Christmas Dinner

VIPS Napkin
Okay so we went to a VIPS restaurant for our company Christmas dinner.

The food was decent if a bit overpriced. But the strange thing about VIPS and other Korean places of business is that sometimes your dinner/shopping will be to the sound of rap music and not muzak. This is awesome because, while chowing down on your 4881234$ steak, you can lodi dodi your head to Slick Rick. It is also awesome because rap deals in subjects that don't usually come up at the dinner table. And they totally don't censor the swear words. For instance, I was in a department store the other day and Lilly Allen's "Smile" came on over the PA. I won't repeat the offending lines here cause this blog is for the children. But I was surprised to hear f-bombs while trying to pick out a reasonably priced cooking pot.

I eagerly await to hear "Straight Outta Compton".

Are there many Korean-language rappers? If so, do they touch on similar themes as North American rappers?

There are many Korean language rappers here in Korea. But they talk way to fast for me to understand what they're saying. I can only assume that they're bragging about their grandmothers' kimchi fermenting skills.
