Today is 화이트 대이 White Day, the day where men give candy to women (in Korea). This follows a month after Valentine’s Day, the day where women give candy to men in Korea. Both days are not to be confused with Black Day, where single people go and eat jjajangmyeon/자장면; 짜장면, or the inky black noodles.
I’ve been getting a lot of birthday wishes on facebook, so many from all over the world that I started to keep track. Here are some of my favorites.
