Skip to 0 minutes and 21 seconds Helene : In Denmark, we eat with a knife and a pork, whereas, in Korea, we use chopsticks, so I have to practice a little bit first. So, the first time I came to Korea, I remember that me and my friend, the English friend, we went to a restaurant to order food and we order two dishes, which is pretty normal for us. But when the food came out, there were so much food and we were so surprised, cause you know, in Denmark, you usually order your individual dish and that’s enough for one person. But then I looked around the restaurant and I realized that Korean people, they were all sharing their food.

Skip to 0 minutes and 51 seconds And that was really surprising for me, cause, in Denmark, we usually just order our own dish. But, after some time, I learn to enjoy sharing your food with others and not only eating for yourself.
