Gangnam Style Continues

Here is a more recent review of the craze surrounding PSY’s Gangnam Style.

You can read their blog: Eat Your Kimchi! and about Gangnam Style for Music Mondays.

Parody video by Simon and Martina!

Bloopers!                        They are awesome!

Britney Spears even learns the horse dance from PSY himself while on Ellen’s show.

This is getting a lot of press.

“Hi, I’m PSY from Korea. How are you?” Yeah, that is totally for a Korean audience!  Sigh, we know you are from Korea … also we don’t especially care unless we are Korean.

I thought you would like this.

Go ahead, watch it.

Two LA area radio stations played this song today (just that I personally heard while driving).



No, I don’t need sleep.  I have things to do.  I need to get a head-start on the day since last night.

This won’t impair my driving.

Yes, I hesitated a second while spelling impaired.

Hey wait, who is that Korean man singing … ?

Awww, hell to the no!


Crying for the First Time in a Long Time

I used to cry almost every single day.  And by “cry” I mean uncontrollably weep until my voice left and breathing was only possible with gasps.

But I haven’t cried much in the last few weeks.

I did cry, after watching the happy couple finally start to date in the K-drama I love Lee Tae Ri.

Seeing young, innocent, hopeful love beginning invoked my own heartache and released my tears.

I was like that once.

And it is all over.

I can never return to the one I loved or the person I was when I fell in love.

First love has ended.  My innocence has truly died.


Daily Life in Korea 53

I ordered a salad without dressing at a burger joint by Busan University.

It had salt and pepper on it.

A lot of salt and pepper.



Daily Life in Korea 42

Sometimes I hear old English songs sung in Korean, for example, while watching the Korean drama Love Rain.

When I can remember the English words, I just think of those known lyrics overtop of the weird, unfamiliar Korean lyrics (which are just an affront to the original song).

But when I can’t remember the original lyrics, but just remember the melody-that is infuriating.

During those moments, all I can think is that I know this is a song I know but that I can’t remember.



Daily Life in Korea 39

I totally forgot today was Black Day-or a day that single Koreans eat Chinese black bean sauce noodles.

짜장면 or these noodles are pretty yummy and you can usually get them at any Chinese restaurant in Korea and often as a set for two people with a dish like sweet and sour pork to share.

Jjajangmyeon is pretty cheap too-usually only three or four dollars.

But on April 14th, all the singles who didn’t get candy or chocolate on White Day or Valentine’s Day eat Jjajangmyeon on Black Day.

Actually though, every 14th day of each month is a special “holiday” in Korea with some sort of couples’ gimmick going on.  Once I got a rose on Rose Day.  That is May 14th.  It is going to be my last day of work in South Korea.  It is also known as Yellow Day or a day to eat curry.

Who wants to go get some curry for dinner with me?  Or give me a rose? ^.~
