    This time, I will talk about birthdays. Everyone, in Korea on your birthday, you have to eat this. What is it? Did you think it was cake? No, it’s not cake, it’s seaweed soup. Seaweed soup. In Korea on your birthday, you have to eat seaweed soup and rice for breakfast. When did people start eating seaweed soup and why? I was curious too so I looked it up.

    And that’s the end of the easy part. I think I’m going to have to look at the Koreans subs (while trying not to read the English ones for the next part so I’ll do that separately.

    With looking at Korean subs:
    They say it was a long, long time ago during the Goryeo era. One day someone saw a whale give birth and then eat seaweed. After eating the seaweed, the whale’s birth wounds were all healed. From that time, people started eating seaweed after giving birth. A woman who gave birth, in other words, a mother, would give birth and then eat seaweed soup directly after. I also gave birth and then ate seaweed soup immediately. Actually they say seaweed has the effect of cleansing your blood and and healing wounds. When you give birth, you bleed a lot and lose a lot of nutrients.

    Had to take a break because my brain got tired of translating but I’m back 🎉

    Since it has a lot of nutrients and cleanses your blood, people started boiling seaweed into soup. Then why did people start eating seaweed soup on their birthdays? The reason is it means we are always thankful to our mothers for giving birth to us so we started eating seaweed soup. Everyone, do you have a memorable birthday (accidentally saw subs). I remember a birthday when I was in elementary school. When I opened my eyes in the morning, there was no seaweed soup. And there were no birthday presents either. My mom forgot my birthday. So I remember crying. Of course on other birthdays, I ate seaweed soup, had a party and ate cake.

    I understood the intro, but once she got into explaining the history I was totally lost. That beginner-intermediate plateau.

    In the old days, in the distant past, they say it was around the Goryeo era, someone saw a whale give birth and then eat seaweed. However, he saw that after eating seaweed, the childbirth wounds were totally healed. After that, people started eating seaweed soup after giving birth. A woman who gives birth, in other words, a mother, eats seaweed soup directly after giving birth. I also ate seaweed soup right after I gave birth.
