And now for something more light-hearted… but weird… this is a very quick video where you can’t see much but I filmed because of Hugh’s weird laugh. I’ve never heard him laugh like this before! He was laughing at my karate chop attempts (this was after he had tried jiu jitsu moves on me). This was just few seconds of a 10 minute laughing fit.
my korean husband
He has been trying out Jiu-jitsu with a friend and I could feel him mentally going though the moves instead of actually cuddling me.
In other news: I have quite a lot of stuff to do for the book in the next few weeks. The good news is that it should be released soon. The bad news is that comics will be quite sporadic for a little while. Sorry guys!
Hey guys. There won’t be a comic today because I’m spending some time painting instead. I have a few commissions backed up. (For those interested in buying a painting or commissioning me to paint something just send me an email.)
Check out yesterday’s vlog though!
I am constantly stepping over him! He sits on the floor, usually in the middle of the room and usually really spread out so that it’s hard for me to move around the room. One day I’m going to end up stepping on his laptop.
Here are our vlogs in Iksan. We are here for the Iksan Ten Million Chrysanthemum Festival (익산천만송이국화축제). Information here.

Serious topic! As with any serious topic, there are many aspects and we can’t cover all of them. We talk about where we feel Korea is at right now in regards to racism, our experiences and some of the things people should know when talking about racism in Korea. Also we talk about how it’s good to also look at racism in our own countries and what needs to be improved as well.
Yes we have conversations about tea. Yeah Aussie girls! (With British heritage). Cuppa just means “a cup of tea”. I drink so many cups of tea.
Also, speaking about the word “tea”, when Mr Gwon first stayed with my parents, he got confused because my mum also calls dinner “tea”. And then to be more confusing, my nanna called lunch “dinner” and dinner is “tea”. And then we also drink lots of tea!
Cheese music! I kinda want that on a t-shirt…
Michael Bolton was recently in Korea and there was a TV show and Korean singers did his songs……. I don’t know, I didn’t really watch it haha. But it made Mr Gwon go and watch a lot of Michael Bolton stuff. As much as I laugh at him liking a lot of cheesy music, especially 80’s music, I think it’s great that he just unashamedly likes whatever he wants to like. I notice that in Korean society as well. Compared to Australian culture, where there is a lot of shaming about tastes in music, Koreans seem to be a lot freer to watch and like whatever they want, no matter what their gender.
Today’s comic is not from me, it’s from Chloe! I’m not well today so I didn’t go to Seoul, (but Mr Gwon did), so I didn’t make a comic. But Chloe made one about a KakaoTalk conversation we had. She was craving milo (a chocolate powder for milk from Australia) and I happened to have some milo so we joked about me giving her some in a back alley way like it’s drugs because there isn’t much of it in Korea.
For those that aren’t sure who Chloe is yet, she is Daniel’s girlfriend and lives in Korea. We often talk about the things we miss from Australia.
You can check out her art Instagram and Tumblr. Like Sophie, she is going to do the occasional comic for the blog. It’s kinda weird right? We all draw, we are all from the same region in Australia and we are all with Korean men. We are hoping we can do a big joint project in the future.
If you live in Korea, what do you get cravings for that is hard to get?
