14 years ago, Erica Teng came to South Korea to pursue her degree in Chemical Engineering through a Korean government scholarship. Just like any other foreigner in a different country, she had to adjust a lot and get used to her new surroundings. Her homesickness was also intense, but soon enough she found a home in Ricky Park.
The Pinay-Korean couple is behind Tengkers World, the YouTube channel that's responsible for most of the heartwarming, wholesome, and entertaining family content in our feed. Here, they have been sharing their daily lives in South Korea—back when it was still the two of them, their marriage last year, and now that they have their own baby named Dana. Their YT channel description reads: "We thought it would be a good idea to keep the special moment in our life recorded so that we can look back when we are old" and we're just here to say that Ricky and Erika are the true #RelationshipGoals. <3
The two met during a common friend's party and the moment Ricky saw Erika, he was already smitten by our girl. We got to chat with them in an exclusive Zoom interview and Ricky highlighted that Erica won his heart from the very start: "I was aiming for you, not anyone else." You guys, it was like a kilig K-drama scene unfolding right before our very eyes! The way they look at each other, finish each other's sentences, and how they describe their relationship then and made us weak in the knees. Mapapa sana all ka na lang talaga!
In this video, Ricky and Erika shares more of their first encounter, their cultural differences (hint: It is not common in South Korea to introduce your boyfriend/girlfriend to your family unless you're planning to get married!), and how they want to grow their family as an international couple.
