Last month I ventured back to the city of Seoul for my regular holiday. Whilst I was there, I had the opportunity to sit down and have an interview with a current YouTube favourite of mine, JK from JKTV. Only being active for a year, his channel is one of the fastest growing in terms of Kpop Reaction vids and Korean Culture (he has recently surpassed 100k subscribers!). He was excited to sit down for his first interview as a YouTuber and we had a lot of fun talking!

This one has been a long time coming! Last year when I went to Korea I had the pleasure of sitting down with Youtube duo BapMokja and Haeppy.

Since their channel has garnered a lot of interest following the format change, now’s the time to share what we talked about way back when! (more…)
