200 won 的意义

200 won,或是两百韩币,只相等于马币六十仙左右。

今天是研究室室友与他女友的第二百天纪念日,我们研究室里每个人都给了他两百韩币。

照韩国人的习俗,当一对情人度过第一百天纪念日,周围的朋友都要给他一百韩币当作一个祝福、第二百天纪念日,给他两百韩币、第三百天纪念日,给他三百韩币,以此类推... 直至结婚/分手为止。

这习俗很新奇吧?单看题目就可以拍出一套二十集的韩剧了,哈哈哈。

韩国人工作、上研究所的时间太长了,星期一到星期五几乎都从早上十点工作到晚上十点,星期六也要做半天,哪来的时间拍拖?看过网上的一篇文章说,这里的人通常都搞办公室或校园恋情,因为每天见得最多的,就是同事或同学。韩国的通讯系统这么先进,也是因为大家要和情人,家人保持联系吧。平日没空见面,只好讲电话,看3G映像,玩Nateon(这是韩国人的instant messenger)...

所以这里的人,拍拖的时间都不长久。通常几个月过后就分手了。结果他们把一周年纪念日,改成“百日纪念日”来庆祝。还可以把纪念日 set 进电话里面的 mobile application “D-Day reminder”。真的很特别!

今天是26日,是我来到韩国满一个月的日子,也是和老公每个月的“拍拖纪念日”。还好我们已经结婚了,要不然朋友们就要每人给我 1000 韩币了。^^

This is interesting. I heard that korean couples can't stay overnight at each other's place too, so they must go motel if they want to spend the night together. HA... i thought they are very open-minded after I watched the crazy korean movie (forgot the title) n yrs ago ^^"
