June birthdays! If your birthday is this month, as a community, we would like to wish you “Happy Birthday” The gemstones for June, pearl and alexandrite, represent loyalty and friendship. So here is our kdrama suggestion based on themes of loyalty and friendship. Drama: Defendant (2017) An innocent prosecutor ends up in jail on death row with no memory of how he got there. As he puts together the puzzle, he finds help from unexpected places. Have you seen it yet? What would be your drama recommendation based on these themes? Share below in this thread for other chingus. Song: what is a great kpop song that celebrates friendship and loyalty? do you want to share? @LyraYoo also recommends her bias song on the theme of friendship: Health trivia: You ever have a song stuck in your head? Well, there's a word for it – it is called 'earworm'. No there isn't an actual worm but that is how scientists refer to it. Studies show that earworm are songs that are faster and more upbeat in tempo and generally have a rhythm that people could move to. Did you ever have a kpop song that got stuck in your head? Cultural trivia: If you have watched enough kdramas, you know that every birthday requires a bowl of seaweed soup but why? Here's an explanation from @stroppyse : New mothers are given seaweed soup to eat after they've given birth because seaweed soup is so nutritious. Because of that, seaweed is served on birthdays to celebrate the birth of the person. Before the tradition of birthday cake became popular in Korea, seaweed soup was the commemorative dish for birthdays, and even now, a birthday without seaweed soup is seen as being a shame because the birthday person doesn't have anyone who cares enough to make/buy seaweed soup for them. However, there is one other bit of lore concerning seaweed soup. It is not served to people who are about to take a test. In Korean parlance, "sticking" a test means to pass and "falling/slipping" is considered to be failing. That's why "yeot", a toffee, is given to a test taker to wish them luck in "sticking" a test, while seaweed soup which is full of soft, slippery seaweed is considered a harbinger of failing a test. Curious about anything that you watch in dramas and wonder why -- ask us and we will see if it can be answered in the next month's birthday wishes.
