And about the shoes, my friends also ask me when we watch kdrama together. Is it that easy to break your high heel? :scratch: Well... a friend of mine did manage to break three high heels in the same week. But then she is a total klutz. A great friend, charming and clever and all, but still a klutz.

I do think that the late Nozawa Hisashi's ashes (in Japan almost everyone is cremated) would be flying at wherever it was scattered if he heard the comment that he was a "Korean playwright". Can you please read what I actually write and not what you want to extrapolate from it? Unless Noz...
