Han and Hugh are back together for Ask Korean Guys!
We will be filming some more Ask Korean Guys in the coming weeks so please ask your questions now!
This vlog is from the day before we flew out to Sydney.
We had a bunch of meetings and then we had dinner with our friends Simon and Martina from the very famous Eat Your Kimchi. Although we stay with them often, we are both usually quite busy and don’t actually get the chance to go out for dinner that often, but this time we did!
It’s still been warm enough to go swimming! It is Autumn in Australia but it’s much easier to go swimming here than in Korea. I’m getting all my swimming in now before we go back to Korea. Not sure why Mr Gwon felt the need to cover his pecs when it was just us in the backyard pool.
I’m sure a lot of you know who Hyunwoo Sun is, the founder of the excellent Talk to Me in Korean. He has an adorable baby boy called Joon, and this was the first time Alice met him.
Unfortunately Han is the one missing from this meet up. He had to go back to Australia for work, but Sophie and Alice are staying in Korea for a few more weeks.
We have an exciting announcement! I am going to be a featured artist on Line Webtoon for my Nicholalala webtoon! Thank you so much to everyone who liked and commented and shared it, you really helped me become selected. Some people might be wondering why my Nicholalala webtoons disappeared, but it wasn’t because I had given up, it was because I had been told that I had been selected so I no longer needed to post on the Challenge League page, but wasn’t allowed to tell anyone yet. But now the secret is out! There will be Nicholalala webtoons once a week on Line Webtoon.
This new webtoon schedule won’t affect the My Korean Husband comics too much and they will still be 3 times a week, as well as our usual videos.
Thanks again everyone!
Here is the vlog update:
He admitted that he might have really thought the word was “bride’s mate” instead of “bridesmaid”. Which is completely understandable! The bridesmaids are the friends of the bride and in Australia we use the word “mate” for friend.
Is there a word that you have been saying wrong and then one day just finally realised?
We are now at my parents’ house so are settling back into a somewhat normal schedule for the next 2 weeks. We have been super busy in Seoul, then travelling to Australia and then with wedding stuff in Sydney. I don’t know if videos will be on our normal schedule but we will putting more up from now.
Just a quick update video! We are currently editing our backlog of vlogs as well, so they will be coming soon…. hopefully… This very short video that would normally take about 10 minutes to upload on our “slow” Korean countryside internet took 90 minutes on this Australian internet haha.
We’ve been quiet this week because we’ve been super busy getting ready to go to Australia, as well as dealing with some health problems (everything is fine, don’t worry) and we had some visitors!
Subscribe to the vlogging channel! More than just vlogs will be coming to this channel soon. And an announcement soon! Stay tuned!
We are heading to Australia next week! We will stay there for a month. I’ll be bridesmaid at a friend’s wedding and we’ll catch up with friends and family. Hugh is packed already! In another comic I showed how he quickly unpacks when he gets home from a trip, but he also likes to be packed early. I’m a last minute packer though. What about you guys?
I think part of the reason for early packing this time is that he is so excited to go back to Australia. We are not sure how much blogging we will be able to do while there because we will be busy, actually from this week on we are quite busy. So please bear with us over the next month as we deal with busy schedules (and unfortunately some health problems).
We live on a farm, in the middle of nowhere… sometimes annoying me is his only entertainment. I often give a good reaction as well. If you watch our vlogs and see him harassing me I’ll do the “Nooo! Don’t!!” and give him a good response to his teasing. I’ve gone through times where I’ve done the blank face and ignored it (because really I don’t mind that much) but it doesn’t matter if I give a reaction or not, he will still do it. He just genuinely likes annoying me, so I might as well make him laugh by reacting to his antics.
However! His sister has just arrived from Australia, where she was for 2 years. She came home yesterday and already they have been bickering, so I think I don’t have to bear the brunt of his antics now.
Don’t judge him too harshly, I definitely have my hyperactive moments of being super annoying and harassing him. He just doesn’t make comics about it.
Jeongwol Daeboreum is the first full moon of the lunar new year and there are lots of traditions, customs and celebrations across Korea. In years gone by there would have more celebrations in the countryside like fires (burning the rice fields) but these days those big fire celebrations are only in bigger towns and cities and are big organised events. Nowadays local people in the area come together like this for Jeongwol Daeboreum.
I expected to just be an observer, but of course I stand out in rural Korea so they were excited to drag me into the singing and dancing. It was actually a lot of fun, but although my brother is an amazing drummer, I have no rhythm at all! This group of locals preformed like this again and again around all the small villages in this area.
As I’ve mentioned before, it doesn’t snow much in this region of Korea. As the weather started to get warmer, I was convinced that we were not getting any decent snow this winter (there had only been a tiny bit of snow at night a few times). It was already changing to spring. We woke up this morning to the surprise of very heavy snow. My mother-in-law woke us up early in the morning and we had a look but went back to sleep, convinced it would be gone by mid-morning. But it wasn’t, and it had blanketed the countryside. It ended up being a perfect snow day. I know that people complain about the snow, especially in the cities, but this was perfect for us. We got one day of enjoying the snow before it disappeared, and without any of the difficulties snow brings. Here is our vlog:
It’s now late at night and the weather has changed. The snow has gone and an icy wind is blowing through the valley. It’s now so much colder. I hate the wind and how cold it is and really preferred the snow. The snow falls quietly, while the wind is so strong and keeps us awake at night. But at least we made good memories on our one snow day!
