Korean men don't cook -- simple as that. Athough current times are slowly changing with Western influence, it is still considered a womens job to maintain the household -- thus cooking and cleaning are religated to the women. Sung Hyun called me after work one day and said that he was going to cook for me.....that's great, I thought!!! He was so cute, working his little butt off in the kitchen, but he wouldn't let me get a picture of him. What's on the menu? Korean spam sausage dipped in eggs, served with sticky white rice and spicy kimchi.........yah that's what I thought!!!! I applaud him for his efforts, he is so wonderful to me.
Korean thought of the day -- If you've got a snack and you offer it to a Korean, they will ALWAYS reject the first offer. If they rejected abruptly without even looking at it, then they probably really don't want any. But if they look at it, pause and the reject hesitantly, they really want some, but they don't want to take any in case you just offered to be polite. But you're rude if you don't offer again!!!! Usually it's a good idea to offer at least three times (taken from Survival Korean, Stephen Revere).
