When Soojung’s boyfriend disappeared during a seemingly typical dinner date, she could never have guessed what she was in for. What happened next would make even a grown man cry.
It was White Day – a South Korean holiday similar to Valentine’s Day, celebrated on March 14. On this occasion, men give their better halves candy and presents, but what Soojung’s boyfriend had in store for her was unusual.
In Korea, the traditional Valentine’s Day roles are reversed, with women expressing their affection for their men through gifts of chocolate. White Day – which happens exactly one month later – gives the men a chance to give back.
