    I just had to find a place to say how much I love your site…this cute video seemed like a nice spot. Co-workers brought me to K-dramas, which brought me to K-pop, which brought me to eatyourkimchi, which brought me to google searching my life away looking for insight on Korean culture…soooo yeah…here I am. Thank you for all the awesome information!
