It’s February 14 once again and we’re celebrating Valentine’s day! Have you bought your loved one a chocolate, flowers or that special gift? If not, you still have time. I bought my husband chocolate yesterday, as is customary in Korea. It’s the women who buys the chocolates for men on February 14th and it will be the men’s turn to buy candies for the women on White day, March 14.
My son and I went to Namdaemun market yesterday and we saw the burned down gate. Sad. I thought that there are more people visiting now than there ever was. I also noticed the presence of police cars around Dongdaemun, the East gate. I’m sure they were not there before.
I bought my husband a Toblerone bar as it’s his favorite chocolate, and gave it to him last night. He complained that it’s not big enough! Aigoo!
