This was probably one of her biggest cultural shocks when she visited my hometown. First, NEVER stare someone down like that in Detroit. Staring is really not polite anyways (she wasn’t doing it in a rude way though), but this is especially true in Detroit. It’s basically an invitation for some type of confrontation.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters
