This time last year I was living in Korea and bowing to relatives I had never bowed to before, receiving envelopes of Korean ₩ in return. A lot of them were far too generous with their giving. It was as if all the bowing I would have done on the new year, had I grown up in Korea, was accumulated and given to me in lump sum.
This year I'm just in Boston as a regular ole student with no one to bow to but God (heading to church in a few mins!) I think I'll make dumpling soup tonight though... hehe.
And in celebration of Seol-Nal... here is a picture of me getting measured for my hanbok!
The hanbok I have on is just a sample. Will share mine soon :)
