Hey there, coffee drinkers! Café Seoul is back after a long hiatus. Please forgive us. Life happens. Eugene became a dad! Yay! But he is so sleepy. Becoming a dad will do that. Dr. Michael Hurt was also supposed to be here for this episode, but he’s got some things to take care of, so he couldn’t make it. Don’t worry though he’ll be back soon enough.

On the Pulse
We interviewed the band Jesper, one of the greatest bands to ever hit the Korean music scene. Matt was not there with us, but band members Jay and Josiah were there along with manager Maim. We were actually very honored that they approached us about appearing on our podcast instead of us searching for them. They sought us out and found us, acting kind of like the spy who loved me. I really wish that’s how it went all the time.
We also had a song break in the middle of the interview where we heard Jesper’s song “Danger Woman” about a woman who wears high heel stilettos. That’s the best kind of danger woman ever. More stilettos! For more information about Jesper, visit their facebook page or their soundcloud page.
Oh yeah, one of the songs I used as a transition in this episode is called “This is a Pen” by the Japanese band Ensoku. Check it out!
