I've never traveled to Korea before, but it's the first country on my travel list when I have a lot of money to travel. Why? Because I loved the Korean culture when I was younger than 8 years old. All these times I've dreamed of going there someday. The first time I ate kimchi was when I was in middle school. It did not taste that well when I first attempt to eat it. However, I noticed that as it ages it taste better. I've also learned how to make kimchi by myself with the help of online tutorials. ㅋㅋ Sometimes when I have kimchi, I like to eat it with 라면. If I can drive, I'll definitely have to go buy Korean ingredients from Asian stores near my city, to make Korean foods that I've always craved for. The list of Korean food I've been craving for: ddeokbokki, jjajangmyeon, kimchi jjigae, bibimbap, galbi, jangeogui, samgyeopsal and so much more! 한복 pronounced hanbok, are Korean traditional clothes. I really want to try it on because they look so pretty and cute. If I have enough money, I will definitely buy a hanbok outfit. :) Saving up! When I see hanbok, I think of the wonderful age of Korea. So graceful. I like to watch old historical Korean dramas, because it makes me feel like I am in the historical age how the people wear hanbok and the king. WOW! XD So far I've seen, Iljimae and Sungkyunkwan Scandal, both of those dramas take place in historical times. I heard of Chuno, but haven't got the time to watch it. However, it's next on my list of Korean dramas. If there are more, please recommend it to me. I'll definitely have to watch them. In addition, Korean music are wonderful! Have you heard of 아리랑 Arirang? It's a very famous Korean folk song. Honestly, I don't know the meaning of the lyrics word by word, but I remember that it is about passing the mountain but that mountain is a dreamland where lovers unite. It's also about a maid who was killed by her lover. I forgot, but it's somewhere like that. I really appreciate this song because it is the song between the North and South Korea. This song bonds them together even though Korea is separated. Check this song out on YouTube. :) My experience with the Korean culture is endless, because I still want to learn more. By the way, don't forget to appreciate the Korean language! I've been learning it by myself for more than 2 years and I'm still a beginner. If only I have a lot of time and determination, I think I would have improved to be on the intermediate level. But taking time to adjust to the language is not bad. So far, I've learned basic greetings and sentences. Still have to learn and memorize vocabs, sentence grammar, and structure. I also need to practice pronouncing them correctly and efficiently. The alphabet known as 한글 pronounced hangeul is very easy to memorize. Once you mastered it, then your can read Korean! The difficult part is that you don't know what it means until you learn the language that's what I realized when I first learn Korean. Lastly, I'm majoring in teaching and English. I'm hoping to teach English abroad in Korea after I get my teaching credential and/or master degree. That would be great right? :) So this is all my experience with Korean culture so far. I'm still learning. Practice makes perfect. Someday, my dreams will come true. I believe.
Let's share our experience on the Korean culture. Even if you haven't traveled to Korea yet like me, what is your overall experience on the Korean culture? Let it be food, music, clothes, Korean films, etc. I would like to read your experience. :) Feel free to comment.
