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

This weekend the 156th Seoul Comic World was hosted in SETEC in Gangnam. Comic World is a little like the Japanese Comiket: a large event where individual artists or art circles are given the chance to show off and hopefully sell their work to a huge community of anime and manga fans. Unlike Comiket though, Comic World is hosted at least once a month, either in Seoul or in Busan. And tickets are only ₩5000! One of the greatest things about this event is how all the goods are so cheap. Cards usually go for ₩800 or ₩1,000; posters for ₩3,000; key chains for ₩5,000 and you can even get little plastic cutouts of characters you can put on your desk for about ₩15,000. The other greatest thing are the cosplayers: people who worked for weeks or months on a costume to show off their love for a certain character. Unfortunately, the bad weather yesterday meant there weren't many opportunities for taking pictures, but when the weather's good you'd be in for a treat! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Seoul #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul_Korea #ComicWorld #SeoulComicWorld #Anime #Manga #Comics #Deadpool #Spiderman #Ash #EvilDead #Cosplay #Marvel #Avengers #Pokemon #서울코믹월드 #코믹월드 #아니메 #만화 #코믹 #데드풀 #스파이더맨 #애시 #이블데드 #코스플레이 #마블 #어벤져스 #포케몬
A warm spring day like today is the perfect time to take a stroll around the Great Korean Beer Festival. And to ignore your thesis work and just hang out with friends without worrying just for a little while. Seoul has a number of beer festivals all around the year, and although none of them come even close to the magnificent glory of the Daegu Chimaek Festival, they're definitely a good way to get away from the (let's be honest, not very good) usual Korean beers. The Great Korean Beer Festival is taking place around COEX (Samseong station exit 5 or 6) right now until the 6th of May, so have a look when the weather's right! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #COEX #Samseong #Gangnam #Beer #Craftbeer #Koreancraftbeer #Festival #BeerFestival #CraftBeerFestival #Koreanbeer #KoreanFestival #GKBF #맥주 #크래프트비어 #크래프트맥주 #맥주축제 #축제 #코엑스 #5월 #삼성역 #대구치맥페스티벌
Absolute chills when the President of South Korea, Moon Jae-In, and the dictator of North Korea, Kim Jung-Un, joined hands and stepped over the military demarcation line together. What a beautiful and meaningful gesture. Although I, like many Koreans, feel like this might be just another little trick from the North to get their sanctions loosened for a while, there is a part of me that hopes it will mean more than that this time. There's even talk of signing an actual peace treaty to finally end the war that has officially been going on between the two Koreas since 1950! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #DMZ #NorthKorea #MoonJaeIn #KimJongUn #KimJungUn #NorthKorea #DPRK #Summit #unification #대한민국 #북한 #문재인 #김정은 #남북정상회담 #남북
Finally, just for an instant, my life looked just like one of those Apple commercials. It's 시험기간 (test week) in Korea, so cafés are filled to the brim with students sighing profound sighs of despair as they stare blankly at a pile of books and printouts, hoping the knowledge contained within them will somehow seep into their brains if only they sigh loudly enough. It's extra fun to visit cafés around this time of the year, not just because it's infinitely fascinating to observe Korean study rituals, but also because you'll automatically feel great about the fact that you do NOT have any tests to study for and can instead sit back and go through the birthday cards your family sent you for a birthday you almost forgot is now dawning very, very near. Good luck, guys, good luck. 화이팅, 한국 학생들! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Cafe #Café #Seoulcafe #HUFS #Hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #Midterms #Testweek #Study #Studying #Studygram #Birthday #Birthdaycard #Sony #Tentamenweek #ZuidKorea #Verjaardag #시험기간 #공부 #공부스타그램 #카페 #외대 #외대앞 #외대카페 #생일 #생일카드 #화이팅
If you ever find yourself in Gangnam around dinner time, and, like me, worry about being too poor (or budget conscious!) to pay 'Gangnam prices' for dinner, give this little Japanese restaurant called 'MomoSara' a chance. They serve delicious handmade Japanese style 'Hambageu' for ₩9,500, which is about as cheap as you can hope for around Gangnam. They're located about a 5 minute walk from exit 2. Also, they (unfortunately) didn't pay me to write this ㅋㅋ But sometimes it's nice to write a more 'Korean Instagram'-style post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Gangnam #Food #Foodstagram #Japanesefood #Hambagu #MomoSara #Gangnam #Gangnamfood #Japanese #서울 #강남 #강남맛집 #모모사라 #일본음식 #일본집 #맛집 #일본맛집 #함바그 #먹스타그램
In spring, locals and tourists alike can often be seen hunting for that perfect selca with a tree adorned with cherry blossoms in the background to let everyone on their instagram or facebook feed know that spring has started. Being from a country that I guess simply doesn't have any cherry trees, suddenly seeing the roads and campuses of Korea covered in a blanket of pink always brings a smile to my face. It's a shame there's only a limited time to enjoy them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #cherryblossom #sakura #blossom #spring #flowers #bloom #petals #lente #ZuidKorea #벗꽃 #봄 #서울 #피우다 #꽃 #사쿠라
