Quickly Unpack 25

Quickly Unpack

I’ve definitely talked about this before. We are complete opposites with this. When I get home from travelling I want to do nothing. I just to just lay there and relax. Unpacking is too much effort. Mr Gwon, on the other hand, gets all pumped up when he comes home and wants to unpack right away and do laundry and everything. I don’t mind if he unpacks my stuff, but I’m completely happy with leaving the bag there for quite a while.

Are you a quick unpacker or a leave the suitcase for days type of person?

Missing Sister 11

Missing Sister

I think for most of their adult life Mr Gwon’s sister has had more money than him. She was always working in Korea while he travelled around Asia and Australia. Right now she is in Australia, but working hard. She comes back soon though, so I think Mr Gwon is envisioning many presents and things bought for him when she moves back. Luckily for him she is a very nice sister.

Flower in my hair 13

Flower in my hair

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.

Date Night 4

Date Night

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:

Had for Dinner

For the record it was samgyupsal.

I showed him being very sweet last comic so time to show him being annoying!

Actually he isn’t feeling that well today so I’m not sure if we will have a video up today.

Triplets 33

Triplets

This is his thing at the moment…. obsessed with the idea of having triplets. Can’t say that I’m too keen on the idea. The reason why is because he has been watching the tv show Return of Superman where there are some adorable triplets.

What Beer?? 13

Sex Beer

Oh second languages… This one came out of nowhere. It took me so long to understand what he meant. But I have noticed how he can get very lazy with his English with me, because I’m his wife. He will have flawless English with other people but when just with me he expects me to decipher his mumbles, and then gets annoyed when I have no idea (some other wives of Korean guys have said the same thing too haha). So for us, it’s not only deciphering the normal male grunts and mumbles, but we have the added difficultly of it being a second language combined with laziness. Oh well, when I speak more Korean I’ll be able to get him back with my mumbling Korean.

A quote from Mr Gwon 7

Happy New Year!

Today instead of a comic, we have a very special quote from Mr Gwon about something that is very dear to his heart.

Mr Gwon Quote

So deep.

In other news, the comic schedule will be changing in 2015. You might have noticed it was hard for me to keep on top of everything in recent months with the book stuff and other things taking up time. So in 2015 it will only be 3 comics a week, likely Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Video schedule will be the same though with videos on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and sometimes extra videos on other days.

The publishing company is currently saying 23rd of January for the book release! For those that don’t know, this is a book of comics from the blog and new ones for the Korean audience. It’s in Korean with some English subtitles as well. Once we have a confirmed release we will post links where to buy it, will have a giveaway and start planning a book signing in Seoul.

Deodorant 37

Deodorant

Whenever I talk to other Caucasian women married to Korean men often the conversation eventually comes around to ‘What deodorant do you use? Which one is best?’

For those that don’t know, the majority of Korean and Japanese populations have a genetic mutation that means they don’t get the bacteria in their arm pits (because less of a certain sweat gland) that causes BO (body odour) that the rest of the world gets. So they don’t have to wear deodorant and never ever get that smell. That’s why when you do get the (very normal) BO smell and are married to a Korean person you have to be super careful because that smell will be even more offensive to them. Like it sucks in Australia when there are stinky people right? But we are pretty used to that smell even though it’s still gross. Imagine what it’s like for someone that rarely ever has to be around that smell and is suddenly bombarded with it.

Being in Korea means that lately I’ve rarely had to be overwhelmed with that type of body odour because I’m pedantic about not having it myself and I’m just always around Koreans, so when I do come across it in Seoul – wow it’s a shock! I forgot what it’s like. It lingers too. We have got into taxis and there has been a lingering smell and it’s like, “Foreigners have been in this taxi”. It’s something to consider when visiting or living in Korea and Japan – will your body odour cause some problems?

Mr Gwon saying “eww” at me putting deodorant on is just running joke between us. It’s something we always joke about. I am seriously jealous of Koreans not needing deodorant.

Some additional points: I recommend Dove or Rexona Clinical Care deodorants. They are a little bit more expensive but work so much better than normal deodorants. Also, Korean people can still get odours like anyone else- bad breath, feet smell etc, BUT they won’t get that universal BO smell from the armpits that everyone else gets. A few days without showering will produce a milder sour smell rather than the gut-wrenching, kill me now, smell that people can get!

We also joke about whether our kids will inherit the no smell Korean gene or be stuck with the stinky white gene. It’s a lottery and can go either way. I guess we will find out when they hit puberty and we sit them down and be like, “Congratulations!” or “I’m very sorry. You stink. Here’s some deodorant”.

Whatever 17

Whatever

Just a reminder that these comics are an accurate representation of our life. Haha.

I think this is the first time I’ve used a fart joke on the blog, I guess I’m being influenced by the Korean type of humour that I see constantly on dramas and gag concerts etc.

I still don’t know if there is a Korean equivalent of the word ‘whatever’ in English that has the same versatility.

Kiss Me Oppa

He refused to play along. Kissing in public is still pretty embarrassing for him, even though the younger generation is changing. Has anyone really experienced this kiss before? haha

Dumb game I play: to see if he will say I’m pretty when I make hideous faces.

 

He doesn’t…

I remember being young and people saying if you make faces, the wind will change and it your face will stay that way forever. Do you have a saying like that in your country?

Where do they live?

Just a quick comic today! We all say silly things like this sometimes. Check out Grace’s blog Texan in Tokyo!

I’m kinda worried that Hugh was getting some ideas on how to annoy me more after seeing what Ryosuke was doing in some of the comics… oh no.

And our latest vlog!
