Happy Children's Day!
Today is Children's Day. This is the Christmas of Korea when kids get the day off school. Parents take their kids to parks (such as Lotte World and Everland- if you don't have to go there today, don't), buy them presents, and just dedicate the entire day to them.
Today I'm going with a bunch of Seoul Eats Readers to a halfway house down in the South of Seoul. We're going to make lunch, clean their house, and give them presents. Most of the kids today will probably feel very depressed because they would like to spend the day with their parents- we hope our gesture will lift their spirits.
Also, as a reminder, it's Spicy Wednesday at 6pm at Phillies in Haebangchon. My friend Susanna is cooking curry for charity. Go here for more information: Facebook
