나는 왜 한국을 사랑한다 – 리차드 쓴 매혹적인 이야기

나는 아직도 한국어를 잘 못 하지만 이 글을 숙제로 썼어요.
실수가 아마 많이 있지만 뜻은 분명하길 바라요.

나는 2011년에 처음 한국에 왔다. 그 전에는 한국에 대해 텔레비전에서만 접했다. 그래서 나는 벌써 한국에 대해 이미지를 가지고 있었다. 하지만 나는 그 때는 유럽에서만 여행해서 아시아가 완전 신비했다. 그 이유로 한국에서 봉사활동을 할 계획이었다. 서울에 도착하자마자 다른 세계에 온 것 같았다. 건물들은 다 하늘까지 닿고 공항에서 있는 표지판들 다 읽을 수 없는 언어로 썼다. 그러나 나는 봉사를 한 곳이 서울보다 더 익숙지 않은 곳이었다. 그 곳은 심지어 내가 본 드라마와 달랐다. 처음에는 좀 힘들 것이라고 생각했지만 저 외딴 곳에서 나는 실제 한국 생활을 경험했다.

나는 완도군에서 일주일 동안 생활한 것이 이년 동안 한국 텔레비전을 본 것보다 한국에 대해서 더 많이 알게 해주었다. 한국 사람들의 환대를 느낄 수 있었고 한국의 풍부한 문화를 직접 경험했다. 그 때 동안 나는 날마다 한국과 더 사랑에 빠졌다. 비록 나는 한국어를 못 하지만 사회 구성원처럼 느꼈다.

한국은 네덜란드보다 완전 다르지만 그 이유로 나에게 더 흥미 있다. 여기에서 네덜란드에서 못 찾는 것과 경험들이 있어서 이것을 다 경험할 때까지 나는 떠나고 싶지 않다.

    Hoi Richard,
    Ik heb de log in het Nederlands laten vertalen maar het is dan nog maar raden wat je precies bedoelde. Ik heb de conclusie getrokken dat Zuid Korea een heel aparte plaats in je hart heeft en de je het een fantastisch land vindt. Dat moet ook wel want anders had je het niet zo lang vol kunnen houden. Wij vinden dat knap van je hoor.

    Wij hopen dat het dit jaar weer goed mag gaan met je en dat we je volgend jaar kunnen bezoeken. Ik verheug me erop je weer in “levende” lijve te zien.

    Houdoe en houd je haaks.

    Nellie

#가을 인데 왜 #겨울 느낌 밖에 안 나?

It's supposedly #fall in #Korea but...it feels a lot like #winter.

#창덕궁 #Changdeokgung #Palace #서울 #옛날 #전통 #역사 #한국 #Korean #KoreanPalace #Seoul #traditional #history #autumn You know, when it comes to the '#audiophile' #earbuds market, a lot of recommended #headphones are actually from China. The reason is that most Western companies have given up on earbuds in favor of #IEM, so basically it's either cheap no-brand crap or apple #earphones.

Thankfully, some of the Chinese offerings are actually just as great as people's online raving suggests; The #Yuin #PK3 is almost decade old now, but still delivers the best #audio quality I've heard in an earbud for under $50, and the #Edifier #P180 is seriously such a giant step up from your garden variety earbuds at a price of only 12 bucks that I can't understand why they aren't more popular.

The #Auglamour #RX1 was a complete and utter disappointment with tinny #sound I never expected after all the positive talk about it on #Headfi though. Seems like most of the budget from the $22 price went into the packaging, which is admittedly quite pretty.

Of course my main pair of headphones, the #Koss #Portapro - which hasn't changed at all in design since 1984 because they are just THAT good - isn't Chinese but good ol' Murrikan, and I always love taking them out even though they make my head look huge in compassion to their small footprint.

The #JVC #HAFXC51 were tauted as amazing IEMs back when I got them but although they don't sound bad, I just can't get used to having those little pieces of plastic lodged so deeply into my ear canal.. So..thank God for #China, I guess. 
For helping old-fashioned men like me find ways to still comfortably enjoy their #music.

#Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #traditional #wood #ZuidKorea #Namsangol #Hanok #ancient #trees #green #home #서울 #남산골 #한옥 #자연 #전통 #나무 #한국 So glad I finally stopped wondering why I never go to any #concerts in #Korea and just got up and went to one.

@emuartspace was probably the most 'homely' (#gezellig) venue I've ever visited, @bowhang_smacksoft was as impressive as expected, @imhyeonjeong enchanted me with her beautiful voice and the duet of @musicsollee (거꾸로도 #이솔이) and #조현정 made me wish they'd spend more time together.

It might be a bit more work trying to find concerts here, but it's definitely worth it.

who split himself in two.
The one part never changed at all;
the other grew and grew.

The changeless part was always true,
The growing part was always new,
And I wondered, when the tale was through,
Which part was me, and which was you.
