My neighborhood isn’t particularly nice, but I felt safe….until yesterday. I discovered that there is a biker gang on my block. (I know, I was shocked too!)
I was walking home from school when I heard a deep rolling down the street behind me. I turned around and, to my surprise, there was a gang of what looked like eight Korean transvestites riding mopeds down my street. After they passed, I saw them park down the street from my apartment. I followed them and snapped a picture when they went inside.
Fortunately, it was just a bunch of fashion-forward young men. That’s the thing about Korea – there is no real limit when it comes to fashion. There are guys with lipstick, bleach-blonde hair, earrings, and tight jeans strolling down the street with their attractive girlfriends. It’s common to see a man helping his girlfriend apply makeup in the subway or on the street. The image of a Korean man is much different from that of an American man.
Until next time.
