Dear WorknPlay Readers,

General Manager Emily emily@worknplay.co.kr 070-76025885

The first time I bought a take-away pizza in Korea, I thought some kind of special event must be going on. Wrapped around the box, was a beautiful red ribbon. How lovely, I thought. Especially being accustomed to

the fast food industry in England, where spotty-faced adolescents just grunt, and then virtually throw the box at you. So I truly appreciated such a thoughtful touch, and marched off with my pizza present, all the more thrilled to be indulging in such a greasy feast. Actually, it’s not just the ribbon that impresses me about pizza in Korea. I find the toppings delicious too. Give me a sweet potato–filled crust with prawns, over a bog-standard pepperoni, any day. And I love the corn too. Many foreigners find putting corn on pizza strange, but it’s pretty popular where I’m from too. And to be quite honest, if you can put pineapple on pizza, why on earth can’t you decorate with corn? I usually avoid the ketchup/mayonnaise lattice designed pizzas, but apart from that, I could pretty much order anything from a Korean pizza menu and be happy. The other day however, I was saddened to have a disappointing pizza experience. My boyfriend and I, hungry after a trip to the jjimjilbang, thought we’d treat ourselves and shun cheap and cheerful Pizza School, for some Pizza Hut. Having chosen something pretty average, we were a little taken aback by the price. Oh well, we thought, I’m sure it will be big and delicious. sive western-style pizza, make the most of the weird and wonderful toppings in Korea while you can. And even if the sweet and spicy flavors aren’t quite your thing, you know you’ll never get more beautiful presentation elsewhere. WorknPlay

Top 5 Summer Vacations


The first time I bought a takeaway pizza in Korea, I thought some kind of special event must be going on. Wrapped around the box, was a beautiful red ribbon. How lovely, I thought. Especially being accustomed to the fast food industry in England, where spotty-faced adolescents just grunt, and then virtually throw the box at you. So I truly appreciated such a thoughtful touch, and marched off with my pizza present, all the more thrilled to be indulging in such a greasy feast. Actually, it’s not just the ribbon that impresses me about pizza in Korea. I find the toppings delicious too. Give me a sweet potato–filled crust with prawns, over a bog-standard pepperoni, any day. And I love the corn too. Many foreigners find putting corn on pizza strange, but it’s pretty popular where I’m from too.

Special Feature Magkeolli Making Tour with WorknPlay. Makgeolli, sounds familliar? It means "korean traditional alcohol" which is made of rice. Every country has their own traditional alcohol all over the world. There's "sake" in Japan, "beer" in Germany, "wine" in France. Likewise, there's makgeolli in Korea. Makgeolli is one of the best traditional liquors in Korea. It has low alcohol and much nutrition, so it does no harm to your body. It contains more than ten kinds of amino acid, which is essential for a human body. Its effect on the human body can be seen from two perspectives. First, it has a fresh, sour flavor, which elevates taste and digestion. Second, it energizes you easily and helps you recover from fatigue. Makgeolli is really popular recently and being loved among young people. Makgeolli is continuously on the

rise. Everybody's favorite. Makgeolli. I happened to go to the Mageolli museum because I wanted to know its process of manufacturing and history. You might think that it's going to be far but it only takes about 30 minutes to one hour from Seoul city. The Mageolli museum is located just five minutes distance from Wondang station which is on subway line number six. When I arrived at Wondang station, around 10 people were already waiting for their company and some of them already seemed to be intimate with each other. It was still chilly spring but sunshine was great for going on a picnic. :) After leaving Wondang station, exit number two, you should just go straight ahead to the sidewalk. When you go about 200meters, you will be coming across this sign. This is the Makgeolli Mu-


seum. The official name of this museum is "Bae da ri museum." Rather than showing only about types of makgeolli, it also showed the history of makgeolli, so it seemed like foreigners would be interested. The museum was not that big, but its antique-style decoration and atmosphere made us comfortable and foreigners were busy taking pictures. I didn't expect foreigners to be so passionate about getting to know Korea. After looking around the museum, we had the opportunity to make our own makgeolli. Our experienced guide could speak English well so we all could learn easily. We had to wash our hands without soap. Do you wonder why we should wash hands without soap? It's kind of a traditional Korean theory that hands have a

big impact on the taste of food when it comes to making food with bare hands. One big bowl with rice yeast was given for two people and the process started by mixing it up with water. Everybody really did their best because it was the one they're going to drink after making it. :) Thanks to guides and staffs' help, we could finish "DIY makgeolli class" successfully. We could take a pot of makeolli which we made by ourselves and we were given a cute glass bottle of makeolli as well. Everybody put down their name on the pot and it was quite interesting that almost all foreigners wrote down their name in Korean letters. It showed how much they love and enjoy Korean culture.

A pot of makgeolli was as much as they could drink in a week, if you are not a heavy drinker. We gathered around outside the Makeolli museum. They were also running some kind of restaurant that sells some side dishes with makgeolli. We had seafood Korean pancakes and bean curd kimchi for a side dish. As an ambassador of Korean culture, I wanted to teach them as much as possible. When young Korean people drink, we play some kind of game and it can easily bring people together. After thinking about it, I came up with one game which everybody can enjoy. The name of the game is the "image game." Here are the rules: Participants ask this sort of question:"Who is the most likely to have more than two boy or girl friends at the

Men’s Appearance Top (singer), Kim namkil (actor), Jang keunsuk (actor), Lee byounghun (actor) – They are representative celebrities well fit for eye makeup. Wearing skinny jeans, grooming their eyebrows, having white and smooth skin, emphasizing the newest fashion style... Nowadays, we can see some men having these features. Other names for these men are ‘the groomings’ or ‘the pretty boys’. Namely, it’s a new trend in modern men.Men following this trend want to look polished and intelligent; also they have a sort of an androgynous appeal. The pretty boys have concerns about makeup as well as diet. Not only models and service men, but also normal worker and university student prefer a slim and trendy appearance. Socially appearance is treated as competitiveness, so recently men having regular weight or low weight want to be slim guys. Also, they don’t hesitate to go to a cosmetic store and pick up powder or BBcream(to revise their skin color). They say, “Like wearing clothes neatly, makeup and diet are kinds of self-appearance care. As you know, slim shape is a current trend, not muscular man because it makes men feel. By Qasar


HEALTH PAGE Healthy eating is about more than the food on your plate—it is also about how you think about food. Healthy eating habits can be learned and it is important to slow down and think about food as nourishment rather than just something to gulp down in between meetings or on the way to pick up the kids. Eat with others whenever possible. Eating with other people has numerous social and emotional benefits—particularly for children—and allows you to model healthy eating habits. Eating in front of the TV or computer often leads to mindless overeating. Take time to chew your food and enjoy mealtimes. Chew your food slowly, savoring every bite. We tend to rush though our meals, forgetting to actually taste the flavors and feel the instead of hungry. During a meal, stop eating before you feel full. It actually takes a few minutes for your brain to tell your body that it has had enough food, so eat slowly.

Restaurant Review

The first time I bought a take-away pizza in Korea, I thought some kind of special event must be going on. Wrapped around the box, was a beautiful red ribbon. How lovely, I thought. Especially being accustomed to the fast food industry in England, where spotty-faced adolescents just grunt, and then virtually throw the box at you. So I truly appreciated such a thoughtful touch, and marched off with my pizza present, all the more thrilled to be indulging in such a greasy feast. So, as we learnt the hard way, it’s best not to be tempted by the western brands, they’re just not as good here. You’re much better off heading to Mr. Pizza, where everything is made with “Love for women”. But more than that, they claim: “We put in a secret ingredient that’s rare and hard to find, this is our heart.” So much more than you expect from your average pizza joint back home, right? And although restaurants like Mr. Pizza are still a bit on the steep side, they are incredibly inventive with their offerings. Granted, the Sweety Pizza, topped with sweet potato mousse, fruit cocktail and almonds, may be a bit of a struggle to get down. But you have to give them points for making that ham and pineapple so much more creative. Consider then, potato, spicey gochujang, bulgogi, and the mysterious Secret Garden toppings, and pizza just seems a whole lot more exciting.

Gyeongju

There is nothing like an adventure to get spring started. So my mates and I loaded up the car and headed on down to Gyeong Ju For those of you who haven’t been to Gyeong Ju which is a beautiful city located in Gyeongsangbukdoin the southern area of Korea. So we headed off in fine style with DJ woodle otherwise known as MBLAQ blasting K pop from the stereo. We made a quick stop in Daegu to pick up MBLAQ’s moodle from his Korean classes and made a quick stop to get some kimbap and drinks before getting back on the road. Gyeong Ju as predicted was looking stunning but slightly over crowded as is any place in Korea when there is a festival on. The Traditional Drinks and Rice Cake Festival in Gyeongju(was well attended by Koreans and foreigners alike. I guess there is nothing like booze to bring people together. Entrance to the festival is free and the festival was held at the World Cup Soccer Stadium. If there is one thing I can say about Koreans, it is that they have made really good use out of the Soccer Stadiums as multipurpose areas which are fantastic. We arrived around 3 in the afternoon and the day was beautiful! It was perfect. True spring weather and sky was so blue and clear. Let me tell you romance was in the air with couples everywhere. On the road up to the festivals there were a variety of pictures documenting the history of the traditional drinks and rice cake in the Gyeongju area. When we got to the festival we were given an information pamphlet and map. Unfortunately for English speakers there was no English map and pamphlet. So I would encourage the festival to provide multilingual pamphlets for next year. We just decided to first walk around the main area. MBLAQ and her Moddle purchased a small cup for 1000 won. This cup meant that they would be able to try all the different types of traditional mainly alcoholic drinks on offer and try they did ! We had a rip roaring time wondering around enjoying the varies displays and samples. However one thing I would say is perhaps the selection was rather small considering how many traditional drinks Korea makes. So after one round of the samples we headed off to the rice tent to check out some rice cake. There were disappointingly no samples to be had here. But we did purchase some rather delicious fresh Tteok(rice cake) . So yummy. So with the rice cake tent done we decided to go for another look around. We headed up the road a bit but there wasn’t much to be seen. It was a little disappointing. By this time it was around 5 so we decided to sit down have some Makoli and seafood pancake. Makoli is traditional rice wine. It is a brown or light beige color is usually cheap and very popular around mountain areas. Most of the areas were full but we managed to squeeze ourselves into a little place that was really no more then stools with a table on the street. True Korean style: a portable business. But to be honest I would rather go somewhere like that than the overpriced fake places. So having managed to get ourselves a spot we ordered and MBLAQ and Moodle enjoyed the Makoli as I hoed into the seafood pancake. It was nice just to sit and watch people. People from all walks of life were there talking, laughing, eating and drinking together. Afterwards we headed back over to the sample tents for another round before meeting up with some more mates who had come down to join us.


Festival Focus With a long history, and a viewing culture which originated in ancient Chinese pleasure gardens and was later transferred to Japan and then Korea during the early 20th Century, the Cherry blossom tree is undoubtedly an icon of all countries located in the Asia Pacific region. But with the backdrop of Jeju’s already beautiful natural scenery, the cherry blossom season on Jeju island is arguably the most beautiful time of the year, and perhaps the most beautiful and authentic place to view the Cherry Blossoms around the world. Cherry blossoms come into bloom on Jeju-do in late March, a much earlier period than that of the mainland of Korea ringing in the onset of spring just that extra little bit earlier, as if it to lift the spirits of hard working farmers ready to say goodbye to the cool and barren winter. Above and beyond this fact, Jeju-do is now also believed to be the site of origin of one of the largest and most beautiful breeds of Cherry blossom flowers, the Somei Yoshino, that were said to have once been brought over to Korea by the Japanese. During the 35 year occupation of Korea, the Japanese also planted these trees (which they staunchly argued originated in Japan), in places that were offensive to Koreans such as their palaces, and introduced the tradition of flower watching as the Japanese did in their own state. For older generations of Koreans, Cherry blossoms are thus often a sad reminder of a difficult time in Korea’s history, but the Korean people can feel proud that their trees are now proven to be a distinct breed indigenous to Jeju and are an authentic marker of their own national heritage. In spite of its moniker, the Cherry blossom does not in fact produce the cherry fruit though it is a cousin of the Cherry tree. Instead, each tree blossoms thousands of magnificent flowers that last for a maximum of three weeks, and then fall from the branches like a majestic spring snowfall. Here in Jeju, the end of the blossoms is a upon us, and as I walked through the park next to my house yesterday, I was caught in a strong, gust of wind characteristic of Jeju, which surrounded me in a tunnel of gorgeous white petals. It filled me with really beautiful, peaceful feelings and allowed me to be in “the now” for just one moment. Pictures thus do not do the Jeju Cherry Blossoms justice, so I highly recommend a visit to the island around at the end of March or early April next year. In the meantime, here is just a small and wholly insufficient taste of the spring beauty that Jeju has to offer. By Michelle Lee

But more than that, they claim: “We put in a secret ingredient that’s rare and hard to find, this is our heart.” So much more than you expect from your average pizza joint back home, right?

The first time I bought a take-away pizza in Korea, I thought some kind of special event must be going on. Wrapped around the box, was a beautiful red ribbon. How lovely, I thought. Especially being accustomed to the fast food industry in England, where spotty-faced adolescents just grunt, and then virtually throw the box at you. So I truly appreciated such a thoughtful touch, and marched off with my pizza present, all the more thrilled to be indulging in such a greasy feast. Actually, it’s not just the ribbon that impresses me about pizza in Korea. I find the toppings delicious too. Give me a sweet potato–filled crust with prawns, over a bog-standard pepperoni, any day. And I love the corn too. Many foreigners find putting corn on pizza strange, but it’s pretty popular where I’m from too. And to be quite honest, if you can put pineapple on pizza, why on earth can’t you decorate with corn? I usually avoid the ketchup/mayonnaise lattice designed pizzas, but apart from that, I could pretty much order anything from a Korean pizza menu

And although restaurants like Mr. Pizza are still a bit on the steep side, they are incredibly inventive with their offerings. Granted, the Sweety Pizza, topped with sweet potato mousse, fruit cocktail and almonds, may be a bit of a struggle to get down. But you have to give them points for making that ham and pineapple so much more creative. Consider then, potato, spicey gochujang, bulgogi, and the mysterious Secret Garden toppings, and pizza just seems a whole lot more exciting. So never mind trying to search for that elusive western-style pizza, make the most of the weird and wonderful toppings in.

The other day however, I was saddened to have a disappointing pizza experience. My boyfriend and I, hungry after a trip to the jjimjilbang, thought we’d treat ourselves and shun cheap and cheerful Pizza School, for some Pizza Hut. Having chosen something pretty average, we were a little taken aback by the price. Oh well, we thought, I’m sure it will be big and delicious. Ten minutes later, our meal arrived. I thought they’d made a mistake and brought us some kid’s food instead. But no, this tiny 6 slice pizza was all we were getting, for 20,000 won! After eating the cheesy morsels in about 5 minutes, we headed home, stopping off for a 5,000

Inspirational School Supplies When a little Korean child is getting ready for their first day at their private English school (hagwan for the new kids), it’s always a good idea to impress the teachers. That means adorable, colorful school supplies with fancy English lettering will cement themselves into the frozen hearts of their teachers. I would have preferred candy myself, but I won’t complain, because reading these pencil cases and notebooks has become the joy of my day. I’m offended on one level just because of the horrendous grammar most of these school supplies have. You figure marketing would make sure that the designers hired a copywriter or something, but no point in nitpicking. And maybe my ability to detect cuteness has diminished as I’ve got-

ten older and crankier, but doesn’t that picture look like a woodland animal cult? Note that none of them are smiling and they all have wide eyes and blank stares. There definitely filled with love, but most likely only for their fellow Branch Davidians. Teasing aside, all my anger is subsided, if only for

to the market. Hiring a fluent English speaker would have cut into their precious profits, and I don’t think most parents who buy this notebook know how badly it’s written anyway. I’m pretty sure the reason these poorly written English phrases get into stores so easily and frequently is the same reason that Toyota

the adorable images and positive messages. While SpongeBob SquarePants is loved and adored by millions of children, I highly doubt his lunch boxes are promoting love and happiness. Yes, your son or daughter will be the envy of his friends when he waves around his or her Wizards of Waverly Place notebook, but in Korea, the journals and folders are used to teach their classmates the true meaning of friendship. A wonderful life lesson amongst a horrific English grammar lesson. In the classroom, we have to promote the highest standards and always give our best efforts. That’s our job. But perfection isn’t the job of the businessmen who brought this product
