party culture ..

Share your culture and ask questions about other cultures. The idea is to learn something interesting while practicing English. Topics from this forum will slowly be moved to more specific forums.

party culture ..

Postby 201020612 Jinseon Hong » Thu Mar 24, 2011 2:18 pm

I have been to Manila, the Philippines. I had homestay there.

First day, I experienced a birthday party for homestay sister's the aunt.

So I met all relatives in the party.

That's very interesting to me!

The Party had music, singing, talking, dancing, eating. and It was held inside and outside house.

Korean party is just focus on eating or talking or singing in Karaoke.

the party of the Philippines was very natural. It had very good mood and was a lively party.

but Korean party makes people some tired. ;; (just I think.)

I feel some heavy. That means just eating or just singing... etc.

Anyway, the party culture is so fresh to me. ^^

Interesting observations. You didn't mention drinking. Which of the two cultures is more into drinking in your opinion? Which culture do you prefer partying in?

I think that Korean party is a little bored, too.
In the past, I watched the American drama and there was party scene.
In drama, party was different from Korean party.
As you said, there was music and dancing! It looked funny.
I want to go to the American party. :P

I lived in Texas when I was 16.
I went to regular highschool and there were many parties.
I couldn't go prome but I went to homecoming and it was really fun
I was really excited because party culture in America was totally different from Korea
especially when I was middle school in Kroea I had never imagined a party
which was like homecoming in America.

Also I went to my friend's sweet 16 as a special guest.
So, I rode Limo because she lented it for special guests.
I slept over in a special guest house and the party was really great.
I wanted to have my birthday party like that.
I heard that 20's birthday party is much bigger than sweet16 in America
and I hoped that Korea also have that kind of birthday cultures.

Party culture in America is the one of main reasons of why I want to go to America again.
I hope Korea also have many party cultures like America!

Do Korean women have a sweet 16 equivalent? I know when a Korean turns 20 it is a big deal - what kind of party do Koreans usually have for their 20th?
