>> 까다롭다: FUSSY

Watching Korean variety shows has become one of my fav past times. And I’m convinced Infinity Challenge and Happy Together (and everything Jaesuk is in) is my favorite. GOD YOO! *BOWS*

Today I picked up a new word, watching Happy Together, feat Hyori and her friends. In the late night cafeteria segment, the guests have brought out delicious dishes to share, but it seems to not to be good enough for our picky Myeongsu – Jaesuk team.

Picky.

(See its usage: 01:02:43)

Jaesuk: “이제 조금..좀 까다로워진 네,진짜.. 조금 그래요.”

Also known as Korean Thanksgiving (한가위), similar to the Chinese Mid Autumn Festival. It’s a 3 day affair in Korea, and works like our Chinese New Year where families gather together and eat a lot and play games and eat some more.. but alas, our mid autumn festival is only a 1 day event for Singapore :< Boo to the max.

The snow skin ones are usually the ones with fancier tastes. They are colourful as heck.

Image source unknown, but it’s not mine.
The fancier kind of moon cakes (There’s even green tea, lychee, chocolate, hello kitty shaped, minion shaped, and [probably a PSY shaped one haha])

But in Singapore we get the 맛있는 moon cakes! I love the brown skin ones with the yolks in them, but I heard each moon cake has an extravagant amount of calories. It goes anywhere from 80-560 calories. I try to keep my calories within 1100-1200 range, and that shit alone is like half my entire day’s worth. But I love these so much I rather eat this than chocs.. (No, i don’t count calories religiously, but I’ve gotten more aware about the PAIN OF LOSING JUST 100 calories through exercises.. ‘Excess = pain’ has been seared into my head :< )

 

Oh I derailed. 

 

Anyways, I just wanted to post a short, set phrase for 한가위 that I just learnt! It’s

“더도말고 덜도말고 늘한가위 같아라~”

 

더: more

덜: less

늘: always

같아: same

 

Putting them together: “Don’t talk (wish) for more or less, just always be like Chuseok!”

Can someone explain to me why this is what people say though? 🙂
