if u wanna give it as a gift then most popular n expensive ones are : dried persimmons, gul-bi(it's sun dried fish but comes in a dozen or so), myun lang jjut( it's salted fish eggs, comes in an neat wooden box), most of items that i mentioned above usually comes in a gift basket/wrap.

or if it's for nite out then: kal bi(bbq ribs), bul go gi(marinated striped stakes), and raw fishes(korean sashimi), pretty much anything other than vegetable dishes in korean foods r a bit expensive.

one hundred year old ginseng (called insam in korean).

during japan's colonization of korea, they took korean insam and marketed it around the world as "ginseng" the japanese pronunciation of it. in fact, japanese ginseng is of the lowest quality and therefore the cheapest. korean ginseng is of the highest quality and is the most expensive. The "best" ginseng comes from the most northern part of north korea and on the other side of the yalu river in southeastern manchuria.

if you leave it in the ground for a hundred years, this insam is priceless.

i've heard that charcoal filter cigarettes might just be a gimmick and may in fact be actually more dangerous as you can inhale fibers and bits of charcoal into your lungs.

and galoises blondes were the best cigarettes (but no longer available in the u.s.)

i used to smoke dunhills too. they're expensive but imo maybe a little overpriced. if i paid that much for cigs i would instead opt for Davidoff's. those were about the same price but much better. but dunhills are available most places. which one's though? the red or blue "double" packs, or the regular ones in the white boxes? the double pack ones are pretty nice. if you want REALLY special cigarettes get Shermans. they have a lot of different types. and they burn REAL slow and made with high quality tobacco. they come in a cardboard box like they're cigars or something. they practically are. they're like cigarillos. but ultimately you should quit smoking, cigs are full of up to 600 different chemicals like ammonia and other toxic chemicals. that's why (for me) marlboro's are nearly impossible to quit cuz they're EXTRA addictive. that's why sherman's were good, cuz i didn't get that sense from them. but they are a much "heavier" cigarette. also i heard smoking leads to impotence!

NO! (jjashiki!) i only smoked for a short time back when i was in college to finish my thesis. so no, i don't have that problem

and dunhill makes the best widely available light cigarettes, in my opinion.

Another question is that when i watch Korean dramas why is that i see the guys slapping or wanting to slap them or hit them ; normally that doesn't happen in other dramas unless the girl really deserves it. Also are the men superior over in Korea?Is the man the boss of the house and the woman does the house work?

you shouldn't ever be seeing a man actually slapping a girl unless it's a gangster/ prostitute scenario. "threatening" to slap a girl while making that "whaacch!" noise like you're trying to cough up some phlegm is usually a playful geasture, that in the dramas women more often do to men, but it's vice versa.

outwardly the man is the boss and the women does housework, but in the newer generation this is less and less the case and is considered taboo to expect it, much as in the West. See, We Got Married, a reality tv show and you'll see that aside from Hwangbo who is older and from an older generation is the only one who willingly volunteers for housework, but for example, Seo Inyoung never even touches dishes.

in reality, the woman is "in charge" of the houshold finances (the husband traditionally surrenders his paycheck to his wife, who in turn allots him a spending cash allowance.) if the family's houses finances go wrong (due to mismanagement) the wife is held to account (is blamed and is ultimately shamed) in society's eyes. it's her responsibility that the family stay solvent and doesn't spend itself into debt or ruin.

so in a way the old saying holds, "The man is the head of the family, but the wife is the neck that turns the head."
