My first weekend in Korea was a three-day weekend because of the holiday, Independence Movement Day. I went to Busan to visit my mother. I hadn’t seen her in a year. It was amusing to have her fret over me, watching her analyze my every move, continuously criticizing me and my life choices —but in a loving way that only a Korean mom can do.
