KMK: Healing Hands

If you’re anything like me then sometimes all of the frustrations, weariness, and obstacles that come from living abroad eventually build up into numbness that has to be relieved. Or, maybe you’ve had a soreness or strain from the gym? Perhaps, it’s an ache from an old injury? Well, Thailand may be far away but…

KMK: Seoul A New Queer Mecca?

Seoul is a city teeming with millions of people. So many millions that I believed the gay population would be bursting at the seams. Years ago, as a freshly minted expat, I pictured a gay Asian mecca analogous to San Francisco. How naïve. Still, undaunted, I waded through the deceiving sea of straight guys in…


KMK: Amandier

Macaroons! It’s not that I’m a big fan of macaroons, its just that I love the way the word rolls off the tongue like some pastry battle cry.

Drinks on the go!

KMK: Vinyl

Vinyl is litterally gem of a bar so tiny that you’ll probably walk right on by if you don’t keep an eye out. It’s one of the best spots to kick off any night in Hongdae when it comes to getting well and throughly pissed. It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s quirky. They’ve got a gimmick…
