  8. Hi Matt,
    Your video on pet cafes is probably your cutest video yet! Love the cats and dogs and would probably visit these cafesat Hongdae if I have the chance to visit Seoul again.
    Could you do a piece on the food stalls in the markets in Dongdaemun one of these days? Chanced upon them last year and wished I had time to sit and soak in the lively atmosphere.
    Cheers,
    SL

  9. Glad you liked it! Special thanks to my KBS buddy Abby Rhodes for most of the video footage, and to Maria Kim, who navigated conversations with an especially prickly owner of the cat palace. Funny story: we thought he threatened to “shoot” us if we aired the footage… no, just to “sue” us. Better, but still!
    -Matt
