  1. I know the portions look small, but were you guys able to eat them all? Just curious πŸ™‚ Not a big fan of Korean food, but this looks delicious! You guys look so cute together btw.

  2. Wow, I’ve heard of a four-course meal, but I lost count of how many courses this dinner had! How nice that you got to try so many different dishes. They certainly have the right idea with pre-dessert! πŸ™‚ And a great picture of you two. You look like you had such a great time.
