I thought I should share an IM conversation I had with my friend, Emily, a few days ago, in which she lists all the reasons she can come up with why I shouldn’t go to Korea — most of them because of the food! Emily has a pretty hilarious sense of humor, as you will see below…
Korea is a weird and scary place and you will HATE the food, I swear. I used to work in Koreatown here in NY and the food sucked a dick
It is full of scary small sea creatures not kidding
It was REALLY gross. And they crack raw eggs into everything
And all of the meat is something you can’t identify and it has fat all over it
And they LOVE to eat entrails and intestines
I am not kidding
And MSG is horrible for you
MSG is in everything
Whereas the US has chicken wings and burritos and burgers and OH… THERE IS NO CHEESE IN KOREA. That is not a lie
Asian food has no cheese and they don’t sell it in markets there
I am not kidding. I know a Korean girl here and I know people who have lived in Asia. They all say the same thing. Have you ever seen cheese in Chinese/Japanese/Korean food before?
And their candy is made out of beans. Tastes like shit
Red bean cake and black bean cakes and weird jelly like things
I would rather shoot myself than live somewhere like that
Are you hearing me?!?!?!?!?!
Oh, and women are treated like shit
You will definitely get beat
So… Korea sucks basically end of conversation. We don’t need to discuss this any more.
My response? GOOD! Then I will get super skinny!!
