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. You can watch the part 1 of this video HERE 🙂

    We just came back from Seoul (left Saturday), and on our way to the airport, we were passed by numerous cars with “just married”-type decorations going 100 miles an hour, which we were assuming is so they could make their flight.

    Public service announcement: When you honeymoon in Hawaii, don’t bring the chestnuts from your 폐백 with you. We watched a couple getting them confiscated. They have dogs that catch you when you bring them.

      Yes, right. Nowadays, people also often ask newly married couple not to bring the chestnuts to airport.
