t give a crap about your love life and a marriage certificate is not a visa, nor does it guarantee a visa. However, actually being married can make obtaining a visa easier. We will expand on these topics in later videos.
I think I’ve mentioned it before, even though he is taller, my legs are longer. So we switched our new pj pants and he now wears the bright pink ones.
I really don’t like my feet and ankles getting cold when I sleep. Are you a cold feet person that needs long pjs and socks? Or are you the type that needs their feet naked and free all night?
This Commenting on Comments video is a bit late because I’ve been sick.
Also something I forgot to mention is- yes we are still waiting on the publishing company. Departments have been shuffled around and changed so we now have a different design team.. so yup, still waiting…
I have a new webtoon up for the Line Webtoon Challenge League Contest.
It’s the last few days on this contest so it would help me out if you give me a good rating and share my comics. Whatever the outcome I will be continuing this series once a week.
I was just joking and knew there was no Jinju Tower… maybe one day there will be!
This is what we really did for our date night. We finally had some time off and went into Jinju for dinner and a movie. You can see a bit of it in our vlog:

The problem with working at home is that your morning routine kinda blends with your work, checking emails while eating breakfast, moving onto other work and realising you haven’t even brushed your teeth yet.
My inlaws hate the smell of my basil pesto and Parmesan cheese. It’s interesting to be the foreigner with the stinky food..
(We did go brush our teeth after this moment).
What strong smelling food do you have in your country?
New webtoon up for the Line Webtoon Challenge League Contest. I will be continuing this series after it as well, if people like it.
MORE INFO – After you’ve read it: So the first part of this webtoon happened… a white cat froze like that and pretended we couldn’t see it. I have also been thinking about the big feral male cats around here and what they get up to. They are so big and ugly. One of the reasons why I’m so surprised at the cats we have now – because they are so nice and friendly and I can pick up the mother cat easily. Every other cat around here is hardened and scary, so I imagine these males cats smoking, drinking and gambling. So I wondered how the dumb white cat fit in with them and decided that he doesn’t.
Hierarchy in Korean families is much more obvious. I always wonder what Hugh would be like if he had a brother older than him, or even one younger than him. He only has one younger sister (who he is very bossy to).
I’m the eldest out of my siblings but it doesn’t mean much in Australian culture. I never really feel older or that I have any power over my siblings.
Being the only son of course automatically means he is “Number 1 Son” which is a position in Korean society that has a lot of benefits and it’s normal for his mother to dote on him. So when he wants to eat something in particular – he gets it! I notice a big drop in the quality and quantity of dinner when he is not at home. When he goes out with friends, his mother doesn’t bother too much and we just eat ramen or some rice and side dishes. Sometimes it bothers me that his parents don’t eat as well when he isn’t there because I think they deserve nice food as well, and need to look after their health. But it’s so normal here for parents to put their children first. Even their adult married sons.
This is a video just for those that were watching the Korean drama Modern Farmer! We talk about the final episode and the series as a whole.
There are lots more things to talk about, so for those wanting to discuss it, feel free to talk about it here, or over in the comment section on YouTube.
It’s been hard to vlog lately. We have just been working away inside and the weather has been terrible. We braved the cold winds to go for a walk today.
We also put a video up of Simon and Martina’s cat Meemers, for all your cat lovers.
