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”.)
A lot of people both in and outside of South Korea seem to be worried about the MERS (메르스: Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus) situation in South Korea. Many people asked us if we could talk about this, so here’s a short video explaining what is happening in general. 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!

Traffic can be pretty bad at times in almost any big city, and Seoul is no exception. On top of that, since people didn’t expect that there would be so many cars in the future when they were building most of the houses and roads many decades ago, there is hardly enough parking space for most cars. Hyunwoo talks about this in today’s Story Time video, and if you want to study with the full translation and receive regular updates, you can subscribe at http://talktomeinkorean.com/storytime : ) Watch this video to see how much you understand, and if you want to study with our detailed video lesson and e-books, you can subscribe for regular updates at http://talktomeinkorean.com/storytime : )
