Life in Korea

First Snowfall 🌨

We just had the first light snowfall in Seoul this afternoon! Do you know that the first snow has such a deep and wonderful meaning in Korea? Koreans have a superstitious belief that if you are out in the first snowfall of the year with someone you like, true love will blossom between you. Also, if you are with your significant other, you will be together foreveeeer. If you are a fan of K-dramas or movies, you probably have seen some sweet scenes or characters vowing to meet on the first snowfall.

Looking through the window, I reminisce my first snow experience in Korea. At that time, Hubby was working while I was just at home. He called to tell me that it was snowing (coz you can’t hear it, unlike the rain) and asked me to go out while still talking on the phone. He said that though we were not physically together, we were under the same sky. Then he started to pray and thank God for keeping us together. It was such a sweet memory, and I remember it every time the first snow falls.
