Q&A with My Boyfriend | Age Difference? Language Barrier? | Dating in Korea

Dating

Okay, I’m going to start. Ready? Hi guys, so we are in a cafe so if you hear any noises around that’s what’s going on. We got some more questions after we did our boyfriend tag that people liked and thought you were funny [feeding him compliments] Oh!

We got a few more questions and we’re going to answer them now. First up, Is there an age gap physically or mentally? So she’s older than me. I’m 1991, he’s 1993. So she’s physically more older than me, I think I’m mentally more older than her.

So it’s balanced. I haven’t matured since I was in 8th grade. Emotionally. Very true actually. This one I kept in and you’re going to be angry at me.

The question was What’s the best K-drama you two have watched together? And I said, Secrets and Lies. You don’t even know the name.

What’s it called? I think it was Secrets and Lies. Yeah. So there’s this horrible horrible drama.

I mean it depends on how you define horrible, but it is horrible. I mean it’s like perfect Korean soap opera which means that it’s really bad. To be fair in Korea there is no term “soap opera” because every Korean drama is like that. Every time we go get dinner at this one place after work they’re always playing it cause that’s when it comes on TV so we’ve accidentally started watching it. But just so we do answer your question, the K-drama that we agree on is – can you guess?

The only K-drama you like. Coffee Prince. Well when I was in elementary school my mom destroyed our TV cause I was fixated on the TV forever so I didn’t really watch TV ever since then when I was in 5th grade.https://m.facebook.com/help/168738436521284?helpref=popular_topics So actually the last K-drama I watched was that one. Coffee Prince.

It’s still a really good one actually. It’s not stereotypical in a lot of sense. It was very different for the time. Also it was the only drama that ever talked about being not straight.

Yeah. And also it was the only drama that shows a young female that is not feminine. But then after that there were so many “gender bender” ones. To be fair the other follow ups are really distorted in a lot of ways I feel like.

They’re not really showing the character as a human. Or they just want to show a strong woman just because women want to see a strong woman on TV not because they have an actual reason to be strong. For Coffee Prince it actually has a really meaningful reasonable reason and emotional lines for why she has to become really strong. I wouldn’t say that’s the best drama I’m sure, cause I haven’t watched any K-dramas since that. That is the only drama that we agree on but I think he’d really like Reply 1997.

It’s really good, I really I think you’d appreciate it. So yeah we don’t really watch K-dramas. I mean I’m busy watching Brooklyn 99 so.

99! Next up, What hobbies do you share? Do we learn new languages together? Uhhh.

We don’t really share hobbies. Board games. I love board games. We just are really bad. We just don’t like losing.

We’re both really competitive. We like reading books to be fair. When we don’t have a computer so that we can waste time on YouTube just like you guys!!! It’s not like a hobby we do together but yeah we both really read a lot.

And then as far as learning new languages. I’ve kind of learned languages up to a point and now Kurt is learning a lot of them and catching up to me. That’s not true! I mean like with French.

I knew 3 years worth of French and then you started learning it so now you caught up and now you’re surpassing me. And same with Japanese, you caught up and now you’re surpassing me. Well I never learned Japanese. Yeah but you’re just naturally good at it. Cause I watch so much Anime.

So as far as learning languages together, no. I just watch him make me look bad. How are you (in Chinese) Should I start Chin- No. I love you (in Chinese). Number 5 was actually asked by a ton of people and it was: when we started dating was there a language barrier, if yes how did we get past it?

I think there was. We 100% speak in English unless it’s like really little things like What do you want to eat? I think for you it was harder just because I was okay because I was in my native language but for you it was harder. I guess it took a while but also Cari got used to being in Korea so she only uses really simple words and simple sentences actually.

I don’t know if you guys ever. – Speak slowly. Yeah I don’t know if you guys have ever really felt it but she speaks slowly. Like compared to other Americans to be fair. A lot of people say that they watch my channel to learn English because I speak in a way that is easy to understand.

Yeah it’s very true actually, she speaks really slowly. Also she doesn’t- yeah. It took a while. I think it took a while for me to explain things perfectly in the way that I want to explain. You’re really particular too.

Like he always asks me like ‘what does this word mean?’ and its like such a high level of vocabulary. I, in Korean, if I learn the color blue, I’m okay to call all shades of blue, blue. I’m satisfied with that. But you’re like, “well what is this ocean misty blue?” Well even, different story but in East Asian languages when you say blue it means blue and green at the same time actually.

Especially to older people. That’s the same for Mayans too for some reason. So anyway. We can promote our video. We made a video about Korean slang.

I’ll put it up here where ever it goes. Well if you ask to any Korean “what’s the difference between hard and different – difficult – they’ll say the exact definition of why it’s different but for Americans they don’t articulate the difference. Well she majored in Communications but I honestly don’t believe in communication in the sense that communication – it can’t be complete. [no single language is able to capture everything completely] Language is not complete. I actually think that us knowing both languages is helpful though because when we can’t get something across completely in English we can use words from other languages [there are words that don’t exist in english or Korean or vice versa] The point is, language is very delicate even if you’re really good at it so. Basically it was fine.

We’re fine right?! Next one, really quick: do you believe in love at first sight? No, no? I think we’re both no.

How do you feel when I take solo trips? Are you worried are you supportive, how do you feel? Here’s one thing, so because you guys only really know me from my channel you know that I travel a lot by myself but what you don’t know is that he also does, so it’s not like I’m the only one that travels by myself.

To be fair, even before we met, I’ve been always doing that. Like when I was in middle school I left my house for 2 weeks and wandered around the whole of Korea. Didn’t you just like have a student train pass? Yeah, no actually I borrowed my mother’s credit card. Oh.

I borrowed it. Right before we started dating, you went to Paris for a month by yourself. I stayed in Paris for a month without any plan actually. Yeah no plan. You had like your first night planned, like the hostel.

4 days of AirBnb. Also really long story but the AirBnb was so… Denis! [Denis, the horrible AirBnb host lol] I wonder what he does now. Actually the road that I was staying was Rue St Denis. And then Denis was also…ugh.

Nevermind. Anyway. I also think that like traveling alone is much better in a lot of sense.

I really think that traveling is about discovering yourself, not like, unless you want to go to Disneyland. But she like just goes to really random places that I would never go. Like even in Korea. It’s basically like you’re living in America and you’re going to, I don’t know, middle of Wyoming. I don’t even know where that is.

But anyway, one time she actually got lost kind of. Not lost, she like couldn’t find a bus. My bus never came.

And she doesn’t know how to call a cab obviously so she needed to call me when I was in Seoul. And then I had to call a cab and needed to explain to the cab where she is. That happened. Thank you.

Well I mean Korea is a really safe place in a lot of sense so I usually don’t care or are worried about it but sometimes I worry about it just because she goes to really weird and random places honestly. I think we both think that solo travel is really important so. But also like if we go together she wouldnt be able to do things cause I get cranky.

We have really different travel styles. Why do you need to take a photo? Even when we went to Osaka we split up for one day.

So it’s just usually better if we travel apart but we’re going to Hong Kong next month. This month actually by the time that I post this. In January. So in short, it’s usually okay, I don’t care but sometimes I get scared cause she goes to really random place and she gets lost at 10pm or something but usually fine. And it’s better to travel alone if you really want to discover yourself!

Your inside! Last question: What has been your favorite trip together? And we said Osaka we think? Osaka was fun, I’ve never been to Osaka before. Well actually if we count when we went to New York.

I really liked our New York trip. I would say New York was better in a lot of sense. Osaka was fun too but Osaka was kind of spoiled in a sense that its just such an obvious place for me.

Didn’t we go on a holiday and there were like a lot of Koreans there? To be fair Osaka is always full of Koreans. Yeah but it was like abnormal. It’s a fun place but it’s just – also we were there for a shorter time.

In New York we were there for like 10 days. It was about 2 and a half – 1 and a half weeks. Yeah either New York or Osaka. Ask us after we get back from Hong Kong. Even San Francisco was okay honestly.

Just not the perfect place that I imagined. New York was really good. Except how dirty the subway was. It’s just disgusting.

Yeah. Did you see the video on Conan? I know we have rats that like their tails are tied together.

They get stuck together. It’s called a rat king [ google ‘rat king’ at your own risk] It is like a natural phenomenon or? Yeah their tails just all get tangled together and then its just this rat giant [reconsiders plan to go to america] It seems very interesting. You’ll find one. Anyway on that note we’re done!

That was it! So thank you for watching, thank you very much for answering questions. He doesn’t really like this so if we do another video together it will be something that he wants.

Why why why? I’m just imagining it would be so fun if I do a video explaining what grid fins are. Oh my god.

So it is Sunday and I swear since Friday he has been watching YouTube videos about math problems, prime numbers. do you guys know how Pi gets defined by…Nevermind. He won’t be making that kind of content on this channel. I would love to [make your own channel!] But you really want to share Korean music, Korean film and stuff like that.

Oh yeah. So we probably won’t do anymore Q&As cause he hates Q&As lol. Anyway thank you for watching as usual and we will talk to you guys later.

Have a happy new year. Bye!

Well when I was in elementary school my mom destroyed our TV cause I was fixated on the TV forever so I didn’t really watch TV ever since then when I was in 5th grade. So actually the last K-drama I watched was that one. Coffee Prince.

It’s still a really good one actually. It’s not stereotypical in a lot of sense. It was very different for the time.

Also it was the only drama that ever talked about being not straight. Yeah. And also it was the only drama that shows a young female that is not feminine. But then after that there were so many “gender bender” ones. To be fair the other follow ups are really distorted in a lot of ways I feel like.

They’re not really showing the character as a human. Or they just want to show a strong woman just because women want to see a strong woman on TV not because they have an actual reason to be strong. For Coffee Prince it actually has a really meaningful reasonable reason and emotional lines for why she has to become really strong. I wouldn’t say that’s the best drama I’m sure, cause I haven’t watched any K-dramas since that. That is the only drama that we agree on but I think he’d really like Reply 1997.

It’s really good, I really I think you’d appreciate it. So yeah we don’t really watch K-dramas. I mean I’m busy watching Brooklyn 99 so.

99! Next up, What hobbies do you share? Do we learn new languages together? Uhhh.

We don’t really share hobbies. Board games. I love board games.

We just are really bad. We just don’t like losing. We’re both really competitive. We like reading books to be fair. When we don’t have a computer so that we can waste time on YouTube just like you guys!!!

It’s not like a hobby we do together but yeah we both really read a lot. And then as far as learning new languages. I’ve kind of learned languages up to a point and now Kurt is learning a lot of them and catching up to me. That’s not true! I mean like with French.

I knew 3 years worth of French and then you started learning it so now you caught up and now you’re surpassing me. And same with Japanese, you caught up and now you’re surpassing me. Well I never learned Japanese. Yeah but you’re just naturally good at it. Cause I watch so much Anime.

So as far as learning languages together, no. I just watch him make me look bad. How are you (in Chinese) Should I start Chin- No.

I love you (in Chinese). Number 5 was actually asked by a ton of people and it was: when we started dating was there a language barrier, if yes how did we get past it? I think there was. We 100% speak in English unless it’s like really little things like What do you want to eat?

I think for you it was harder just because I was okay because I was in my native language but for you it was harder. I guess it took a while but also Cari got used to being in Korea so she only uses really simple words and simple sentences actually. I don’t know if you guys ever. – Speak slowly. Yeah I don’t know if you guys have ever really felt it but she speaks slowly. Like compared to other Americans to be fair.

A lot of people say that they watch my channel to learn English because I speak in a way that is easy to understand. Yeah it’s very true actually, she speaks really slowly. Also she doesn’t- yeah.

It took a while. I think it took a while for me to explain things perfectly in the way that I want to explain. You’re really particular too. Like he always asks me like ‘what does this word mean?’ and its like such a high level of vocabulary. I, in Korean, if I learn the color blue, I’m okay to call all shades of blue, blue.

I’m satisfied with that. But you’re like, “well what is this ocean misty blue?” Well even, different story but in East Asian languages when you say blue it means blue and green at the same time actually. Especially to older people.

That’s the same for Mayans too for some reason. So anyway. We can promote our video. We made a video about Korean slang. I’ll put it up here where ever it goes.

Well if you ask to any Korean “what’s the difference between hard and different – difficult – they’ll say the exact definition of why it’s different but for Americans they don’t articulate the difference. Well she majored in Communications but I honestly don’t believe in communication in the sense that communication – it can’t be complete. [no single language is able to capture everything completely] Language is not complete. I actually think that us knowing both languages is helpful though because when we can’t get something across completely in English we can use words from other languages [there are words that don’t exist in english or Korean or vice versa] The point is, language is very delicate even if you’re really good at it so. Basically it was fine. We’re fine right?!

Next one, really quick: do you believe in love at first sight? No, no? I think we’re both no. How do you feel when I take solo trips? Are you worried are you supportive, how do you feel?

Here’s one thing, so because you guys only really know me from my channel you know that I travel a lot by myself but what you don’t know is that he also does, so it’s not like I’m the only one that travels by myself. To be fair, even before we met, I’ve been always doing that. Like when I was in middle school I left my house for 2 weeks and wandered around the whole of Korea. Didn’t you just like have a student train pass? Yeah, no actually I borrowed my mother’s credit card.

Oh. I borrowed it. Right before we started dating, you went to Paris for a month by yourself. I stayed in Paris for a month without any plan actually.

Yeah no plan. You had like your first night planned, like the hostel. 4 days of AirBnb.

Also really long story but the AirBnb was so… Denis! [Denis, the horrible AirBnb host lol] I wonder what he does now. Actually the road that I was staying was Rue St Denis. And then Denis was also…ugh. Nevermind.

Anyway. I also think that like traveling alone is much better in a lot of sense. I really think that traveling is about discovering yourself, not like, unless you want to go to Disneyland. But she like just goes to really random places that I would never go.

Like even in Korea. It’s basically like you’re living in America and you’re going to, I don’t know, middle of Wyoming. I don’t even know where that is.

But anyway, one time she actually got lost kind of. Not lost, she like couldn’t find a bus. My bus never came.

And she doesn’t know how to call a cab obviously so she needed to call me when I was in Seoul. And then I had to call a cab and needed to explain to the cab where she is. That happened. Thank you. Well I mean Korea is a really safe place in a lot of sense so I usually don’t care or are worried about it but sometimes I worry about it just because she goes to really weird and random places honestly.

I think we both think that solo travel is really important so. But also like if we go together she wouldnt be able to do things cause I get cranky. We have really different travel styles. Why do you need to take a photo?

Even when we went to Osaka we split up for one day. So it’s just usually better if we travel apart but we’re going to Hong Kong next month. This month actually by the time that I post this.

In January. So in short, it’s usually okay, I don’t care but sometimes I get scared cause she goes to really random place and she gets lost at 10pm or something but usually fine. And it’s better to travel alone if you really want to discover yourself! Your inside! Last question: What has been your favorite trip together?

And we said Osaka we think? Osaka was fun, I’ve never been to Osaka before. Well actually if we count when we went to New York. I really liked our New York trip.

I would say New York was better in a lot of sense. Osaka was fun too but Osaka was kind of spoiled in a sense that its just such an obvious place for me. Didn’t we go on a holiday and there were like a lot of Koreans there? To be fair Osaka is always full of Koreans.

Yeah but it was like abnormal. It’s a fun place but it’s just – also we were there for a shorter time. In New York we were there for like 10 days. It was about 2 and a half – 1 and a half weeks.

Yeah either New York or Osaka. Ask us after we get back from Hong Kong. Even San Francisco was okay honestly.

Just not the perfect place that I imagined. New York was really good. Except how dirty the subway was. It’s just disgusting.

Yeah. Did you see the video on Conan? I know we have rats that like their tails are tied together. They get stuck together. It’s called a rat king [ google ‘rat king’ at your own risk] It is like a natural phenomenon or?

Yeah their tails just all get tangled together and then its just this rat giant [reconsiders plan to go to america] It seems very interesting. You’ll find one. Anyway on that note we’re done!

That was it! So thank you for watching, thank you very much for answering questions. He doesn’t really like this so if we do another video together it will be something that he wants.

Why why why? I’m just imagining it would be so fun if I do a video explaining what grid fins are. Oh my god. So it is Sunday and I swear since Friday he has been watching YouTube videos about math problems, prime numbers. do you guys know how Pi gets defined by…Nevermind.

He won’t be making that kind of content on this channel. I would love to [make your own channel!] But you really want to share Korean music, Korean film and stuff like that. Oh yeah.

So we probably won’t do anymore Q&As cause he hates Q&As lol. Anyway thank you for watching as usual and we will talk to you guys later. Have a happy new year.

Bye!
