We briefly broke up but later got back together and decided to work out our differences little by little. Steve is Korean American and Joy grew up in Hong Kong, so we had completely different childhoods and interests. We have since spent a lot of time learning the differences in each other’s culture and finding the similarities in them by traveling to our home countries together. A lot of our time is spent discovering new foods everywhere and snuggling on the couch watching Netflix. We try to take trips overseas together every year to see as much as we can before we start our own little Korean-American-Chinese family.
