It’s that time of the year again. February 14th, a day of love. We thought about writing on how Koreans celebrate Valentine but we quickly learnt there is nothing unique about how Koreans celebrate love and Valentine. Then we turned to kids, the cutest and most innocent creatures on earth. We wanted to get their take on how they define love: platonic love, romantic love, family love and all kinds of love. This was inspired by an article and videos on YouTube where children were asked to define love. We went to 20 kids and asked them the simple and sometimes difficult question to answer, what is love?
“My dream was to become the Secretary General of UN but I changed my mind because of Ban Ki Moon[former UN Secretary General]. My mum says he’s so two faced. Now, my dream is to become a refugee school teacher because there are many refugees who can’t study. I want to help them study and develop more so in the future they can also help other refugees. This is because I love them.”
