What’s in their Bag?

My boyfriend’s brother and sister-in-law were visiting Seoul for the last month. During their stay, they managed to replace the post office for a majority of their family members. With each visit, they generously received something else to add to their suitcases. Good thing they didn’t pack much on their way here.

I was really curious to see what exactly would be packed in the bags, so we set everything out.


For the Man


1. 5 pounds of homemade Miyok

2. button up shirts from the street markets

3. wooden logs for health (good for massaging parts of your body)

4.Wormwood Moxibustion devices

5. Man Bag

6. 고스톱 or Stop-Go game set

7. Anytime Milk Mints

8. Wife Beaters

For the Kids
