this one is more of a belief but uh in japan they say that ghosts have no legs....
and when girls turn 20 they have a special celebration for becoming a women and wears a kimono and goes to the temple and pray or something like that i not to sure about the details...feel free to correct this if you know the details to the tradition


As i know, in Japan when u turned 20, it means u will become an adult. u will do a celebration called "Coming Age" i think. all guys and girls has to do that. both girls and guys has to wear kimono. and they do it in a temple.

This is just random for panese, Korean and Taiwanese Dramas I've seen

1. Removing of shoes when coming inside the house, I'm always attentive on how fast they can remove their boots when they are come inside the house hehehehe

2. Bowing when apologizing or showing appreciation by the Japanese... ( need to have a sturdy backbone when I visit Japan hehehehe)

3. The women giving the chocolates on Valentines day ---I can't imagine doing it, it's so awkward, I have this general idea that I should always be the recipient of these sweet gestures on Valentines

4. When they wrap the lunch boxes, they dont use a bag, its has to be a clothe tied at the top.... I find it weird hehehe


5. The public baths ... I'm so curious on how it's like, I tried the one here in Manila. Its more of a spa, but very similar to the Public Bath in Korea or Japan. We spent the whole day there with my friends


6. How they carry people .... I have no comment on it, its just unique

Sorry but i can't seem to get tired of adding and ading the things that i've noticed and learned from watching K/J/T Dramas...


in addition:
ive noticed that:




when i was on my way home i kinda rem'bered noticing this in some Kdrama's ive watched:

--Koreans love hitting their partners/buddies either on the nose or on their hands. If someone looses the game he/she's gana be hit big time --aah before hitting, the winner would first blow on his hand/ 2 fingers then *swhip*.
--they love playing "BADUK"-- like a chinese checkers *white and black thingy* only it's not chinese checkers also the korean flower card game: like majohng only it's card--red and white tiny cards with pics of traditional koreans printed on them.<--NOW I KNOW WHAT"S IT CALLED--GO STOP!
--Koreans are obsessed with teeth they always brush em lmao
--Koreans have extended family, oftentimes they live with their grandparents, uncles & aunts
--

--Japanese has really eccentric hairstyles!
--they call obsessed anime/manga fans as OTAKU--they are the nerdy/geek types *but i adore them ionno why!*
--Japanese seem to love to crossdress: hmmm cosplay really rules out!
--Japanese school activities seem to be so FESTIVE--ooh they love MAID CAFE!

from korean dramas:
- giving a piggy back (at first couldn't understand when they could just lift her up, but then used to that)
- drinking soju (totally everyone from youngest to the eldest)
- traditional food (like kimchi or noodles), and they eat with metallic chopsticks
- wedding ceremony (they greet everyone at the entrance and wear white gloves), also they take wedding photoshoot (good idea, i should do that too )
- public baths (they wear same clothes as everyone else in bath, like uniforms)
- respect elders and don't call them by name, only oppa (they even call their boyfriends), nuna, sunbae, unni, hyung and etc.
that's all for now
