Pepero Day – A Celebration for the Popular Korean Snack

Tue, 2021-08-24 09:01

Have you ever heard of Pepero Day? You may have encountered this snack, but there’s actually a day to celebrate this in Korea. This day also happens to be the biggest shopping day globally because of Singles’ Day, which China popularized.

While the rest of the world is celebrating single people and shopping, Koreans likes to celebrate Pepero Day (빼빼로 데이 in Korean) on November 11th.

What is Pepero Day?

Pepero Day in Korea is an annual tradition that can be likened to Valentine’s Day, as it is usually celebrated among couples, and food or chocolatey treats are exchanged. On this day, however, the treat exchanged is specifically the snack Pepero. Although Valentine’s Day is also celebrated in South Korea, Pepero and Pepero Day is an equally beloved holiday to enjoy.

When is Pepero Day?

Pepero Day is annually celebrated on November 11th. This isn’t just a random date, as November 11 was chosen specifically because 11/11 looks like Pepero sticks! Along with that is the idea that to become tall and slender like a Pepero stick, 11 packets of Pepero must be eaten on November 11, at 11:11 am and 11:11 pm in exactly 11 seconds. There’s nothing to lose if you’ll give it a try!

What is Pocky Day?

There is also an incredibly similar holiday in Japan and celebrated on November 11th, called Pocky Day. This is also often called Pocky and Pretz Day, with Pretz being the savory counterpart of Pocky. On this day, sales for Pocky would surge as there are plenty of Pocky-related activities and marketing strategies put in place. Japanese people would also give Pocky to their loved ones as a gift to show their appreciation.

To sum it up, November 11 is a day of many celebrations! There’s the national Pocky Day in Japan, the Pepero Day in Korea, and Singles Day in China.

Is Pepero Day Single Day?

Pepero Day is a holiday that everyone can celebrate in South Korea, regardless of one’s relationship status. Coincidentally, this holiday is celebrated on the same day as Singles’ Day in China. However, these are not the same holidays and are also celebrated differently. Singles’ Day or 11/11 Day in China is a day dedicated to shopping for people not in a relationship or singles.

What exactly is Pepero?

Peperos are tall and thin biscuit-like sticks covered in chocolate. Lotte Confectionery Corporation manufactured this product in South Korea. Besides the original milk chocolate flavor, many other flavors have also emerged for these biscuit sticks, and each new year another one seems to pop up. Some popular Pepero flavors are the following: almond, green tea, cookies & cream, and dark chocolate. Even flavors like cheddar cheese exist for Pepero now!

Not all pepero sticks are coated with chocolate or some other flavor. Some peperos have chocolate filling instead of a coating, some have two different coating flavors, and other peperos are “super-sized.” Shortly put, there is a pepero to love for everyone in the world!

Pepero vs Pocky

As described above, Peperos are famous snacks in South Korea which are chocolate-covered, thin cookie sticks. If you already have a picture in mind, it won’t be difficult to imagine what a Pocky looks like. You can definitely notice the resemblance between Pepero and Pocky as they are identical cookie stick treats. However, one brand is made in South Korea and the other in Japan.

Pocky rose to fame in Japan in 1966 as a “snack with a handle” produced by the company Ezaki Glico. It can be considered as Pepero’s foreign relative from Japan. Pocky was invented before Pepero, so one could raise whether Pepero is a copy of Pocky. Similarly, Pepero Day was first to become a commercial holiday to celebrate, and Pocky Day became a holiday on the same day in Japan a little later.

What is the history of Pepero Day in South Korea?

It is actually not entirely known how the celebration for Pepero Day in Korea started. One theory is that Pepero Day in Korea is celebrated on November 11th because of the appearance of a Pepero stick, looking like the number 1. Another is that it was popularized by two Korean middle school girls who exchanged Pepero sticks with each other. They did so in hopes of becoming tall and thin, just like how the Pepero snacks look like.

The latter story is how Lotte Corporation, the manufacturer of Pepero in South Korea, began advertising Pepero Day in 1997. And successfully so, as from 2012 onward they make 50% of their whole year’s pepero sales on Pepero Day! If you want to follow the possible origin story and celebrate Pepero Day yourself, then you ought to eat 11 boxes of pepero on that day!

How is Pepero Day in Korea celebrated?

In observance of Pepero Day in South Korea, people celebrate it by giving boxes of Pepero as gifts every November 11th. They are typically exchanged between couples, but people can generally give them to people they love, like their friends, co-workers, or family members, as a symbol of their affection. The price won’t be a concern since it’s such a cheap snack that the barrier to purchasing a box or two for someone is low, even outside of the circle of loved ones.

Pepero Day ideas for a gift

Apart from exchanging the Pepero snacks, there are other ways of giving gifts for Pepero Day, which is especially common among couples. Instead of buying a regular box of Pepero for each other, many will purchase other things like special gift baskets on sale during the Pepero Day holiday.

Pepero-inspired items

If you want to set yourself apart, you can give something apart from the actual Pepero snack. Some people are also extra creative and even prepare the Peperos by hand! You can also find Pepero cushions to give as gifts, among other varieties of gifts that are appropriate to give on Pepero Day. If you are in South Korea, you may even expect to receive coupons you can use to purchase boxes of Pepero from your friends on Kakaotalk.

Money Pepero

But what if your loved one doesn’t like sweets? The perfect solution for that is the 돈 빼빼로 (donppaeppaero)! This is a popular gift idea that was inspired by the Pepero snack. You need to roll up some paper bills to make it look like Pepero sticks. Then put these rolled-up bills in a rectangular box similar to that of a Pepero’s. The finished product would then be the “Money Pepero.”

A Pepero for yourself

While it’s fun to have someone to exchange or give gifts to, it’s also nice to give one to yourself! Treat yourself to tons of delicious Pepero, in various flavors, from nude pepero to double-coated ones. Or, if you want, perhaps find a Korean to treat to Pepero on November 11th to have a feel of one of Korea’s traditions! It doesn’t have to be a Valentine’s Day-like exchange, just a show of friendship or appreciation.

How do you say Happy Pepero Day?

If you want to greet someone “Happy Pepero Day,” you can say it as 빼빼로데이 축하해요! (ppaeppaerodei chukahaeyo!) in Korean. Pepero Day is a celebration; thus, it’s just right to greet one another on this special day. You can also write this down on a note that comes with your Pepero gift. You can master how to write this correctly in Hangeul by learning the Korean alphabet.

What is the Pepero Game?

Another fun way to enjoy your Pepero is through the Pepero game. This game is played in pairs where each pair need to eat a Pepero together, biting it off from each end. The pair with the shortest piece left wins. If you’re having a hard time imagining how it is played, think of the scene with the spaghetti in the movie Lady and the Tramp. This game is also often played in Korean variety shows.

Now that you know all about this delicious cookie stick snack in South Korea and also about how to celebrate Pepero Day on November 11th, you’re all prepared for when the day arrives! Are you excited to experience your first Pepero Day from reading this article? Which pepero flavor do you intend to try first once you’re in South Korea? You may also want to know about the other unique holidays in South Korea like White Day and Black Day next!

Dongguksa Temple – 동국사 (Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do)

Mon, 2021-08-23 23:40
The Japanese-style Daeung-jeon Hall at Dongguksa Temple in Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do. Temple History

Dongguksa Temple is located in Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do. What sets this Buddhist temple apart from all other Buddhist temples in Korea is that it’s the only temple still in existence, and operating, that was built by the Japanese during Japanese Colonial rule (1910-1945).

With the opening of the port in Busan in 1877, after the signing of the Japan–Korea Treaty of 1876, not only did it open Korea up for trade and exploitation, but it also allowed Japanese Buddhism to enter Korea, as well. This was done at the request of the Japanese government. And in 1904, a form of Japanese Pure Land Buddhism began missionary work in Gunsan. The reason for these efforts to introduce Japanese Buddhism into Korea through missionary work was to help culturally assimilate, on a much broader scale, Koreans into Japanese culture, language, and history.

Later, on June 3rd, 1911, General Count Terauchi Masatake (1910-1916), who was the Governor-General of Chosen, issued a declaration for the furtherment of Japanese Buddhism on the Korean peninsula. This then led to the establishment of Buddhist temples throughout the Korean peninsula. This would result in the missionary establishment of Dongguksa Temple in 1909 in Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do. When Dongguksa Temple was first built, it was known as Geumgangsa Temple, or “Diamond Temple” in English, and it was based upon Shingon Buddhism. Dongguksa Temple, formerly Geumgangsa Temple, added to the establishment of other Japanese Buddhist temples in Gunsan including Bonwonsa Temple and Anguksa Temple.

Finally, in July, 1913, the monk Uchida received land from twenty-nine local Gunsan Japanese Buddhist believers to build the temple, Dongguksa Temple (formerly Geumgangsa Temple); who, in turn, had received this land where Dongguksa Temple is currently located from two large Japanese land owners named Kumamoto and Miyazaki.

After the liberation of the Korean peninsula from the yoke of Japanese oppression on August 15th, 1945, by the U.S. military, the temple would resume functioning as a temple in 1947. The Korean Buddhist monk Kim Nam-gok (1913-1983) would change the name of the temple from Geumgangsa Temple to Dongguksa Temple. And Dongguksa Temple was registered as a subsidiary temple to the neighbouring Jogye-jong Order temple, Seonunsa Temple, in 1970.

In total, Dongguksa Temple is home to two Korean government recognized historical artifacts. First, is the Clay Sakyamuni Buddha Triad and Excavated Relics of Dongguksa Temple, which is Korean Treasure #1718. And the other is the Daeung-jeon Hall of Dongguksa Temple, which is National Registered Cultural Heritage #64.

Temple Layout

You first make your way towards the rather unassuming temple grounds of Dongguksa Temple up side streets. The temple is situated next to an elementary school. Furthermore, it’s located on a compact piece of land and backed by the beautiful bamboo forest of Mt. Wolmyeongsan (101.3 m). Up a slight incline to your left, you’ll suddenly arrive at the gates of the temple. The original name of the temple, Geumgangsa Temple, can still faintly be seen on the entry gate posts to the temple; however, they have been vandalized.

Past the entry gate, and now squarely standing in the centre of the compact temple grounds, you’ll instantly realize that this temple is unlike any other in Korea. The style of the Daeung-jeon Hall, which stands in the middle of the temple grounds, is built architecturally in the style of the Edo period (1603-1868). The Daeung-jeon Hall consists of a single eaves without the traditional Korean dancheong colours. In fact, the entire Daeung-jeon Hall is void of the traditional dancheong colours common to all Korean Buddhist temples. Instead, the Daeung-jeon Hall is stripped of these colours and left remaining in a far more traditional simplistic Japanese Buddhist temple colour motif. Also, its roof is long and slopping with a high pitched design. The outer walls of the building have several windows, which is also uncommon to Korean Buddhist architecture. Also what differentiates this Japanese designed Daeung-jeon Hall is the connecting hallway from the main hall to the monks’ living quarters known as “Yosachae” in Korean.

When you first approach the front entry to the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll notice that there are a pair of sliding wooden doors that need to be pushed open to gain entry to the main hall. These steep, horizontal sliding doors are another feature of the Japanese architecture of the Daeung-jeon Hall at Dongguksa Temple. Stepping inside the Daeung-jeon Hall, another feature that you’ll find dissimilar from Korean temples are the four pillars surrounding the main altar. As for the triad of statues on the main altar, they date back to 1650, and they’re Korean Treasure #1718. The triad is a rare combination inside a Daeung-jeon Hall with Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha) in the centre joined by two of the Buddha’s principal disciples of Ananda and Mahakasyapa.

To the immediate left of the main altar triad is a painting dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit) which is joined to the left by a shrine dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). And to the immediate right of the main altar triad is a painting dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) which is joined to the right by the Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). It’s also to the right of these paintings that you find the entry to the corridor that leads towards the Yosachae. While the Yosachae was once the residence to the Japanese monks that once called the temple home, it’s now an administrative office at Dongguksa Temple.

The other temple structures that visitors can explore at Dongguksa Temple are situated to the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall. And like the Daeung-jeon Hall, they are built in the style of Japanese architecture. The first is the diminutive Cheonbul-jeon Hall. Stepping inside the Cheonbul-jeon Hall, you’ll find a contemplative statue of Mireuk-bosal (The Future Buddha) surrounded by a thousand tiny golden statues of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). And the exterior, like the Daeung-jeon Hall, is void of the traditional dancheong colours.

To the left of the Cheonbul-jeon Hall, you’ll find the Japanese style bell pavilion with a small bronze bell inside it. Surrounding the Jong-ru are a couple dozen divinity stones. There’s also a small lotus pond to the left of the Japanese style Jong-ru, as well. And more recently, “The Statue of a Girl of Peace in Gunsan,” meant to symbolize the suffering of Korean Comfort Women, was added to the temple grounds in August, 2015 to commemorate the suffering of Koreans during Japanese Colonial Rule. Just beyond this statue is the side entry to the temple grounds at Dongguksa Temple.

How To Get There

From the Gunsan Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to take Bus #33, #53, #54, #71, or #82, and get off at the “Myeongsan Sageo-ri – 명산 시거리” bus stop. The bus ride should take anywhere from ten to fifteen minutes. From where the bus drops you off, you’ll need to walk an additional one hundred metres, or two minutes, first to the west and then to the south, until you finally arrive at Dongguksa Temple.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10

So much of Dongguksa Temple’s overall rating and impressions are interconnected with its troubled past. You won’t find anything resembling Dongguksa Temple throughout the rest of South Korea. Its Japanese-style architecture stands out for its uniqueness against the backdrop of Korean architecture and colours. Dongguksa Temple stands as a monument to all that the Korean people have suffered and overcome. And while it may be difficult to visit with its tragic history in mind, it’s worth it all the same.

(으)리라(고) - Intermediate Grammar | Korean FAQ

Mon, 2021-08-23 15:50

The grammar form (으)리라(고) is an intermediate level form which gets used commonly in both speech and writing. And although it has a bit of an old style feeling, it's still used today and you should be aware of it.

Fortunately, this form is simpler than it looks, and even has a modern equivalent (sort of) that can help it make more sense.

In this video I summarize how to use (으)리라(고) in just 5 minutes.

Dongmyeong Bulwon – 동명불원 (Nam-gu, Busan)

Sun, 2021-08-22 23:34
The Cheonwangmun Gate at Dongmyeong Bulwon in Nam-gu, Busan. Temple History

Dongmyeong Bulwon is located in the southern part of Busan in Nam-gu. In fact, it’s situated just south of the U.N. Cemetery in Busan and just north of Mt. Bongorisan (173.3 m). The name of the temple might sound a bit strange because it doesn’t end with the common “sa” suffix. Instead, the temple is considered a “Bulwon” which means “The Buddha’s Oath” in English. What this specifically means is a reference to the Buddha making an oath to save all sentient beings.

Dongmyeong Bulwon is a modern temple. It was first opened on May 22nd, 1977. In total, the Dongmyeong Bulwon grounds measure 2,700 pyeong, or 9,000 square metres in size. Dongmyeong Bulwon was built by the late Chairman of Dongmyeong Wood, Kang Seok-jin. It was built for the good luck of the ten thousand families of the workers that worked at the Dongmyeong Wood factory. It was also built for Kang’s deceased parents and the prosperity of Korea.

One of the temple’s key features is the massive Brahma Bell that’s the largest of its kind in Korea. It weighs an impressive twenty-seven tons, which is six tons more than the famed Emile Bell in Gyeongju. As for its design, it has Bicheon (Flying Heavenly Deities) adorning it, and it’s impressive in both size and beauty.

Temple Layout

When you first arrive at the temple, and turn left off of the busy Busan street, you’ll be greeted by one of the more impressive Cheonwangmun Gates in all of Korea. Sitting inside of this gate are four towering, and menacing, statues of the Four Heavenly Kings. They are dressed regally; and yet, they are quite intimidating. They are trampling underfoot some of the more diabolical demons that you’ll find inside a Cheonwangmun Gate. This gate is adorned with a large lion-headed door knocker, as well as a metal manja (swastika). It also has two anime-like paintings of Miljeok Geumgang and Narayeon Geumgang on the temple courtyard side of the Cheonwangmun Gate, as well.

As you first enter the temple courtyard, you’ll notice the Jong-ru (Bell Pavilion) to your left. This is the structure that houses the amazing twenty-seven ton Brahma Bell. To your right, on the other hand, is the Gwaneum-jeon Hall. Housed inside this temple shrine hall, you’ll find a tranquil statue dedicated Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) seated in the centre of the main altar. In Gwanseeum-bosal’s right hand, you’ll find that she’s holding a medicinal bottle of ambrosia. Joining this seated statue of Gwanseeum-bosal on the main altar is a dongja (attendant) to the right and a fierce image of Yongwang (The Dragon King) to the left.

All the structures and statues at Dongmyeong Bulwon are quite large, but it’s the mammoth two-story Daeung-jeon Hall that’s the largest. In fact, it’s one of the largest main halls that you’ll find at a Korean Buddhist temple. Unfortunately because it’s made from concrete, some of the Daeung-jeon Hall’s exterior paintings are already fading. As a result, the exterior isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing to the eye. However, with all that being said, the cavernous interior of the Daeung-jeon Hall is beautiful. Sitting on the main altar are three large statues. Sitting in the centre of this triad is Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This image is joined on either side by Yeondeung-bul (The Past Buddha) and Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha). Looking up at the ceiling of the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll notice an impressive dragon mural. To the right of the main altar is a painting and statue dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). And to the left is a rather plain Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

Out in front of the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find two highly original pagodas. The pagoda to the left is Deokmang-tap, while the pagoda to the right is named Budeok-tap. Both pagodas are nearly identical in appearance. These pagodas are five stories high; and rather interestingly, between the fourth and fifth story, you’ll find four smaller sized pagodas. They almost look like a rook in chess.

To the left of these pagodas and the Daeung-jeon Hall, you’ll find two additional temple shrine halls. The first is the Nahan-jeon Hall which houses sixteen beautifully crafted images of the Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha). These statues then surround a large golden statue of Seokgamoni-bul that sits in the centre of the main altar. And to the right of the Nahan-jeon Hall is the Geukrak-jeon Hall. This temple shrine hall is a little hidden behind shrubbery that grows extensively throughout the entire temple grounds. Sitting on the main altar of the Geukrak-jeon Hall is a statue of Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise). This statue is flanked on the main altar by Gwanseeum-bosal and Daesaeji-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom and Power for Amita-bul).

Almost hidden away, and up a set of stairs to the left of the Daeung-jeon Hall, is an upper courtyard that houses three shaman shrine halls. The first of these three is the Dokseong-gak Hall. The large statue of Dokseong (The Lonely Saint) that sits inside this shaman shrine hall wears long, regal clothes. The next shaman shrine hall is the Chilseong-gak Hall. Housed inside this temple shrine hall is a beautiful statue and painting dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars). And the final shaman shrine hall at Dongmyeong Bulwon is the Sanshin-gak Hall. Housed inside this hall is another large sized statue; this time, dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit). Sanshin is joined by an even larger statue of his accompanying tiger.

How To Get There

To get to Dongmyeong Bulwon, you’ll first need to take the Busan subway until you get to Daeyeon Station, which is stop #213. From there, go out exit #10 and walk towards the U.N. cemetery, which will take about fifteen minutes. From the U.N. cemetery, you’ll need to walk an additional fifteen minutes towards the mountains. The signs along the way should help guide you towards the Dongmyeong Bulwon temple grounds.

Overall Rating: 7/10

Everything at Dongmyeong Bulwon seems to be large in size. With its massive statues inside each of the temple shrine halls. Additionally, have a look at the impressive Cheonwangmun Gate (both inside and out), the statue of Yongwang inside the Gwaneum-jeon Hall, and the pair of uniquely designed stone pagodas out in front of the Daeung-jeon Hall. The temple grounds are a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. The only drawback is that most of the temple structures appear to be made of concrete.

Fishing in Busan?

Sun, 2021-08-22 07:37

I'm looking to go fishing with a friend. (I recently moved to Busan.) No boat or anything but we'll need to rent equipment. We're not looking for anything too intense, just somewhere and cast a few lines. 

Scratch that...if there's a boat option, please post because I'd consider that if it's affordable.

Thanks in advance for the reply.

Native Korean teacher versus non-native Korean teacher | A Glass with Billy

Fri, 2021-08-20 15:37

Which is better, a native or non-native Korean teacher?

Both have their strengths and weaknesses, but exactly what are those? Is there a reason someone should not choose a native teacher, or should not choose a non-native teacher (such as myself)?

I met up with "Korean Jream" and we shared which one you should choose, and why.
