Café Seoul Season 4, Episode 4: Pop Over Seoul

Welcome to another addition of Rydia’s Café Seoul featuring Rydia Kim!  Just kidding, anyway Rydia is back this week, and has confirmed that she will be joining us every other episode. She’s a busy gal, and we are happy to accommodate her. A few days ago, a video that showcases her voice acting was released. She is the white rabbit.

 

I think it’s pretty cool how there are rainbows and sunshine all over the video but knowing Rydia, I was expecting that maybe the mood would suddenly change and we’d see lightning and thunder. Ball up all her emotions in one video, I say. But at any rate, Rydia is now a regular!

Also people in Seoul who ride public transit, please be careful not to catch the norovirus so that you don’t have to suffer the fate of having some pretty nasty symptoms that nobody wants to hear about.

Ask Rydia, Rob and Eugene – Why is football not popular in Korea? Of course when we say football, we don’t mean soccer.

We spoke to Shaun Webb from Pop Over Asia about his experiences in media both in the US and Korea, and a little about the Black Lives Matter movement and how that relates to the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

Over the course of the conversation, it came out that Shaun is related to civil rights activist Ezekiel Bell.

He also mentioned that interviewing the dance group waveya is one of the highlights of his career. Over the course of that conversation, the following video was brought up:

Yes, we know the soul/Seoul pun is lame, but we had to put it in because I.Seoul.U is now the slogan of the city we love. (Groan)
