The very first dinner invitation from my student Kyungju was indeed very special; it’s an experience that I will carry with me after I leave Korea and move onto other pursuits. I believe that I am the envy of many of my coworkers at Chungdahm, although no one willopenly admit it. I’m getting to better know my students family; Kyungju’s Dad works for POSCO, one of the top three companies in Korea and her mom Su-Eun majored in Art in college. Kyunju has a younger sister, 8 years old who is just adorable. Our time together is always very special.
On my second invitation to Kyungju’s house, I decided to take along my pal, Hari. Hari is also a vegetarian, so I thought that there wouldn’t be much fuss for them to incorporate foods that he is able to eat. Also invited to dinner was boy just a little older that Kyunju who is the son of one of her Dad’s, Dong Hyun’s, friend.
