I think in my heart of hearts…am a Korea-boo.
Annyeonghaseyo! Elizabeth yeyo haha…Gotchya! Hello everyone, am Elizabeth a.k.a Aeilsa…a.k.a Liz and your welcome to my blog. Mannaseo bangawoyo (It’s really nice to meet you ). My love for Hangul started with Boys over Flowers (any BOF fans in the house?!! Say whoop whoop). Prior to that, I don’t think I can recall knowing what hangul (Korean language) sounded like. Basically, I watched Korean dramas just for the same reason majority of people watch it for. The finneeee boys! lol
But then I progressed from the rich fine K-drama boys (which few exist in real life) to the next best thing. Food! or Eumsik. AnytimeIi watch K-dramas, at a certain point, am always hungry. Then after one K-drama too many, I began to wonder about the South Korea and what it was like. Up until then, I might add that for the longest time I thought South Korea was the same as North Korea prior to watching K-dramas…which am happy to report isn’t the case 🙂
Any smart person should know that media often sell a single story, even if they don’t want to. South Korea is much more than K-dramas, K-pop, variety shows and Kimchi, its a place of rich culture and traditions, a way of life which I find incredible and a real world with its own flaws as well, just like ANY COUNTRY IN THE WHOLE FRIGGING WORLD! South Korea thankfully is very up to date, contemporary and is not as strict as its northern counterpart, speaking of Seoul and probably Busan, Hongdae and Itaewon and probably Pyeonchang thoughhhhh I might add it still is very conservative in some aspects. I have also watched a lot of Youtube videos on how other races are treated in Korea (I lovvvvveeee Kennie J. D.) and basically, they seem to have a ‘normal’ treatment system to other races especially black people cause that’s what I searched for like 99% OF THE TIME! LOLI haven’t been to Korea so I really can’t say this and this and that and that of Korea but just from what I’ve seen and heard from people who have it really is a good place to go for vacations and a place to go learn a new culture and language if you can afford it.
CAN WE GET BACK TO THE FOOD?! lol. I just want to eat their FFOOOODD! Not the American foods/snacks where I hear everything is sweet haha but real Korean food/street foods I want to know what kimchi, bulgoigi, fish cakes, spicy rice cakes, ramyeon, dark soy noodles dumplings, moon cakes, bimbipap, SQUID and the many other delicacies Korea has to offer…basically a tasty vacation. LOL
So why write a post about South Korea out of the blues? Basically, its a for a competition, for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in 2018 and the deadline is tomorrow, 22nd of November 2017. My sister knows am trying to study hangul and she just showed me the contest flyer and after talking myself out of it…like is it possible to win? am here writing this rather long essay LOL. But am still trying though. If I win, going to be to S.K will be a dream….a dream! KKum! So there…my korea-boo-ism isn’t that bad is it?
Who else would love to go to S.K? Or if you have been to S.K, what was your experience like? Please tell me. I love reading up on this kind of stuff.
Until my next post…stay safe!
