It all started when I when I was walking down the corridors of my college and suddenly decided to check out the notice board. I don’t know why. I never look at the notice board but that day I just randomly looked at it. I think my heart was about to explode out of my chest when I my eyes landed on a poster. My first reaction was to take a picture of it and then after that I grinned all the way while I was walking towards my class. I found myself wishing that 20th Feb would come soon.
I had missed the 2015 Korean Festival held in November because it was smack between my exams. But there was no way in hell I was going to miss this one! I told my friends about who are also K-pop fans and they were excited as well but when I asked them this friday if they were coming, they all backed out. I couldn’t fathom WHY anybody would want to not go!! But, god bless my ever available childhood friends who agreed to go with me in an instant. And thankfully one of my childhood friends is also a crazy k-pop fan like me.
Honestly I was surprised when I found out it was being organised by the Delhi University Korean Students Union. Like i had NO idea that there were Korean students here. But as I entered the college today, I heard someone answer there phone and go “Yeoboseyo” I cant even explain my reaction at hearing that. Like gosh I think i died. My friends were telling me to calm the fuck down. I thought I was in mini-korea with korean music blaring through the speakers, Korean people around and Korean food. I was literally in la-la land!
I had never had Korean food before so I was pretty excited to try it for the first time. I saw that they were selling Kimbap and that was the first thing I tried. Sadly, after the first bite I realized that Korean food was definitely NOT for me. I also ate kimchi, chicken pop, rice cakes (which i liked) and this Korean ice cream (I don’t remember what its called). I was really looking forward to the food but man, its just not for me.
I also got my name written in Korean! Aaaand best of all, I tried on a Hanbok!! That was soo exciting! And surprisingly, I didnt look that bad in it 😛
I had a really amazing time. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to attend the movie screening and the k-pop contest. But nonetheless, I was in my happy place. Hoping for more amazing days like this to come.
