On November 11th 2021, 4 YG members and 2 exchange students met up in front of Yonsei University at 6:30pm. We greeted each other briefly and headed towards the restaurant, Jinwonjo Dakhanmari(진원조닭한마리), a place famous for its chicken. Since most of the members were previously acquainted with one another, it was easy to chat about various topics on the way.
We talked much waiting for the food to be ready, mostly sharing conversations about how we’d been doing lately. Other mentioned topics concerned recommendations of famous places to travel to in Korea, various cultural themes, food, personal interests, and so on.
The food consisted mainly of huge chunks of chicken in soup with smaller ingredients such as rice cakes (떡볶이), noodles and potatoes added to it. We all loved it!
After dinner, we moved on to a sweet café named Café Mignon, also located in Sinchon. A few of us eagerly tried out some tarts for dessert. The conversations continued on for a long while until we had to leave due to the café’s closing time, approximately around 9:30pm.
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves very much getting to know each other and for some of us, getting to see each other again. It was a meaningful time to exchange our opinions about diverse cultures and moreover, generally build up friendships.
