What is your story?: Jon & Lauren met in the hallway of a private school in Seoul, South Korea in 2010. Lauren's friends from St. Louis were teaching in Seoul at the same school as Jon and they convinced her to join them. She had just arrived in the city after her 13 hour flight. She appeared to be a bit crazy, yet beautiful. She went out to dinner that night with her two friends and Jon tagged along. Everyone had a blast.

Jon had lived in Seoul for over a year and was heading back to the USA for a few months, and Lauren came to take over his classes. Over the next two days, he trained her poorly on how to teach said classes, and very well on how to give the kids cookies and play games. They got along well and secretly thought each other were cute.

Three months later Jon returned to Seoul. They started laughing at each other like, all the time and haven't stopped since.
