One of my favorite places to hang out in Seoul is a cat bar called 묘한술책. I try to stop by every time I’m in Hongdae. It’s a place you can drink alcohol and hang out with a bunch of cats! The owners, 조아용 and 장재영, are super friendly and nice. They’ll chat with you or they’ll leave you alone to read or play a game. Also, they’ll play any music you like. I’ve spent hours just requesting songs. Just so you know, 재영 really likes Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I met Simon and Martina from Eat Your Kimchi while transferring lines on the Seoul subway. These two are Korean expat celebrities. Their Youtube videos are a good source of entertainment and a Korean educational experience.

I was startled when I recognized them and couldn’t find the right words. I think I shrieked and made big hand movements. They were really, really nice. They took a dozen selfies (or selcas) with me, asked about who I was, and then we parted ways. So, for those friends back home who have asked, yes, Simon and Martina do really live here.

While Gangnam Style isn’t as big as it was a year ago, it’s still well-known in Korea. I finally did the horse dance outside of the Gangnam Subway Station. Have you?

I like to do this teaching activity when it has recently been snowing. There are many ways to go about this activity, but this is usually how I do it:


Cards Against Humanity, Korean expansion

By now most people have heard of or played Cards Against Humanity. Described by the creators as “a free party game for horrible people,” most of my friends refer to it as Apples to Apples for adults (or assholes). Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card.

You can download the set here on their website for free. There are also blank white cards and blank black cards so you can make your own.

Ssamziegil (쌈지길) is the place to shop in Insadong. There are multiple floors connected by a spiral-like stairway. There are plenty of little shops and cafes to buy Korean trinkets.

Location: Anguk Station, Seoul Subway line 3, Exit #6 (towards Jongno Police Station). Enter the Insadong one-way street of Crown Bakery & GS25, and go straight 100 meters. Ssamziegil will be on your left.

On a summer night, go out 여의나루역 (Yeouinaru Station) exit 3 to chill on blankets along the Han River. So much fun.


Who is Sam Harrington?

Ever since last summer, Koreans (students and adults) have been asking me if I know Sam Harrington. I search him on the internet and find nothing.

This is what I gather about the elusive Sam Harrington:

1. He’s Australian.

2. He’s on Korea television.

3. He’s a little bit handsome and speaks alright Korean.

Still… Who is Sam Harrington? And, why can’t I find him on the internet?
