Pepero Day, Hyunwoo Sun, and Birthday

November 11th is my birthday. It was yesterday.^^

When I have my birthday party, I got a lot of Pepero as a gift. Pepero(빼빼로) is a stick-shaped korean snack with chocolate. It looks like “1”, so the day which consists of “1” (11/11) is called “Pepero Day”. It was started for selling many Peperoes by Company which makes Pepero, but now it’s like a culture in Korea. Korea has many special days like Valentine Day (2/14), White Day (3/14), Pepero Day (11/11) and etc. On Pepro Day, people give Pepero each other as a present. If a boy wants to propose to a girl, then the boy would give Pepero to the girl as a meaning of interest.

On this Pepero day, there was a lecture about How to make a influential blog by Hyunwoo Sun. Actually I introduced who Hyunwoo Sun is to you on Hangeul Day. He is a blogger who posts about Korea and informs Korea to foreign countries. He is like a Hero to me. He inspires me a lot, so I was very happy when I heard that I could attend to his lecture. I felt like getting the best birthday gift ever. I want to show “what Korea is” to you like Hyunwoo does.

Other blogs which inform what Pepero day is.
