Annyeonghaseyo! We’re three best selling American novelists who explore the wonderfully wacky world of K-Romance through a writer’s lens. We fangirl over our favorite characters, debate our favorite tropes, and nerd out through K-drama deep dives. Expect a few K-pop and K-skincare recs for good measure, because why not ride the Hallyu wave all the way to shore? So grab some Tteokbokki and listen to your new favorite unnis.
 
This podcast is for you if are asking yourself 'Are Kids For Me'? And if you have already answered no to that question. I will be talking to a wide range of people in Ireland about their experience of answering this question, including people who have said yes, no and who still don't know. I hope you find it useful in answering your own question and would love to help build a community of childfree people in Ireland.
