This is an edited highlights video from the Live Korean Q&A session broadcast earlier today. The original broadcast was over an hour long, so we trimmed it down to just 8 minutes. We plan to do these live Q&A sessions as often as we can, and we will announce the schedule for the week on our website. We answer questions from the comments posted on YouTube during the live chat, comments on our website, on Twitter as well as through the language exchange app Hello Talk. (Download the app at http://hellotalk.com and add Hyunwoo with his ID “ever4one”.)

We tried not to include too much of our personal views and tried to just give you what we’ve observed and learned about. What are your thoughts about the current situation? Please let us know in the comment!
