Tell me about people who live in the countryside.
What do they look like and how do they dress?
How are they different from people who live in the cities?
Do you know anyone that lives in the countryside personally?

It’s never really crossed my mind, but I guess that Korean
farmers from the countryside look similar to farmers all over
the world. Usually their clothing is more functional than it is
fashionable. First and foremost, they need to be comfortable
because farmers have to work hard in the field. I don’t think
that you’ II find anyone wearing a suit and tie when they’ re
working on a farm. It’s not set in stone, but I think that city
dwellers wear more fashionable, expensive clothes than
people who live in the countryside. It takes a while for trends
from the city to catch on in the countryside, but I don’t think you
can judge who dresses better or worse. In fact my mother-in law
lives hours away from the nearest city but dresses very
elegantly whenever I see her for family gatherings.

     The incident that I’m going to tell you about happened the first
time I met my wife's parents, I wanted to do my best to impress
them and win them over, so I wore my best suit and we set off
extra early from Seoul. One of the roads leading Up to my in-laws'
house was very narrow, and as we were driving Up, a
chicken suddenly flew into the road. I swerved to avoid it and
ended Up in a ditch. There was no major damage to the car, but
I had to push it while my wife stepped on the gas. She thought
the whole situation was hilarious, but showing up late for my
first dinner with her parents was no laughing matter for me. To
top it all off, I slipped and fell in the mud. Luckily her parents
laughed about it and the rest is history.
