How we met (9)

Read from the beginning! Go to How we met (1)!

After I got home, I waited for his text message.... (even though I told him I would call him.)

For some reason, I wanted to see him wanting me more. (hehehe)

But, well, I decided to text him first. Maybe, I wanted him more. (and I told him I would call him before.  What an excuse.... lol)

He texted me back saying he was thinking about me. hahaha.

Hee Hee.

I guess this is how we met.

Later, I found out the woman that he kept talking about was his girlfriend.

WHAT?!!!!??? OMG!!!

He broke up with her that night. (What a player!!!! )

Well, that was actually quite sweet of him that he wanted to be with me and he had to straighten things up.


To all the readers who enjoyed reading our story,

Thank you for your support, and I will come back with many fun episodes of ours.

It is spring! The season of love. (no reference, that is what I think. lol) LET'S LOVE EACH OTHER! :)


And this is the video that we made talking about how we met. That is a shorter version. :)

And this is the video me asking Jame what was the first thing attracted James about me. :)


How my Korean parents accepted my black boyfriend

My parents were never conservative people. They were quite open-minded.
Especially, my mom had been to many different countries, so she had met many different people from different cultures.

However, it must have been really hard for my parents to accept James as my boyfriend.

There were many different reasons, but one of them was the language.

My mom always dreamed that she and her son-in-law can be good friends and she can treat him as her son since she doesn't have a son. Being able to communicate with each other was quite important for my mom when it comes to a son-in-law.

My mom knew that I don't date someone I would not think about marrying, so she must have not liked the fact that James couldn't speak good Korean and she couldn't speak good English.

Things were not easy.

I uploaded a video on youtube one day for a video response to a video asking if all asians parents are quite against international relationships. The girl who uploaded the video deleted it after some time, but she was in an interracial relationship and was not accepted as her boyfriend's girlfriend by his parents.
This video started to get views and got popular. I started to get some subscribers.

Things got worse, and I even thought about giving up. However, people started supporting us and rooting for us. 

Well... At the end, my parents accepted James, and we got to get married.

This is the video that I made how I persuade my parents.

I even interviewed my mom and made a video with her.

I hope you enjoy the video! :)

The bottom line is we are all equal and precious.

We are all beloved children of somebody.

South Koreans love flower festivals. The most popular festival in South Korea is cherry blossom festival. Our family decded to go to Suwon Cherry Blossom Festival which is held from Apr 19 to Apr 21.

Yuri was really fascinated by flowers.

She loved walking by herself and kept looking at people walking by her.

The temperature dropped a bit this weekend, so it was not that warm..
