Sweet! Fresh Snow~

You may have heard that we had a record-breaking snowfall early on Monday. It was sweet.




Modern comedy is too fast paced. Nobody appreciates a really delicious awkward pause anymore.


And because I love snow, I went out in the snow to take some pictures. Jongmyo Shrine and Changgyeonggung were my destinations, and it was great. I'm going to write this post quickly, so please pardon lack of organizational coherence, etc.. If it really bugs you, well, you got what you paid for, didn't you?

This was built in a snowpile in myeongdong.

All around myeongdong the snow had been scraped and broom-brushed (can you believe people use brooms to clear snow in Korea? And nobody has a proper snow shovel.

Chunggyecheon at night always makes me happy.

Your clip of the Korean news guy in the snow made me laugh out loud...so funny.
Thanks for the photos of the snow too. I read about it on the English Hankyoreh, but it's nice to see actual photos.

Supposedly, he's saying, "It's so cold I can't open my eyes."

I like the last picture. It looks apocalyptic but pretty at the same time.
