Suwon Station: Market

Tonight I went to a DVD bang near Ajou and watched Before Sunset, but first took a bus to Suwon Station to walk around the traditional market. I also found myself in the red light district but, after getting couple of cat calls, left. One Korean man yelled, "fantastic," at me, nudging his friend as they smoked outside. I didn't see any prostitutes but I did see "love" hotels and motels with buzzing neon signs, pictures of Russian girls, and sketchy movie houses.

In the traditional market, this woman (below) saw me taking photos of three Korean girls. She asked where I was from, and invited me to her Vietnamese restaurant for a cup of coffee. She spoke fluent Korean but only a few English words. She wanted to see her son talk English, but he was totally uninterested. He rolled around the floor, and picked stones off the soles of his shoes - did everything but say, "hi" in English. It was his day off school.

I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a
blog that's equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you've
hit the nail onn the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking
intelligently about. I'm very happy I came across this in my search for somethiing relating to this.
