Every country and every culture has different wedding/marriage customs. However, no matter what country or culture you grew up in, getting married is probably one of the most important events in one's life. In Korea, for most people and families, getting married is considered to be an important event, not just for the two individuals directly invovled, but also for the two families. People in Korea often say that it's not just two people who become one when they marry, but it's two familes that become one big family. Today, in this episode of Ask Hyojin, Hyojin and Hyunwoo are talking about Korean wedding/marriage culture with Richard from Hallyuback. Part 2 of this video will be up soon, so stay tuned!

In Korean, in order to say something like "if I have to eat cold french fries, I'd rather not eat" or "if I am buying a suit, I might as well buy a matching tie", using the structure -(으)ㄹ 바에 is the easiest way to make your point clear. -(으)ㄹ 바에 is used to indicate that a second option is much better than the first (not eating is better than eating cold french fries), but it can also mean "as long as you are doing + V". Listen to this lesson and read the PDF to find out more about how to use -(으)ㄹ 바에.

We get a lot of questions from 'black people (We used the term black for the reason we talked about in the video ^^) ' asking if it's safe to come to Korea.  So, to answer that question, we invited Charly (CharlyCheer), who is a English teacher in Korea, and asked her to share her stories. We can't say everyone has the same/similar experience as Charly but we hope this video can help many people if they are debating whether or not to come to Korea :)  Enjoy!
