I am not going to talk about the party I was at last night, except that it was nice to see Sanghoon and Rira again, and good to meet several new people including Dr. Kim Kyu-hyun, and a few others. I wish I’d known they were likely to leave early-ish, so I could have talked to them more… especially since I have a funny vague feeling I was intended to talk to someone I didn’t (much).
One of the “few others” I met was a guy I recognized, but couldn’t place where I recognized him from until someone mentioned Youtube. He’s that guy who posts videos from his daily life in Korea.
Anyway, now he’s posted a video that (briefly) has me in it, too. Do I really sound like that? And look like that? Eh?

Came home to a missed chat message from overseas, from someone I really wanted to talk to… Sigh.
UPDATE: A couple more videos from the subway station and so on:

You have a cute accent (I noticed this in the podcast). More importantly–you look WAY HOT here. Like…hot.
Let me make it crystal clear. You, Gord = ULTRA SEXY.
Brett = BEASTLY (and not in the I’m-a-sexy-beast kind of way).
Thanks! (I say as I blush slightly.)
(Though I should clarify that it’s not Canadians who have an accent, it’s everyone else. Presumably including you. ;) Ha!)
I’m glad Brett probably doesn’t read this blog, tho.
Yes, you do sound like that. :)
Oh, and dude, how often do you go to Hongdae? I went with my wife a week or so ago (we wanted to go to that Greek restaurant, but it was Sunday and they were closed), and I realized that the last two times I was in Hongdae it was with you. You are now inextricably connected with Hongdae in my mind.
Ok, I can’t really hear an accent on you, in fact, in comparison to those two other guys who I originally thought might be Canadian you sound American. I think actually they may have been Brits now, I should check. Probably a regional thing . . .
Really? By the way, I mean how my voice is much higher than it sounds from the inside.
Ha, almost the last two times I was in Hongdae, it was with you. (I did meet someone for coffee once, and took a class to an indie rock club, but other than that, I haven’t been in years except with you. Though I may start going to club shows, the last one I saw was quite fun.)
In fact, I go so rarely that I got out at Hapjeong to go to the party, and I didn’t know the way to the station at all; the reason I was with those people was that I was following them to the station.
I suppose I could inextricably link Hongdae with you in my mind, but that would be mean. :)
Ha, of course not. Canadians don’t have accents. It’s everyone else! The other two guys with me were a Kiwi (New Zealander) and a Vancouverite (Canadia).
