Have you been to Korea? What's the weather like for all seasons?
I love trying out different foods from different cultures. What are some common dishes and street foods? smile
Oh I have seen images online where people write on locks and hook them onto a bridge or fence. What is the significance behind that?
Ahh last thing! Could you translate Theresa or something close to it?

Oh my yes I've been to Korea and I've lived all four seasons!

Spring = sunny and flowers everywhere! but chilly sad there's a term called "꽃샘추위" to describe Korea's weather, and it means "Cold because winter/coldness is jealous of flowers." One of the prettiest words in Korean.

Summer = rainy hot. LOTS OF RAIN with a chance of hurricanes.

Autumn = clear skies with no clouds. foggy and chilly.

Winter = very cold with snow!



so that's that, and the locks on fence/bridge...they are called "사랑의 자물쇠" - Love Padlocks. Many couples lock these padlocks (with their names on) to bridge/fence to symbolize their everlasting love. No one One significant example is in the N Seoul Tower, Seoul. The building officers are installing iron trees because all the spots in fences there have been taken. Here is a picture. This tradition in N Seoul Tower began as one couple did so and a TV show covered their story. However, I think Japan has this tradition too so I'm not sure how this thing began in the very first place.



Theresa is pronounced/spelled, 테레사 whee

안녕하세요. 3nodding

I think it's great what you're doing here. If I have questions, I'll be sure to ask them. When I'm more fluent in Korean, I hope you'll chat with me in your native language.

Oh really? I thought "어" was pronounced in between "oh" and "ah". :o

ah that makes so much sense! I've been looking all over for something that could help me with pronouncing "의" but couldn't find anything that was clear enough. This helped me out so much; thank you! emotion_yatta emotion_bigheart
