Korea Culture/Tradition

A Korean tradition on New Year Day is that you will get to wear a piece of clothing called Hanbok. Hanbok is a colorful clothing that elderly,men,women,and even kids wear them on New Year Day or special occasion. Its always been one of my favorite tradition in Korea.

Problems that might occur

~A problem that might occur while I'm in Korea is that I can end up day dreaming about being in Korea and got lost for REAL!!! I can kinda understand korean a little bit but I can't speak korean. So if I want people to help me, I don't think its going to be helpful because I won't be able to ask for help. Unless someone speak English.
