Nicholalala Webtoon: Ghost

Hey everyone!

New Nicholalala episode up on Line Webtoon!

GWISHIN

For those that don’t know: I created a new comic series and am now a featured artist on Line Webtoon. Webtoons are hugely popular in Korea and Line Webtoon is the English site for the international market. As you can see, the format is a bit different to other web comics and is really made to suit mobile devices (you can download the app), but also viewable in a browser too. I won’t be posting the webtoons on my blog, instead they will be on Line Webtoon. So make sure you head over there to check them out.

I’ve also made a video talking a little bit about this episode in particular:

More Cookies

Since there isn’t really a baking culture in Korea, for some Koreans (my husband in particular) tasting real home made cookies can be like a religious experience. In Korea, cookies (or biscuits in Australian/British English) are just store bought ones and even ones in cafes are not that good. Whenever we are in Australia Hugh demands more and more cookies. There are a lot of people living at my parents’ house so he was very concerned about other people eating the cookies. Several times I caught him trying to hide the container of cookies in our room.

It’s also interesting comparing childhood experiences with Koreans in regards to cooking. For example, baking is a relatively safe activity to do with children and my siblings and I were able to bake and make cakes and cookies from an early age. Since most homes in Korea don’t have ovens, it isn’t possible to get children baking at a young age and other types of cooking (stove top cooking) are more dangerous for young children. Not only are baking skills not learnt early on in Korea, but even buying simple baking items like measuring cups and wooden spoons can be difficult.

Did you learn how to bake when you were young?

Back in Korea!

Unfortunately we haven’t had nice weather here yet. I can see that it’s spring and it will be very pretty but it’s been raining since we got back.

As we mentioned in the video, I’ve just easily gone back to our normal life here while Hugh has felt a bit weird and maybe some reverse culture shock again. He was the one that fitted easily back into Australian culture, so it’s interesting how that works out.

Back from Australia: Pics post

We are back in Korea! We did film some things in Australia and have a few more vlogs to upload, but mostly it was a holiday for us. We have a bunch of photos to show you (mostly food) and then we’ll be back to normal schedule!

New Nicholalala on Line Webtoon

Nicholalala

NEXT EPISODE OF NICHOLALALA UP ON LINE WEBTOON HERE!

For many people this isn’t actually a new episode as it was on the Challenge League, but it’s the first time it’s up as a featured webtoon. While there will be some episodes from the Challenge League, I will be mixing in new episodes in the coming weeks and gradually it will change over to all new episodes. Please like, share and comment because that really helps me out!

The Nicholalala Webtoon is up every Tuesday at 11pm Korean time on Line Webtoon and you can also download the app! I also have a new Facebook page for my art.

Collecting Questions

We are filming this week with Han and Sophie before we go back to Korea.

If you have any questions for the Ask Korean Guys videos, please ask them there! They can be about Korean culture, Korean dramas, or about Han and Hugh’s lives.

Sophie and I will be filming some videos too, so if you have any questions please ask us too! We will be talking about dating and marrying into Korean culture and raising a child to be bi-lingual.
