What do you Bring to a Housewarming Party in Korea?

In the US I might bring a plant or maybe a loaf of homemade bread to a housewarming party. In Korea you bring toilet paper! I love it. Oh and Kwang tells me it's not just toilet paper, but very high quality toilet paper at least compared to the US. We're watching speed skating right now so he is in ultra competitive nationalist mode. Anyway I thought that this was just another interesting culture difference.


  1. Jennie, this sort of fact is awesome. I am so glad you're blogging. I wonder what kind of reaction I'd get taking toilet paper to a housewarming here? :-)

  2. I'm trying it next time I'm in the states! Hahaha. Or maybe I will bring you some "superior" toilet paper from Korea as a gift.
