At first, Korea felt really hard. Everything was much bigger and faster than where they had come from.
Fortunately, they worked with many other foreigners who helped them. They made friends and didn't feel so lonely.
They worked with children that didn't speak the same language. They were supposed to teach them English, but found that much of their jobs required more entertainment than education, hence the term "edutainment".
Once upon a time, there lived a boy and girl in Arkansas. They had a dog and a house on Blueberry Lane. The boy had a job and worked very hard and prospered. The girl was very smart and went to school. They both enjoyed rock climbing.
They loved their life and everyone they shared it with, but something felt missing. So they took a trip around America in search of that missing something.
The trip was really fun, but they didn't find what they were looking for.
Sometimes all you know is that you want life to be different.
Along the way, some bad things happened.
The boy and girl decided to leave their familiar life and comfortable home on Blueberry Lane. They packed up everything they owned, left their dog with family...
and flew far away to a mystical place called South Korea.
