Kwang's Family

I have to admit I was a little nervous meeting Kwang's family. Both his parents do not speak English and my Korean is minimal. They are very sweet people who immediately made me feel at home. At one point Kwang's mother and I were left alone and she just took my hand spoke to me as if I knew what she was saying. I just nodded my head and smiled. It was pretty funny. Later in the week she called us up and asked why I haven't called her yet. Just more motivation to learn Korean!

Kwang's father asked me if I thought Kwang looked like either of his parents. I said I thought I could see his father through his eyes. He father responded, " that's because I'm so handsome". I had to chuckle because that is just what Kwang would have said.

  1. Your first few steps should be renting some dramas and be part of your daily routine... Get dramas with english subtitles at least!
    As a foreigner interacting with Asians, your experience is pretty "normal". Don't feel intimidated... Asians won't bite you... remember a few things about korean culture from our classes and you'll ace the real experience!
    This won't be as bad as the movie "meet the parents" ^^
