    Ah, if only my in-laws would pay attention to this. They’re working on convincing my Korean husband not to ever go back to Korea. I tried to tell them essentially what was said here, but I’m just the silly daughter-in-law. (T^T)

    UPDATE? What does South Korea seem to think about the escalating tensions these days? It seems to be intensifying and it almost feels like a war’s about to start. But maybe I read too many news articles.
