Of Men and Fear

Under the streetlight glow, I’m walking to the next place on a Saturday night. I walk past a group of men clasping each other’s shoulders in a drunken lean, languishing down the street, blocking the path with their pace. I hear them start to make some noise and it’s directed towards me.

“Heeeeey shorty why you alone? (Oooo look at her. Where she going?) HEEEEEY~”

A cold feeling washes over me. Disgust. I choose to pretend I don’t hear them. There are too many people on the street ahead so I can’t escape. One of them gets mad.

“HEY YOU. I’M TALKING TO YOU. TURN AROUND.”


Oncheon’s Heosimcheong – The Largest Spa in Asia

For our second Korean jimjilbang experience, we decided to go big. The Heomsimcheong Spa in the neighborhood of Oncheon claims to be the largest spa fed by a natural hot spring in Asia. The popular complex, which also bills itself the Grand Hot Spring, includes a full hotel, an excellent brewery on the bottom floor and of course, a full array of baths and saunas.


Boy, Boys, Boys: Male Grooming

When I watch Korean dramas, it seems that the boys in Korea take very good care of themselves.
 
Maybe it’s only extremely rich Korean boys (such as the characters in “Boys Before Flowers” or “Brilliant Legacy”) or K-Pop stars, but it seems that boys in Korea pay more attention to their appearance than the ones in America.
Now I’m not suggesting that guys should start wearing guy-liner or headbands, but there are a few basic grooming habits that guys should have.
If you’ve already gone through puberty, it’s time to become a well-groomed man!
