Korean Englishman Farm Visit Behind the Scenes 2

When Josh, Ollie and Joel needed a farm to film on, we were only too happy to volunteer. It also gave us the chance to head back to the countryside for a weekend.

The Korean Englishman channel is HUGE in Korea. It was school holidays when they visited, but I’ve been giggled to myself seeing some comments from local high school students who now realise that Josh and Ollie and Joel were right near their school but they didn’t know!

Dilemma 3


I was always quite skinny growing up and into my 20’s, but due to health problems I’ve been on medication that causes some weight gain. Not a huge amount, but when you are used to being a certain size and then suddenly not being that size it’s a bit of a surprise. And suddenly not having jeans fit can be a rude shock. I’m much more sympathetic to those that have trouble losing weight due to genetics problems now.

While Hugh has been a stocky guy for most of his adult life, he was very skinny as a young boy. So much so that he was constantly in the hospital and eventually his family went to an oriental medicine practitioner who gave him medicine to gain weight. Since then he has no trouble gaining weight or muscle and it probably saved his life. But he does love food so much! It’s one of his passions in life. Especially now that we live in Seoul and there is so much food easily available. We eat healthy in general… but there’s just so much to eat!

Learning Spanish with Kpop? 0

In this video we are joined by our friends Double Trouble en Corea, who teach Hugh some Spanish (with the help of some BIGBANG songs in Spanish too). Hugh has been wanting to learn Spanish for a long time, and he is slowly picking up some words and phrases.

Discussing Foreign Wives in Korea 0

In this video we talk about these types of messages that we get where women are asking us to help them find a Korean husband. People sometimes assume that it must be Kpop fangirls, but there is something much more serious going on. We talk about the arranged marriage industry in Korea and all the problems that have stemmed from it.

There are so many aspects of this topic that we can’t cover in one video, so please understand that if we miss something important it’s not that we aren’t aware of it, it’s just hard to cover everything. We are also aware of our own privilege, of Hugh being a Korean man and me being a western woman in Korea. We want to be as sympathetic and understanding as possible and realise this is a really complicated issue. If we offend, it’s completely unintended. We do also have more exposure to these types of situations than those living in cities. Even within Hugh’s own family there were foreign wives that ran away, some of our neighbors were those abusive families, but also some positive stories from our area as well. We know things are getting better, but still more needs to be done for multiculturalism in Korea and for families like this.

Bus BTS 1


This BTS song is Hugh’s favourite song at the moment and he whispers it in my ear whenever he can. The lyric translation is “burn it up”. Kinda creepy!

Snapshot of my day: Chuseok 0

I filmed a snapshot of my day video on Chuseok. We traveled back to the countryside for it. There was the ancestral rites memorial for deceased family members in the morning, then lots of food, relaxing and visits from family. I put on my hanbok to do a big bow to Hugh’s parents and we took the opportunity to take some photos in a field of flowers near the village.

Ghosts and Korean Folklore 0

This was a very spur of the moment video. We were showing a friend around the village and started talking about ghosts so I filmed a bit with my phone. We covered only a few ghost stories in this area as there are many more. There are many falling down, creepy houses too. Although I make a webtoon that has ghosts and supernatural beings, I’m actually quite a skeptical person and take these stories with a grain of salt. (But I mean… Of course all the characters in the Nicholalala webtoon are real!!! haha).

Seoul Life: Google Campus and Interviews 0

Han and Sophie and Alice, who have previously been in our videos, have moved back to Korea! They are living not too far from us and it’s wonderful to have them in Korea. In this video I have some little clips from hanging out with them (though Sophie is off camera here) and also we visited Google Campus in Seoul. We also had some meetings and radio interviews and some last minute packing for heading back to the countryside for Chuseok.

Earthquake in Korea? 0

This literally just happened tonight and we were so surprised. It’s rare to get an earthquake in Korea and apparently this was the biggest one that has ever happened. There seems to be some minor damage around and some injuries reported at this time. The biggest shock was not knowing what we should do if there is a bigger one. There are no procedures or safety regulations in Korea. We don’t expect earthquake here. There isn’t preparation for what to do and buildings can be so much older when compared to Japan that has new buildings that withstand earthquakes. It’s still early but news outlets are reporting that Korea may no longer be in the safe zone when it comes to earthquakes. The news is reporting there may be more aftershocks too.

We didn’t have much food in the house today and usually we order groceries online, so we thought it was the perfect time to review some convenience store lunchboxes again. It’s definitely a growing market in Korea. For years there has been the triangle gimbap and instant ramen available in convenience stores but the option of having a proper meal for a cheap price is really appealing to a lot of people.

We’ve mentioned before that Hugh is a social butterfly and has many friends. He recently vlogged a night out and it gives a glimpse into the dynamic Hongdae night life. This was a Monday night!

I wasn’t feeling that well so I stayed home… we have Netflix now! Anyway in this video you can see the Korean style night life of moving from place to place all night. Restaurants, bars, street food etc.
