How Korean Couples Do PDA

New Year’s Eve is totally a couples holiday, right? I’ve never met a person who was single at the time of New Year’s Eve who has told me that they have loved the holiday. So while it’s New Year’s Eve and all, this post is the most fitting. Americans have varying levels of PDA. Some people are comfortable with it and some people just won’t even go there. Maybe there’s a few people that take it to the extremes too and for those, we like to take pictures and post them because we think it’s funny. In South Korea, you won’t see a lot of the American style PDA that we know of – the kissing and the making out, etc. Instead, you’ll see couples dressing alike to show their affection. In America, sometimes this happens by coincidence, but in South Korea, it’s on purpose. I’m sure to the outside world, it’s a little strange, but I find it to be quite endearing. I don’t think I would ever feel comfortable doing that here in the states, personally, but it’s pretty cute to see a different version of PDA around the world.

  • did y’all think we were going to run? 😛 can you run in ultraboosts?
  • ☺️ when it’s summer we still wear all black 🖤
  • this is where we live now 🥰
  • The only way we’re getting through quarantine is @juni_sf meals
  • We’re making an even bigger leap back into the archives now! I took these at Tết - the Vietnamese New Year Festival back in Feb 2008 and to this day, it’s still one of my favorite photo sets. The vibrant colors always get me 🥰
  • I’m enjoying these throwback photos more than I thought I would. I didn’t have an Instagram until mid-2012 and that’s mostly because I was still using a BlackBerry. Sometimes as we change computers, carrying over those photos with you is too much of a hassle, but I’m now seeing that there’s a reason why some of these still live on Facebook and Flickr.

My team in 2011 will agree with me on this. Campfire OK was one of the best bands we worked with that year. 💯 would book them over and over again and we sort of did. Coffee House didn’t always draw in an enormous crowd, but once a month these were my favorite nights. I love looking back and remembering how talented the individuals I worked with were, but also they were the kindest humans. ❤️
  • I was so excited for my move to California back in 2013, but it wasn’t exactly great timing for Yow Yow! Just before I left, we were able to partner with @nordstrom ‘s wedding suite, @mollymoonicecream , and @drysoda on some of my favorite collaborations.

Elliot Suhr captured these photos for us beautifully. I honestly should have hired him to do all of our collab photos. And even though this is a semi-candid shot of @vronlimhughes and I on our way out of our meeting with Dry, it’s a reminder of how far we’ve come with Yow Yow! Her opinions are the ones I trust the most and to this day she still edits the pieces I have the hardest time writing and is the last set of eyes before they go live.
  • 😆 I’m about to shake up my grid aesthetic! We have limited options when it comes to shooting at home, but now seems like a better time than ever to revisit some photos that we’ve never shared before. Despite this very moody look, I had a great time at this wedding in Yosemite back in 2016 ❤️
