    there’s this 2010 hit thai movie in youtube “hello stranger” filmed in korea featured kdrama locations, food (jajangmyeon, fresh wriggling squid tentacles and other delicacy) and custom. its interesting to find koreans are stiff in tradition in this modern age.

      I saw that about two months ago, I think. It was shown on KBS. Only non-Christian Koreans still follow their tradition religiously. Most Christians in Korea don’t celebrate their holidays traditionally.

    5 days wla work c hubby starting Feb. 2. For 4 days, pbalik-balik kmi sa bahay ng parents niya. Nanibago ako. Sbi ko, “Ba’t ba kelangan parating bumisita? Bumisita na kmi nung isang araw at kahapon, pati ba naman ngayon?” Naiyak tuloy ako sa inis. Sbi ko sa sarili, “‘Buti pa nung nsa Pilipinas ako, pwde kong gawin kahit anong gusto ko anytime. Dito, para akong puppet. Sunod-sunoran.”

    Pero nung dumating kmi sa bahay ng biyenan ko, ambabait nila, halos wla nga akong naitulong kc yung asawa ng youngr bro at kapatid na babae ng hubby ko ang halos gumagawa. Mabuti pkikitungo nila sa’kin. Npahiya ako sa sarili ko. Di pla ako dpat umasta ng ganun kc blessed ako…Ganun lng tla ang culture nila.
