Spam = classy gift, and Konglishee tshirts

SOUTH KOREA | Friday, 10 November 2006 | Views [3999] | Comments [1]

Spam really is a luxury item here!

It’s true, really really. A product that none of us would touch is an item of class here. Apparently South Korea is the second largest consumer of the lovely pink gelatinous meat, and people give it as gifts for Thanksgiving as it’s just too nice to enjoy alone…

And as some further amusement...

A little – and somewhat rude - sample of Konglish tshirts to be found in the good ol’ RoK. They’re usually worn by unsuspecting people with no real translation of the meaning (if there’s one to be had), usually ajummas - old married women - and school children, some are serisouly worrying. 

Save the Apartheid, Boycott of the Lesbian, Nazi Lettuce Growers or Jesus of the Nuclear Whales

Hey Annie,

Having grown up in Korea, I have read many of these messed up shirts. Including one that said, "Just do me!" I told the girl what it meant and she went right into a store and bought a different shirt. She made me help her pick one that wasn't nasty.

My wife, son, and I came to the USA in 2000 and opened a Hapkido school in Florida. I trained at the Pyongtakd(SongTan) dojang under Grandmaster Chang Young-Shil. He is one of the original Hapkido instructors form long ago. He was very good friends with Myung jae-Nam, Han Bong-Soo, and Ji Han-Jae. They all trained together back the 50's and 60's. WHAO! Long time ago.

I enjoyed reading your journals. Thank you. It makes me cry and long to go back home to Korea. I miss it so much. I hope you come to our dojang in Florida someday and visit us. It would be a pleasure to meet you. ^_^
