Whats Chuseok( 추석)?
Well the Koreans called it thanks giving day
and apparently is one of the biggest important traditional Korean holidays ever held.
Most Koreans would go back to their hometown and visit their relatives and gather all together for a meal.
***the hanja (chinese character) for chuseok is 秋夕
also see wikipedia
During Chuseok there is many types of traditional delicacies such as songpyeon (송편), a type of Korean rice cake (also known as tteok in korea ) that has fillings inside.
Songpyeon reminds me of tangyuen and mocchi somehow but taste far harder (and a lil' saltier?) than it orz.
The dorm is closed during chuseok ,
so I had to move back to my host families house for 6 days and 5 nights.
My chuseok holiday was pretty interesting, we didn’t go all the way to taebek to visit Aboji’s family, but instead we stayed put in Gwang Ju and just cooked all the Chuseok Korean Food.
OAMGEEE KOREAN CHUSEOK FOOD TASTE SO GOOOOOD
ok I hate Korean food but ....
HNGHHHH CHUSEOK FEWD
They had this satay (?) thingy that has meat, and mushroom and cucumber and it

then they dip it in the egg batter and then cook it over the grill (?)
AND OMAGAHHHHH SOOOOO GOOOOOD SCREW THE CALLORIESSSS OMAGAHHHHHHHHHH .

On Tuesday, my host family brought me to another sinful place,
Aka the heaven for all kimchiland cosplayers.
I felt so bad because I bought so much things in Dongdaemun and my host parents payed it for me because I forgotten to take the money out of the atm earlier on.
After that she said :
" CHUSEOK SEONG MUL (chuseok present) "
and I was like

Sadly le fabric market wasn’t open because I really had to buy cloth to sew for my cw plans.
At night, we went to this Korean old band concert called Delgukhwa (들국화).
Apparently they are also known as the Korean Beatles back in the old generations.
I had to admit that their songs are pretty good, especially ‘Jeju island blue night’,
which was written by Choi SungWon whom is one of the members in Delgukhwa.
This song is really chill and the melody is really relaxing and beautiful.
Till today that song still remains as one of the famous classic Korean rock songs and could sometimes heard covered by many k-pop singers and used in drama shows.
dongseng, oma, me and aba!
Sadly no photos, during the concert
so I only took photos outside the location where to concert were held at.
The rest of my holidays when we did not go out was spend at home where I had time to draw and sleep HAHAHHAHA like a very lifeless otaku as usual.
But overall my holidays were awesome!!
