  3. 한국어번역 감사합니다🌝 자막 다시는것도 힘드실텐데~~복받으실꺼에요~❤🤗

  4. It’s so touching to see him growing <3 also u having studied Korean culture for him! As a Korean i rlly wanna say thank you for putting so much effort into everything for him ❣️

  5. i don’t see a future for myself. i was in 6th grade when i was so lost, and now i’m in 11th grade and still am. before going into high school it was like i was forced to know what i wanted to be and what i wanted for the future but all i saw was a blank picture. i saw nothing. i know this is a bit much, but watching your videos gave me a picture. what i want the most for my future is love. i want to be able to experience constant happiness and seeing all the people i care about with a genuine smile on their face. i want to have kids and want to raise them the same way you guys did. because you two are unbelievably amazing parents, and i really do look up to the both of you. the love that you give to your friends and family always puts a smile on my face. luca n junnie are so lucky to call you mom and dad 💛

  6. Watching your videos makes my heart warm because this is as close as i can get into seeing a happy family gathering and it's really nice to see how much you love each other 🥺❣
