In this week’s episode of your favorite Korean Adoptee podcast, the Janchi Boys chat about whether or not we can be too focused on a thing, and how we’re learning to react slowly for the benefit of our relationships.


Later, we try a New Year cookie. Is that a jujubee?!

The Janchi Show Quick Bio

We’re three Korean Adoptees spread out around America and each of us are at different stages in life. We’ll talk about the Korean adoptee experience from our perspectives and learn more about our shared culture, usually with food. And it won’t just be the three of us; each week we’ll have other adoptees from all over the world joining us to talk about what makes us similar and what makes us unique. So join the party!


// Meet the Janchi Boys!
