Thank you, Cherry Hsia!

We recently had the beautiful, kind and friendly Cherry Hsia join us at our Lexis Busan campus. Cherry, a Taiwanese actress, better known to the public as 夏如芝 or Hsia Ju Chih, undertook our Intensive Korean 25 course for 10 weeks.

잡채를 만들어요! (Let’s make Japchae)

9월 14일 부산 렉시스에서는 잡채를 만들었어요!

어떻게 만드는지 한 번 볼까요~?


요리를 시작하기 전에 먼저 당면을 물에 불려줘요

Before you start cooking, soak the noodles in water.

재료들을 자르고 팬에 기름을 두른뒤 볶아줘요

Cut the ingredients, oil the pan, and stir-fry.


이렇게 찹찹찹 볶아요

Stir-fry like this.

그다음, 팬에 기름을 두르고 떡을 볶아줘요.

Next, grease the pan and fry the rice cake.


떡과 재료들을 넣고 섞어줘요~

Add rice cake and ingredients and mix.



떡과 아까 볶아놓은 재료를 넣고 섞어줘요 불린 당면도 기름을 두르고 함께 볶아요

Add rice cake and stir-fried ingredients and mix. Grease and stir-fry with oil.


간을 조금씩 보면서 간장과 소금도 넣어줘요

Slightly look at the liver and add soy sauce and salt.


마지막으로 참기름과 깨도 넣어줘요. 냄새가 너무 좋아요!

Lastly, add sesame oil and sesame. I love the smell!

Busan Storytelling Festival (부산스토리텔링축제)

적은 인원이었지만 그래서 더 즐거웠던

“부산 스토리텔링 축제”

즐거웠던 현장 함께 보실까요~!


UN기념공원 바로 옆에 위치한 부산박물관에서 열렸어요~!

아침에 비가 왔지만 다행히 뚝! 그쳐서

시원하게 축제를 즐겼답니다 ^^


올해로 여섯 번째를 맞이한 부산스토리텔링축제!

이번 주제는 “부산 담은 노래, 노래 담은 부산”였어요.


다양한 부스를 무료로 체험할 수 있었어요.

먼저 목부터 축여주세요.


지난달에 만들었던 제기도 보이네요~!

한국 학생들이 열심히 딱지 치기를 하고 있었어요.

추억여행하는 어르신분들도 많았답니다.


솔방울로 할 수 있는 장난감을 만들어 보아요~!


솔방울을 종이컵 안에 넣는 놀이인데

생각보다 쉽지 않더라고요.

힘 조절과 순발력이 필요한 장난감이에요.


협동이 필요한 이 놀이는 구멍에 나무판을 빠트리지 않고

꼭대기까지 올리는 게임이에요.

저와 유팅씨는 금방 빠졌지만 이 학생 두 명은 성공!

함께 구경하시던 할머님들도 응원해주셨어요.


추억의 달고나(쪽자)도 만들어봤어요~!

어렸을 때 오빠가 집에서 만들어 준 기억이 있는데

옛날 사람이 된 것 같은 기분이었어요.


축제를 즐기는 동안 광장에서 흘러나오는 노래도 감상할 수 있었는데

“돌아와요 부산항에” “부산 갈매기”  등

부산 이야기가 담긴 노래들을 들을 수 있었답니다.

(설명하면서 저만 신났던 건 비밀)


각자의 취향대로 예쁜 모양도 콕 찍었어요~!




대만에도 이렇게 먹는다고 하더라고요.

그래서 신기해하진 않았어요.


바람개비도 만들어 볼까요?


동심으로 돌아간 시간이었어요~^^



마지막으로 포토존에서 찰칵!

즐거웠던 부산스토리텔링 축제 현장이었습니다~
