Exactly a year ago we created this blog. And then an amazing thing happened.
You people actually read it. :)
Loving Korean was envisioned to be a place where we could help out and answer questions and it wouldn’t exist if you haven’t shown us the trust to answer yours. Amazingly, we got two questions on our very first day, and on 1st of January 2012. we published our first post, answering who a Korean can be attracted to and what it is like meeting Korean parents.
When we looked back at that first post we realized that the last post of this year deals with an opposite topic: who can be attracted to Koreans. We have unwittingly come full circle.
The most popular posts of the year were, without a doubt, How to know if Korean guy likes you, How to type Hangul and Do Korean men think western women are easy. However, there are some newer posts that are starting to catch up rather quickly. It will be interesting to see what happens in the new year.
A post that has had the most views in a single day was Dating Korean guy – clash of prejudice.
The two posts that fared the worst were Holiday wallpapers and Handmade dolls wearing Hanbok, showing off things I created myself. Message received people, message received, haha.
Another lucky coincidence is that just as we are about to publish this post, we have exactly 1000 comments! What a nice round number.
We would like to take a moment to thank our top commenters, Gongjumonica, Jaden’s Treats, Adda, Stephanie, and writer1986.
Even though not all questions became a post, we have carefully answered every single one of them. You can find many interesting questions and answers in, now retired, Ask Us 2012 Archives. We officially open ‘Ask us‘ of 2013. We have many topic and issues we would like to discuss with you and we have no doubt you have many more questions. We’re ready for a new year, now with our very own URL lovingkorean.com.
It has been one whole year, and you guys have shown us kindness and understanding as well as really helpful advice for each other. I guess loving someone from a different culture or of different race does require openness and flexibility that all of you possess.
We don’t know how to thank you for helping us create a friendly and warm atmosphere.
Happy New Year everyone!
Oegukeen and Kimchi Man
