Whether happy, mildly content, or downright depressed
Do sport “couple wear” (matching outfits) proudly.
Do write your loved one a poem in hangul so they’ll have a sweet keepsake to remember you by (or burn when you screw things up).
Do treat yourselves to a walk through Samcheong-dong’s romantic alleyways.
Don’t kick, heckle, or push to the ground any single people you may see in public.
Do spread the love. That is, take one of Korea’s many shelter dogs for a stroll. To find your nearest shelter, visit animalrescuekorea.org.
Do share a bottle of cheap E-Mart wine and some street snacks at a prime people-watching location like Myeongdong. Suggested menu? Roasted chestnuts, tteokbokki, and baked sweet potatoes. Suggested headgear? Complementary furry animal hats.
Do learn all the moves to “Nobody” by The Wonder Girls and rock it with a special dedication to your partner during a private noraebang session.
For the fellow sexy, highly desirable, and surprisingly single friends
Do enjoy a weekend marathon of Korean & English films at Busan’s 10-story theatre, Daeyeong Cinema Town (daeyoungcinema.com)
Don’t belittle yourself by throwing eggs, kimbap, etc. at blatantly oppressive anti-single signage
