~ A traditional method of artistic writing ~
It’s no secret and you may have already guessed from my occasional Korean Drama schpiel on Twitter, that I have a very strong appreciation for Korean Culture, and that includes Customs, Traditions, Language, Food, Entertainment, Art and most recently Literature. I often get asked “So what made you get into Korean Culture and what do you love about it?” and as I’m currently learning Korean I usually get the surprised expression followed by “Oh, you’re learning Korean!? What made you want to learn it?” to which I reply; “I just love the Korean culture, language, Dramas, Music and of course the Food!” ~ which is the more condensed answer.
A more detailed and lengthy answer would be; ”I really love the language ~ It’s beautiful in every sense of the word; Nice to speak and nice to listen to. The sentence structure fascinates me. Hangul (The Korean Alphabet) to me looks especially beautiful written in calligraphy. I find Korean customs and traditions admirable. Korean Street Art/Graffiti with Calligraphy incorporated is my favourite kind. Korean food is hands down my favourite cuisine of all time ~ Japanese, Thai and Greek are close behind but Hanshik wins for sure. When it comes to Korean Music; I love all kinds; Classical, K-Indie and of course a little K-Pop. And when it comes to Korean Dramas, I’m well known to lose out on hours of sleep just to get in “one more episode” which let’s face it, is impossible because ~ Cliffhangers amirite? haha!
