Dear Korea #135: Leg Cramps are a Thing

I recently read a news article saying how a person can gauge how healthy they are based on how easily they’re able to stand up without using their hands. Based on this information, my guy and I are pretty screwed.

I actually don’t mind restaurants where I have to sit on the floor too much, but a fair number of my friends (especially the taller ones) will actively avoid places that don’t have tables and chairs, no  matter how good the food may be. Even though I’m used to sitting on the floor, not using my legs for a few hours can lead to lots of wobbling, tripping, and even falling on my part. Then again, I’m just super clumsy..


Dear Korea #130: Just a Flesh Wound

There are way too many badly drawn hands in this strip. I should really stop messing around with my settings. I may need to redraw this in the future. Sigh.

For those who may not be aware, 호떡 (hotteok) is basically a stuffed pancake that’s filled with brown sugar, honey, chopped peanuts, and cinnamon before being cooked on a greased griddle.

Sounds good, right? It’s actually one of my favorite aspects of cooler seasons in South Korea, even if I manage to hurt myself every time I eat it. If you’ve managed to eat this stuff (not the baked kind, but the delicious, greasy version) without burning yourself, I give you major props. Even with the scalding hot filling, this stuff is definitely worth the pain.
