  1. They love you. You worked hard to implant the idea they need to get away from promoting court food. I love the obligatory cut to fat ass Americans stuffing burgers down their throats and then cut to the skinny Korean family.

  2. Gotta love how even in the “foreigner” section, there is room for a K-ajumma style line: “He lost weight” and the riff on the nutritional value of K-food. Especially the clapping of hands, at the vegetable consumption part, haha! Even though EJ looks quite young, that was a spot-on impression of my Mom! (I’m a Kor-American) Great documentary and I love the site. Keep up the awesome work.

  3. First time visiting this blog and I have to say keep up the great work. I can really see that you’ve got such passion and discipline to keep this blog going.

    Also, I’m always a sucker for seeing a white guy speak better Korean than me.

  4. If it wasn’t for working in Pyongtaek, I’d turn into a Kangwan-do ajjussi. Living in a log cabin up in the mountains running some motorcycle camp/resort where drunken jackassery would ensue and much korean food would be eaten. I think my wife would protest and want to leave here sometime back to the states.
