In honor of the 2018 PyeongChang Games, let’s look at how they celebrate Valentine’s Day in Korea.
In Korea, women give chocolate to men on February 14, and men give non-chocolate candy to women on March 14 (White Day). On April 14 (Black Day), those who did not receive anything on February 14 or March 14 go to a Chinese-Korean restaurant to eat black noodles (자장면) and lament their ‘single life’. Koreans also celebrate Pepero Day on November 11, when young couples give each other Pepero cookies. The date ’11/11′ is intended to resemble the long shape of the cookie. The 14th of every month marks a love-related day in Korea, although most of them are obscure.
