Ask the Wives of Korean Guys 1

We filmed a whole bunch of videos in the final weeks of being in Australia. Here is just one of them where Sophie and I answer some of your questions.

How to annoy your husband: Ask questions that have no right answer.

Still organising our stuff here. I spent most of yesterday sleeping because we’ve had about a month of being super busy and my body just finally crashed. It’s been hard to draw comics as well because we don’t have a desk. We’ve ordered a long one where we can sit side by side and work together. It still feels like we are just on holiday though.

Korea, like many other Asian countries, has a superstition about 4 because it sounds similar to the word for death (in Sino-Korean).

Of course tetraphobia is not the only thing needed for living in Korea. I’ve been thinking about how grateful I am that I visited Korea many times before moving here, because it has made the transition a lot easier. If I had never been to Korea before, I would be very overwhelmed. Even more so because we are in a rural area and not a city. I’m sure there will be hard times ahead though.

My visa was extended easily enough thankfully. The visa system here is different to the Australian system. I came to Korea with a 3 month partner visa which has now been extended to 1 year. We just extend again when we need to.

No Warm Hat

Now who is the stubborn idiot?!  Me!!

I think I was tricked the first day we arrived in Korea because it wasn’t tooo cold so I thought “I can handle this!”

Then it got a lot colder. Okay, warmth over fashion!


G-Dragon, always known as Han…. is back attempting to give you some advice. Get ready to cringe!

No Winter Coat

You may have noticed my husband has a stubborn streak… well it came out when we arrived in Korea. It was about 5 degrees Celsius when we landed and it got colder and colder. However, he refused to wear anything other than jeans and a tshirt until we arrived at his parents’ house at night! So he travelled from Busan to Jinju to his home town in short sleeves! I’m sure it was below 0 by the time we arrived but he wanted to prove that he could do it.

Moved to Korea

Now that we’ve done the big move we will hopefully be back on a normal posting schedule. Here is a quick update!
