It was supposed to be a Q&A episode this week but needing urgent surgery kinda delayed that episode! This episode was originally on the Challenge League before I became a featured artist. Thank you for the likes, shares, comments and rating!

Please give me a nice rating HERE. It really helps me out when my webtoon is in the top ten of it’s category because more people can come across it and hopefully like it!

(Update on surgery situation: I was just released from hospital but still recovering).

Update: Operation 15

Instagram

Hi everyone, just need to update you. I won’t be able to post much on the blog for the next week because I’ll be in hospital for an operation. Ongoing problems have become too bad and I can’t carry on unless I have surgery. I spent most of today having many tests done because the pain became too much. I think they have ruled out extreme things like cancer, but it’s still bad enough for the doctor to say I need urgent surgery.

Hopefully I’ll make a good recovery and be able to return to making comics and videos. The LINE Webtoons will be the only comics still going up at this point. I’ll update on social media while in the hospital.

Have you used Korean beauty masks before? Hugh has this habit of coming to bed with them on and it freaks me out!

THE REAL DOM & HYO 0

You have probably seen Dom and Hyo’s comics and infographics around but you might not have actually seen them in a video. We were hanging out last Friday and took the opportunity to film a video together. We’d love to film more videos together (and get Hugh and Hyo talking more on camera – maybe they could do a video together!) so if there is anything you’d like us to do, or topics you’d like us to talk about, let us know!

Expensive Kimchi 6

Expensive Kimchi

What things do you hate paying for because you usually get it for free?

Making kimchi is a skill that is not as common with the younger generation and a lot of people are just buying instead of making it. I have heard that a lot is being made in China though, so the quality of ingredients can’t be checked and there are many other factors that can affect the taste. When we get our own place I’ll still try to make kimchi so we don’t need to buy it from the supermarket. Hopefully we’ll still get my mother in law’s kimchi too. If someone supplies you with homemade kimchi you should appreciate it! ^^

Squid Breath 5

Squid Breath

To be fair, he had been eating fresh squid, not dried squid, which doesn’t have the same strong smell. But if I had just been eating mac and cheese he’d be insisting I brush my teeth.

AWESOME ROMANTIC PARKS IN SEOUL 1

This is what we did on my birthday. We just planned to go for a wander and ended up walking through these parks, World Cup Park and Haneul Sky Park. Wonderful place for couples to go on romantic dates because the area is so large, it’s not crowded at all. LOVE IS THE MOMENNNTTT!!! (That’s from a cheesy song from the ridiculous Korean drama The Heirs).

This is probably my most immature episode so far… haha. Thank you guys for the likes, shares, comments and rating. It really helps me a lot. LINE Webtoon is one of the only sites that pays and supports artists, so by reading webtoons on LINE Webtoon and not the sites that steal mangas and webtoons, you are directly helping artists.

New vlog: Filming at EYK Studio and in Hongdae 3

While in Seoul we’ve been working as normal so we don’t actually get to go out that often. If I vlogged everyday it would be just boring footage of us working on laptops haha. On this day we went and filmed in the Eat Your Kimchi studio as Simon and Martina very nicely let us use it and we got to do some stuff in Hongedae.

Hair Model 6

Hair Model

It was my birthday yesterday! One of my presents was a new straightener/styler but because it’s monsoon season I can’t really do much at the moment. The humidity is so bad in Korea at the moment and my poor white girl hair can’t handle it. It frizzes immediately. So instead I used it on Hugh’s hair and gave him wonderful Kpop hair.

ASK KOREAN GUYS WITH JONGDAE 3

It’s great to do videos with Jongdae because he is much younger than Hugh, Daniel and Han, AND he hasn’t done his military service yet, so he gives another perspective. If you have more questions for him, please leave them in the comment section!

Nicholalala Webtoons always have a grain of truth that I expand on and in this episode I wonder about the secret life of mosquitoes. Thank you everyone for the likes, shares, comments and the nice rating! I really appreciate it. When you read webtoons on LINE Webtoon you are supporting one of the only sites that actually supports artists. If you ever see the Nicholalala webtoon on other sites, please know that it is stolen. Please only read on LINE Webtoon.

Okay, it really was Sunny from Girls’ Generation! One second later and Hugh disappeared into the crowd of mostly guys. There is a lot of celebrity stuff in the area of Seoul we are staying in because all the big media companies are here.

KOREA: Dating and Marriage 11

We get many many emails from girls from around the world who have started relationships with Korean guys online and have expected a serious relationship and are distraught when it doesn’t turn out like that. We also get worrying emails from girls who say their online boyfriend – who they have never met – is usually sweet to them but sometimes he makes her uncomfortable or pressures her (with sexual questions) or is bad in some way. To Hugh, it’s very obvious that the Korean guy is just messing with the girl and doesn’t view it seriously at all, but it’s very hard to answer this emails and know that the girl’s heart is probably breaking. So that’s why we want to just warn people in the first place. We always want to make positive videos about international relationships, but we also need to stress that not every relationship is healthy, especially ones with someone they have never met and where the glossy, glitzy world of Kpop and Kdramas has blinded someone from seeing the truth. It got to the point where we needed to address it in a video. I also get messages from girls asking how they can find a Korean husband and the guy being Korean is the most important to them. Hugh secretly frequents chatrooms and conversations online where people from around the world are interested in Korea and sees a lot of people with very idealized views of Korean men and this can manifest in bad ways like hating Korean women and then getting into bad and sometimes dangerous relationships.

It’s very difficult to talk about the stigma of single mothers in Korea… because it sucks… it’s very slowly changing, but it can be very confronting when you realise how deeply ingrained this stigma is. As the world changes and Koreans travel more and live in other countries, there are a lot more babies born out of wedlock but unfortunately the women can be unaware of how it is viewed in Korea. That’s why we want to urge people to be so careful. In Korea it’s still so important to do things the traditional way of getting parents’ approval before getting married and being married before any pregnancy takes place. As Hugh has mentioned before, there is a lack of sex education in Korea, so don’t expect a guy to have protection. Be careful in situations that could lead to an unexpected pregnancy. It could end up being way more difficult than you imagined.

I do also get asked questions from single mothers who are interested in a Korean man in particular and are concerned because they already had children. It depends on the individual, but the social stigma can play a big part, even if they are not in Korea. So in general it’s much harder for single mothers to pursue relationships with Korean men unfortunately. It wasn’t that long ago in western culture that there was a huge stigma as well and to this day there is so much inequality in regards to single parents. Think about how single fathers are lauded for trying so hard for their children and are forgiven for mistakes, while single mothers have terrible assumptions made about them and are held way more accountable. Before judging Korea too harshly we can look at the problems in our own cultures too.

I also wanted to clarify that when we talked about prostitution, we don’t want to put down sex workers because we realise how much sexism and inequality lead to this huge industry. We are definitely of the opinion of legalising and better conditions for sex workers and that Korea should be addressing and stopping sex trafficking and all the problems that are in this huge industry that people turn a blind eye to.

Many many topics come under the broad umbrella of Dating and Marriage, so please let us know if there is one you want us to talk about in particular.
