Your Two Cents: What Stands Out In Korean Culture???
With each passing day, the world is becoming more and more globalized. I remember when I was maybe in elementary school, sushi was considered "gross". A lot of people in my country (the US) freaked out at the mere thought of swallowing raw fish. However, now it's loved by SO many people in the US including the rich and the famous. In fact, now it's considered "high class" food! I love that though! We're becoming much more open-minded to other countries and their cultures. It's a beautiful thing.
This week's question isn't really going to be just focused on k-pop, but in Korea and Korean culture.
What's one thing that really stands out to you in Korean culture? It can stand out in a good way where it makes you wish other countries did that too. OR it can stand out to you in a bad way where you wish that Korea didn't have that aspect mixed in its culture. Also, I'd like to know how you learned it. Perhaps it was through dramas, movies, songs, articles, the internet, etc. If this is too difficult of a question, then just answer with a type of Korean food or dish that stands out to you! Again, it can stand out in a good way where you want to try it or you think it's delicious. OR it can stand out in a bad way where you think it's disgusting!
Let's get to know each other's tastes, preferences, cultural backgrounds, etc.!
Also, don't forget to tune in for next week's KPI to see if your answers are read^^ And it's your LAST week to get your entries in for July's CD Drawings! Email me your name, address, the TOP TWO kpop CDs you'd like to receive to firstname.lastname@example.org.
