This was my 4th time joining for one of Brian's folktales! I was lucky enough to have it be a 1:1 "VIP" experience. Brian does an amazing job acting out the characters while he is reading, connecting the story and moral to our current lives, and keeps in touch. I guarantee if you try this experience once, you'll look forward to Brian's experience every month!

orean folk tales are perhaps an unconventional way to get into Korean culture but they offer rare insights not normally available to visitors focussed on the sights and sounds of South Korea. My session consisted of the reading of a highly entertaining folktale that would have appealed to people of all ages and all nationalities. Along the way, I learnt a few Korean words and expressions which, being a great fan of Korean drama, I was most grateful for. I also got tips about pronunciation, about food, family names, and numerous other aspects of Korean culture that will be useful for the day when (fingers crossed) I finally visit South Korea.

Once again, I had a wonderful time with Brian in his Once Upon a Time Class. I teach English to Korean students and brought a few to his classes to hear the stories in English. Brian adjusted his lesson to meet the needs of my students and did a wonderful job making it fun and relatable to everybody. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful experience it was! Brian is such a great storyteller, he sounded at times captivating and at times funny, and the story itself was unique and exciting. The experience is very well thought-out and comprehensive, I learned some fascinating things about Korean culture and traditions. Brian also told about one amazing place in Seoul which is off the usual tourist track so it is very valuable information. During the experience Brian encouraged questions and answered them in a very detailed way, he is such an attentive host. Brian also used some props, which made this storytelling experience very real. This one-of-a-kind experience is both entertaining and educating, highly recommended!

Brian is an amazing storyteller and person. This was our third time booking and will continue booking this magical experience. His experience is interactive and he really thinks of everything. On a side note, he remembered conversation from our last experience and it made us feel really valued and special. Brian is super kind and this experience makes us feel so relaxed and happy.
