A delivery man came up to the gate at a Korean house (story is in Korea).
He rang the bell and said, "Anyone there?"
Next thing he heard was, "Nae" "Nae" (내) (Korean word for yes.)
But no one came to the gate.
So he knocked on the gate and asked again.
He heard it again, "Nae" "Nae"
But no one came again.
So he put down the delivery box and climbed up over the gate to get a peek.
What he saw was a goat and it was going, "Nae", "Nae".
Heard this joke recently and it gave me a chuckle.
The Seoul International Fireworks Festival
is an event that gets you out of the house and into a park with practically everyone else in the city. Indeed, it is an event to enjoy the outdoors and the spectacle of fiery light in the sky. But it is also one that tests your ability to be around hundreds of thousands of people.
Even when you think you are starting to know every nook and cranny of the place you live in, another one comes along to surprise you. This is how I felt when I recently visited Samcheonggak
a site up in the mountain side above Samcheongdong street area.
