Did you know that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in countries around the world, including Korea?

There, women are the traditional gift bearers on February 14th. But a month later, on March 14th, men return the generosity. The holiday, known as White Day, is so named since the traditional gift is “white chocolate”. In a nod to Korean singles, April 14th is referred to tongue-in-cheek as Black Day, when singles get together with friends and eat black-colored Jajang noodles.
