    IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME LISTENING TO CAFÉ SEOUL, DO NOT START WITH THIS EPISODE.It is only here as a historical record. Please start with season 2 to get a better idea of what kind of podcast we are. Season 1 is very different.This is the very first episode of Café Seoul We honestly didn't quite know what we were doing. But you have to start somewhere. The show started out with 6 members, and the object was to talk current events and play games and tell stories. This may be a chore to listen to. Sorry in advance.It's also the first and last appearance of Dan Shin on the show. Dan was instrumental in motivating Eugene to really bring this show together.The six members were:Rob OuwehandChristine ShinOlivia LimMichael JonesDan ShinEugene Hwang
