When was your funniest moment in your life? [Season 1: Funniest Moments - Ep3: Hyun Soh]


"Have you ever played soccer in youth? When I was 10 years old, our class had played soccer. I was very skillful in blocking ball so I did the goal keeper. Because it was the final match, our team and others did the best. One player in other team was very good at shooting the ball. When I got hit by the ball by her, my glasses were broke. It was really painful. Even though I got hurt, I told the coach that I will play. So in the break time, I taped the glasses and played again. Again, she shoot the ball but the ball bent! I thought the ball went up but it went to bottom. So I had to split my leg. I screamed loudly and that was so hilarious that all the players and even couch laughed. By splitting my leg, I caught the ball. Then, I blocked all the ball and we won by 2:0 (I remember). After this game, I never played soccer because I am afraid of splitting legs again. I am really inflexible. Do you know the pain of it? For me, it would be more painful than giving birth to baby. Seriously. When is your funniest moment in your life? I hope you enjoyed my story!^^"

When was your funniest moment in your life? [Season 1: Funniest Moments - Ep2: Hojung]


"One day, someone ordered fried chicken to my hagwon. My teacher asked the delivery man who ordered the chicken, and he said "brain" ordered it. We had no idea what he meant, until we later found out Brian ordered it.

When was your funniest moment in your life? [Season 1: Funniest Moments - Ep1: Eun Sae]


“It all started in a hot summer of 2017, when I first traveled to Okinawa for summer vacation. To make my vacation meaningful, I sought to do something active and adventurous, and I decided to try “skin-scuba diving” for the first time in my life. After having this amazing experience, I was totally captivated with the beauty that only skin-scuba diving possesses, which even led me to certificate
skin-scuba license this year.
If we imagine ourselves in space, probably, the most magnificent thing that we could do will be roaming freely regardless of the inertia, which I think it is very similar with skin-scuba diving. I can roam the whole ocean wherever and however I want, simultaneously enjoying the beautiful scenery. Sea is like an existing galaxy in Earth!
What is more, underwater creatures couldn’t be more beautiful. As I cannot see those amazing animals in daily lives, solely watching them made me feel secure and peaceful.
I hope everyone try skin-scuba diving once in their lives and share the
gratefulness of skin-scuba diving with me.”
