winter is jealous of the spring flowers
꽃샘추의 or “kkot saem chu ui” is a korean expression meaning “sudden frost in the blooming season” (according to Daum’s dictionary). We’ve had a really good warm almost-spring weather the past several days with temperatures in the afternoon almost reaching two digits. However, yesterday was really cold with flurries in the afternoon. This morning’s temperature is negative seven (-7). Koreans say that winter is jealous of the spring flowers, so the expression “kkot saem chu ui”. I have packed our winter jackets as early as last week, but I guess I’ll have to wear them today when I go to the grocery.
Have a great day!
