I only know how to go too far

Terrible Souvenir for Korean Guys

That’s 75% of all Korean dramas right there!

If you pay attention to the third tea mug from the right in the front row at the top, it says “不要迷恋姐 姐夫会揍你” which translates roughly to “don’t fall in love with your own sister because your brother-in-law will beat the crap out of you”. Well. First of all, this statement is so obvious to me that it is just the sort of thing that I don’t expect anybody would need a reminder for. Which begs the question of its very existence. Then I remember my recent favorite K-drama Bad Boy in which the main character falls in love with his very own sister who is freaking freaking freaking hot! Perhaps this is communist China’s way of making fun of the democratic South Korean men who are so very cursed with beautiful beautiful beautiful sisters. Perhaps not. But either way, don’t get this tea mug for your Korean friends or they shall be your friends no more.

This blog post concludes the trio of photos I took of this awesome store “火柴天堂” aka “Heaven of Matches” in Qi Bao, Shanghai, China.  Here are the first post and the second post of the trilogy.  Thanks for reading.

  3. Goodness!! That is funny!! 😛 I haven’t seen that drama. Is she is blood related sister or like a step-sister? That’s some craziness….

    • Bad boy is a little bit more complicated than your run-of-the-mill sibling love story. I’d rather not spoil it for you. You can watch it on Hulu. It’s pretty good except in the end where they had to cut the story short because the main male actor had to go into the army and get trained against the North Koreans. Don’t ask! We’re talking about Koreans here…
