Dear Korea #089 - Too Giving

The situation depicted in this comic tends to happen far more often than I’d like to admit. I’ve literally received bruises while trying to fight for the bill at the end of a meal. This is apparently a sign of being a good friend.

While many people back where I come from prefer to go Dutch when it comes to eating out, this method isn’t practiced so much in Korea. It’s not uncommon to see one person (usually the oldest in the group) pay for everyone without asking for anything in return. Of course, this isn’t always the case, and it’s definitely not something that should be expected of anyone. When it does happen, be sure to show appreciation, as being on the receiving end of free food (or anything else) is always awesome.


Dear Korea #056 - A Valuable Lesson

Dear Korea #056

One awkward situation I often find myself in while working on this comic is when coming up with the dialogue and wording in general takes significantly longer than drawing the actual thing. I guess I still have a bit of a ways to go before I become a decent writer. Any tips from the more experienced folks out there? See that little yellow box with random text on the bottom right side of the strip? That’s the part I usually find myself pulling my hair out over.


Dear Korea #040 - Crazy Ninja Mosquitos

Dear Korea #040

Sadly, this one is based on very true events. I woke up with 12 mosquito bites, and I still can’t find the creep that did it. I know this is an issue that people all over the world face, but there’s just something about Korean mosquitoes. This is coming from someone who grew up in Houston, Texas…which is pretty much a city sitting in a swamp.

I’ve seen people here have some seriously bad reactions to mosquito bites. Lucky for me, I just get red swelling (and lack of sleep).

Has anyone else had any bad experiences with mosquitoes out here?


Dear Korea #33 - Unnecessarily Stubborn

Dear Korea #033

I hope everyone is enjoying or did enjoy their vacation time! I know I did, even if it was a bit short. Some of that rain didn’t help, as it made me a little sick, but whatever. It’s all about making the best with what you’ve got, right?

With that mentality, I had a pretty awesome vacation.

On that note, I just want to say that this comic has some of the best readers in the world ♥
