After a busy Christmas week, I'm back! My boyfriend is visiting, and seeing his beautiful face reminds me of all the beautiful Korean men in history. So I wanted to introduce a historical word to my readers today:화랑 (hwa-rang)
During the Shilla Dynasty, the Hwarang
were a group of male youth that dressed well, wore makeup and were trained in horsemanship, archery, javelin, and swordsmanship (ㅋㅋ). The Hwarang were known for their prostitution and homosexuality. Sounds like the Shilla Dynasty was pretty fun. Wikipedia has a pretty extensive article on the Hwarang
if you want to learn more.
