Crossed Wires 8

Crossed Wires

I’m used to kilos, so seeing a weight in pounds makes no sense to me and I definitely can’t convert that in my head! (Thank you Google).

In normal conversation we don’t really have trouble understanding each other, but when either of us is muttering there can be some interesting interpretations.

For those that don’t know, we are in Seoul for a month house-sitting (and pet-sitting) for our friends (Eat Your Kimchi) while they do a tour in North America. Which is why Hugh is sitting on a sofa and I was randomly weighing myself, because we don’t have scales (or a sofa) at home.

One Direction 12

One Direction

Those that follow us on Facebook might have noticed a few photos of him with One Direction cardboard cut outs. There have been some around for promoting concerts and their movie and he always wants a photo with them.

I think he is a bit hypocritical. He can be negative about Kpop groups that are marketed at teenagers and easily dismisses them, but he enjoys One Direction! Not a big fan or anything, but likes some songs and we’ll sing them at noraebang (karaoke).

I think it was a One Direction money box or something.

Homeschool 53


This is another one of those times we realise the differences in our childhoods. I wasn’t home schooled but I knew lots of people who were for at least part of their education. So that joke is quite funny to me.

I tried to research a bit on home-schooling in South Korea but mostly got sites for foreigners. I did read it is illegal in Korea, but I’m not sure if that is true. When I ask my husband he just says something about “duty of education”.

From what I can gather foreigners are allowed to home-school their children but Korean children must attend school. Leave a comment if you know more about this.

Were you home-schooled? Do you know other people who were home-schooled? Any other jokes about being home-schooled?

Jerk 15


Mr Gwon isn’t a really moody guy BUT he does have some strange moods sometimes. Sometimes I think he likes to pretend he is the lead male in a Korean drama. You know how they are usually jerks at first?

It’s really not romantic, trust me, it’s just annoying. I should be nice to him because he gave me one chewy mint?! I didn’t draw it in the comic because it would have been too long but he actually made me eat the half first before he gave me a full one. I know he is laughing on the inside but he does it with a really straight face.

Aww Nice Comments 21


Cheeky! And a hypocrite because he makes fun of me responding to comments and then the next moment is like, “I have to go talk to my fans!” and goes on his Facebook Page.

When I started my blog I never thought I’d get such lovely comments and that people would enjoy my blog so much, so I really really appreciate all your comments.

Crappy Creepy 18

Crappy Creepy

I accumulate so many coins in my purse. I don’t care but it annoys him so every now and then he’ll count them out like that.

He has been saying “crappy” like “creepy” a lot lately and it always sounds funny because it can completely change the meaning.

I often read a blog called Crappy Pictures which is a funny parenting blog. But when my husband refers to it he always says “Creepy Pictures” which sounds really wrong! Especially when it’s such a cute, funny blog.

Does anyone else hate using coins and having to count out the right number while the shop assistant is waiting? My husband often scolds me when I just use a note to pay for something when I obviously had enough in coins. And then I get even more coins from the change.

Cook Something 32

Cook Something

I fall for this every time. He hates cooking (though he doesn’t mind cleaning) and will do whatever it takes to make me cook instead of him. This is not a representation of Korean men in general. I actually know many Korean guys who love cooking and are really passionate about food. My husband is passionate about food, but only eating it, not cooking it.

I realise after that he set me up with the “Oh I’m a sad little boy just eating one tin of tuna” act because he’ll do his “happy I love you hugging dance” after I agree to cook something.

Deliberately Awkward 12

deliberately awkward

Quick comic with just me in it (then a new Mr Gwon Recommends will be up later).

Even being married I can sometimes be like, “Go away couples!” I think maybe a lot of people are feeling that with Valentine’s Day coming up?

I was rewarding myself with bad food the other day because it was quite stressful dealing with website issues. It was amazing having so much traffic but frustrating dealing with the web hosting company who took my site down because of the traffic. So during that time I went and sat by the water to relax. I’m sure it was totally annoying for the couple but I can be deliberately awkward like that. hehe. I really wanted to sit in that place.

Practising Singing 32


This is his obsession at the moment. Yesterday he spent hours singing along. I don’t mean casually singing along for fun, I mean seriously trying to remember all the words and hit all the notes. He is not a bad singer, but he does it with earphones in so all I’m hearing is his voice, so it can be kinda funny. But yeah…. he is a much better singer than me actually.

As you know, I usually don’t do a comic on Sundays, but since the fan base is growing I thought I might try to have something uploaded every single day. I make about 6 comics a week, what’s one more? Haha.
