I meet up with three other english teachers this past Saturday in Suncheon, the town that is located next to mine. We were suppose to enjoy the sun and do a walking tour, maybe visit a temple. But the weather had other plans. It rained right after we all met up at the Suncheon bus terminal. So we made the best of it. We ate western food at McKenzie's restaurant (delicious) then spent a couple of hours chatting at the Tea Oreum. It was a nice little tea/coffee shop near the restaurant. After that, it was still raining, so we took a cab to the movie theatre. One of the teachers was familiar with one of the movies. She had read the book and really enjoyed it. It was called something like " A hundred year old man who climbed out a window...".
So I asked the cashier did the movie have subtitles? She said very clearly, yes, the movie had subtitles. And she did not lie. The movie did have subtitles. Korean subtitles. After sitting in our seats and realizing this (and picking our jaws off the floor) we again, made the best of it, sat back and watched the movie. It was actually good. Of course, sometimes the Korean audience laughed out loud (even the kids) while we were clueless, but it was all good.
I would love to see it again...um...with english subtitles, lol.
It was a nice, slow-paced day and we all enjoyed ourselves.
