A few of us from megablog Nanoomi were on a KBS morning show this week. You’ll see Mike “Feetman Seoul” Hurt, Stafford “Chosun Bimbo” Lumsden (and from SeoulPodcast) and Simon and Martina from “Eat Your Kimchi” along with me. It’s the usual silly Korean TV stuff of “Ooh, look at these foreigners interested in our culture,” but it’s all in good fun. I particularly found it funny that even though Stafford said he was from New Zealand in Korean, they posted that he was from Europe on the screen.
