What do you shout for this? “HEY stick figure!!!?”

Ask the ‘tician, ‘seyo and Huge
Why don’t subtitles match what the people are saying all the time?

On the Pulse/At the Movies

This segment is a grand follow up to the 2015 Star Wars Holiday Special, and we’re with Dr. Hurt for a follow up to the speculation discussion about The Force Awakens. We have not figured out what to call it yet, but suffice it to say, we will have Dr. Hurt with us once per month, and the plan is to discuss western films in a Korean context and/or other film related topics. Now, a lot of people might complain that we are now going to be a little bit too old, too North American, and too male… and you’re right, but I think all of us as people who respect the opinions of others. So we subscribe to the philosophy of live and let die.  At any rate, it’s going to be fun to talk about movies with 3 nerdy but cool dudes, and this could end up being the next step in Café Seoul’s evolution.

It is the first episode of 2016, the year of the Monkey. So many things have happened since the last episode. We discussed what we did over the break, including a few viewings of Star Wars Episode VII, the force Awakens. Netflix is now available in Korea. Korea and Japan “solved” the sexual slavery issue.. and more. We also took a picture!

Family Guy comes to Korea?

On the Pulse w/ Rob
Charles Yu and Jason Kim play Fact or Fiction, discussing the difficulties of starting a business in Korea. Starting and running a business in Korea can be a bit difficult. We all know that success can be fleeting, because even though diamonds are forever, business ideas might not always work out unless you strike while the iron is hot. These two guys share their advice on what’s the best thing to do when starting a business.
