My dad turned 69 yesterday, but since he was in Korea he turned 70. (Koreans count you as one year old when you are born; forthwith everybody turns a year older each new year – hence the huge-ness of celebrating the new year in Korean culture.)
And next year he’ll be here in the States to turn 70 a second time.
I don’t know if we’ll be able to top this year’s celebrations though –
Look, he got to be “king of namdo!” (I’m not sure exactly what that means, but that’s how my mom captioned this photograph.)
Happy Birthday Dad!
