Going to Hongcheon tomorrow to help my old mak teachers filters hundreds of litres of Lotus Leaf and Pine Bud Makgeolli. The payment? Craft makgeolli by the litre. It's 미담 brand and the ajumma who makes it is awesome.

BOOM. She sells a litre (of the top layer 청주 with NO sediment/not watered down at all) of it for 40 000 and restos sell it for 65 000.

It'll be a good day tomorrow, friends.

..and Sunday?



I'm sure a maggeooli hangover, is worse than any other hangover surely?

Class is actually pretty diverse. I think my Korean class is actually the most diverse out of all the current classes here (the names/class groupings were all posted the first day). The only true common tongue amongst all of us is the one we're learning, which is interesting.  Otherwise it's sometimes kinda like a big game of telephone except for the one unlucky guy who doesn't know any English/Chinese/Japanese/etc.

Yeah, one of my friends took a Korean class for foreigners a few years ago and the common language among everyone in his class in order to be able to communicate with one another was Korean. My friend was the only native English speaker in his class; everyone else was from Japan, Russia, etc.

Cloudy here today and cold, only 25C. Glad I drove the car to work and not the motorbike. I woulda froze to death. The car makes a good excuse to stop and do some Christmas shopping. Gonna put the tree up tomorrow. Excited!
25C? 2 Celsius? 25 Fahrenheit?

25C = 25 Celsius = c-c-c-c-cold!

Yesterday I saw a sign that said "LIVE BAR". 

From my vantage point, the "R" was partially obscured by another sign, so it looked like an "I". 

Being a (mostly rural) Canadian, I read it as "Live Bait", and thought, "what a strange place to have a bait shop."

My weather app...agrees. lol
Although, it's in Fahrenheit but it said 9 degrees this morning, so a slight improvement.

You're quite right. In my mind though, fried chicken is different from a chicken burger, so I'm giving myself a pass.

Agreed they're totally different. A chicken burger is a BURGER. Meat between bun easily eaten! Fried chicken is a desperate rummage for the three or four decent pieces amidst an obstacle course of bone and tendon.

Not the same at all, geeze! haha

You just summed up my distaste for fried chicken. HAS to be boneless. It's, like, 2000W more and it's worth it for every...........won involved.

Yeah I do like Korean fried chicken for the most part but boneless is def the way to go. I actually chipped a tooth here on some delivery chicken once! The gf still prefers the bone-in (:wink:) variety though so if we order delivery together it's usually 반/반 time. I'll eat the reg stuff from time to time but I'm just super careful now.

Does anyone else have a red day on their school calendar for next Wednesday 20th December?

대통령선거예정일 - "Expected date of the president" (Naver translation).

I assume this is just out of date info and we don't actually get a day off.  Or is their some kind of presidential ceremony I don't know about  :laugh: haha?

CTs are all out on a field trip so I can't ask anyone  :lipsrsealed:

It was supposed to be election date. But since the impeachment and election happened in May, this day has been cancelled.

Yeah unfortunately that red day doesn't mean anything anymore. Our MOE sent out an email to everyone making it clear we are to show up that day    :police: :cry:

So now that is just phantom red day, whose only task is to taunt us. Though Christmas and New Years red days right around the corner.
