Hugh and his sister watched this drama, so I saw bits and pieces of it but didn’t watch all of it. I was glad to see that a popular drama has a lead male that wasn’t another rich son of a CEO, like almost all other dramas. Apparently it has sparked an interest in men in the special forces though.
What I find a bit ironic is that now there is this interest in how soldiers speak and even some women (who don’t have to do compulsory military service) have started trying to talk like a soldier. Previously, men who finished their service could be self conscious about their automatic soldier speech, especially because people might make fun of it. But now it was in a drama, it’s suddenly “cool”. How fickle people are…haha.
Speaking of name changes, it used to be hard to change your name in Korea, but these days it is quite easy. I don’t think Hugh should change his name though…
This donkatsu (pork cutlet) is huge! Hugh and his friend try this challenge where you have to eat this massive donkatsu and rice in 20 mins or pay about $15.
There was no way I was going to try this challenge, but because we were staying with our friends Simon and Martina (of Eat Your Kimchi) while in Seoul, Simon decided he would try it as well after hearing Hugh talk about it. You can see their video here.
This video was not planned, we just happened to go to this pension with friends who were getting wedding photos taken. We discovered this pension was so nice and really adorable so we decided to make a video. Pension, which is the Konglish name for this type of accommodation vary wildly in Korea, so this was definitely more of an upmarket one. It is also a ‘healing’ pension, which means that it’s not the type of place for big groups of people to go and be loud and BBQ. It’s for couples or families to have some quiet time, enjoy the countryside and relax and maybe do some crafts.

Hugh and Joel (who you might have seen in some of 영국남자 Korean Englishman‘s videos) talk about perceptions of both British guys and Korean guys, especially the fantasy gentleman aspect of it. Does it affect them negatively or positively? Does it change how they now interact with people?
Joel was really fun to film with so let us know if you enjoyed this video so we can do more like it.
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.

Nichola- Mr Gwon is a great husband and a great guy… he just used to be a bit of a bad boy! I’m glad I didn’t know him when he was a teenager!
There are lots of markets in the countryside but sometimes we just go to the local supermarket.
English subs will be up later… You can see how basic my Korean is.
