Today at school I had 9 students show up for my first class and only ONE student for my last class. I can't imagine showing up for three hours at your English academy on a Saturday, but that's student life in Korea. Oh, might I add that on every other week, most students attend school on Saturdays. So I had kids that came straight from school after leaving school. FUN FUN FUN!
After work, we headed to the Megabox to watch Transformers. This blockbuster pulled in almost $28 million on its opening night, on a Tuesday (the biggest Fourth of July opening ever, beating out the $22 million Spiderman 2 made in 2004). It raked in $12.4 million in South Korea on its opening day alone. Although the storyline was a bit cheesy at points, I thought it was an entertaining movie. The dialogue was pretty funny and the first half of the movie made for some good laughs. The CGI was amazing and overall the special effects looked incredible.
Prior to the movie, we headed to GS25 for some ice cream. When I saw an ice cream that had corn advertised on it, I had to give it a try (thanks to inspiration from ZenKimchi's corn ice cream experience). I thought this was the same ice cream that Joe had tried, but it was different. This definitely ranks up there with the funky ice cream (think of the pig in a tuxedo bar) in Korea. Let's take a look at the pictures!
Here's the packaging with a picture of a corn cob and some animated niblets. Sponsored by GS25:
After taking my first bite, I realized the ice cream did not taste like corn at all. It was just vanilla flavored ice cream with bits of chewy, dehydrated corn mixed in. Hmm...the taste was very unique I must say. Who would've thought, corn + ice cream?
After taking a second bite I ran into some more corn. The little buggers were getting stuck at the back of my teeth. Anyways, here's a picture of a corn niblet so you can see what I'm talking about--yes, I took this out of my mouth and placed it on the bar. That's dedication, baby (it could also be disgusting, but come on, it's picture-worthy):
Have you seen Transformers? What did you think of the movie?
