This is Pt. 2 of our Roadtrip to US. Daniel reacts to his first #OOTD compliment - lol! We talk about King Richard. Then detail how face-to-face time is the new way to clear (life) cache. As well as an emotional response to... "wen famous?!"
Today, Katie and I (Daniel) question whether we have been "underdogs" in life? This spills over to reflections on being born into middle class families. We also share a new area of interest - art history! We start off with Francis Bacon... and then continue on with past dinner conversations!! Come join us ;-)Reference links: Francis Bacon's Study after Velázquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X Francis Bacon Documentary
Daniel faces an emergency while scuba diving in Jeju... slow thinker! Local Koreans tell about incident in serving "alive foods" to an American. We share airplane thoughts from 35,000 ft in the air. And finish at my grandma's place in Jeollabukdo! Come along for a listen...
Today, Katie and I are back on the air... talking about our inner dialogue. Is most of your inner thoughts negative? Hmm - join the club. We talk about texting norms in Korea and some wilderness tips that Daniel has "learned". Don't use them just yet!
Today is Daniel's Birthday! Katie breaks down her miyeok-guk secret, then we head to Goseong,  reminisce about school-time "fainting", and finish off with Korea in the Olympics!
My dad promised a rainbow in the sky - if only, we "believed" (heh!) Today, I share a few thoughts/reflections after having spent a month with my parents in the same house! Family time... is friction time!
Today, Daniel & Katie try to formulate "adages" for their 30s lives. Or is it adagé? Basically short statements expressing a general truth. These are the "statements" that we've realized to be true... (90% of the time). Just listen, but don't take notes heh ;-)
Neighbors! We're back... and married! We debrief about the special day, and share a few thoughts from our honeymoon in Jeju Island!! 
Neighbors, today we talk about the debacle in getting my dad to "attach" a word file to an email. Then, we discuss the importance of "tinkering time". Along with Katie's fun time on Rainbow Road... Plus if you have a Korean surname, do you know which clan it belongs to (bon-gwan?)
Neighbors, we're back! Today, Katie and I (Daniel) talk about the metaverse. We got some real questions about carrying our lives into the metaverse... do we hold hands in there, what's considered cheating? Not only that, but Daniel breaks down his first experience in buying his first NFT. Plus, we talk about "Hell" - the Netflix K-drama and the real hell heh!
The air is getting toxic in Seoul again... Can we talk China? Why do our govts nudge us to be quiet or simply not acknowledge issues by China. We got questions... and we want to express them! Join us... as we tip-toe (more like belly-flop) into controversial issues around China. Leave your "wokeness" at the door please.
Today, Katie and I reflect on the changing definition of a "friend" as we enter different chapters in our life. Up till now, it seems our friends are our friends simply because we used to be friends. But is that enough? 
We survived our Korean Pre-Wedding Photoshoot in Seoul! It was 6 hours of controlled chaos. Here's our reaction to it, the day after - lol!
In the midst of our wedding prep, we ponder about the changing expectations around financial support (particularly Korean parents). Till when is enough? Katie also finds emails from her mom - from over a decade ago! We share the Outlook Emails... 
Today, come take a walk with us! We'll share a few thoughts on the importance of silence. As well as Katie's thoughts on why she threw away a childhood narrative about marriage. And we open up a can of Korean Kryptonite... the phrase "Chinese Kimchi"
Today, we turn on the mics and just go! We share our personal reviews - as Koreans - about Minari. As well as our experience in the newly built The Hyundai! Katie teaches a few phrases in Chinese and Daniel shares another phrase for "Be Humble, Sit Down!". Enjoy ya'll
Daniel grew up on tennis. He reflects on his memories training at Sunny Hills Racquet Club in the 90's. From interesting coaches to the "I Quit" moment, he shares a few moments from the close-knit racquet community! Serve that ball out widee..... daniel-son!
Today, I want to pay my respects to Korean Cafe Culture - and how it plays an integral part in Korean society (from teenage years to the golden years). We then ride our train of thought to random subjects - including the infamous Samsung SSAT test.  What the hell is a rung? 
Our wedding in Korea is set for June - and we're figuring it out! In Korea, the new tradition to do is setting up a "Seu-Deu-Meh" (스드메). We describe our experience with this process including: Katie's first reaction to her wedding dress, Daniel's doodling responsibility + debating how much photoshop we want - lol. If you're curious how couples in Korea get married, tune in!
This week, we saw the trailer for Minari - and boy, did it get Daniel in his feelings. He shares his thoughts. Along with the value of hard things. We show how we taught Katie's mom to hug. Along with the forbidden words in Daniel's youth - well, according to his Dad!

I love the book "The 5 Love Languages" I buy it as part of a wedding present for couples getting married.
