A day with Hyun
Hyun is an atheist, he doesn't believe in God because for him; "to see is to believe." He asked me to bring him to a bookstore because he needed a note. At first I didn't understand what he meant by "note." When I asked him if it's a notebook, he didn't answer. He just looked for it and when he found it, a notebook indeed. In Korea, a laptop is called "notebook."
Our last stop was in a Korean restaurant. I was really happy at that time because it was my first time to eat in a Korean restaurant. We ordered Samgyopsal which I really liked. He even taught me how to use metal chopsticks but as a beginner I used the wooden one. I've learned a lot from Hyun and he treated me really well. When we're about to part ways, he told me that the reason why he brought me to a Korean restaurant was because my sister told him my fascination for Korean people and foods.
It was a memorable and I can say one of my happiest moments.
