“Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there lived a handsome Prince. One fine day, the Prince met the most beautiful maiden he had ever laid eyes on at the annual Spring Fair. It was love at first sight. The Fair Maiden was reluctant to reciprocate, uncertain of the Prince’s true intentions, as he is known to sow his seeds all over this fertile land. The Prince, at a loss, did not know what to do to convince the Fair Maiden of his true love.
Unaware to the Prince, the land’s most evil witch was standing right beside the Prince. The Evil Witch whispered to the Prince “buy her overpriced chocolates and candies wrapped up in adorable but unnecessary lacy wrappings and little bow ribbons and she will fall head over heels for you”. The Prince was convinced and did exactly that. The Fair Maiden accepted the lavish gifts bestowed upon her by the Prince, only never to be seen ever again. The Prince was heart broken and ordered the Evil Witch to be executed. Before her execution, the Evil Witch cast an evil spell over all men that on that fateful spring day every year, they shall buy overpriced chocolates and candies wrapped up in adorable but unnecessary lacy wrappings and little bow ribbons for their loved ones.
This evil spell was cast throughout the land for eternity and so every March 14, men all over this land will fall under this spell. Historians later learnt that the Evil Witch’s real name was The Greedy Corporation. Men all over this land never lived happily ever after.”
If you’re still wondering, tomorrow is White Day. “White WHAT????” I hear you ask. OK. Here’s the deal. We all know Valentine’s Day, right? Well in Korea, V Day is reserved for women to lavish gifts on their men. Profiteering businesses here milk the men one month later, on White Day which falls on March 14 every year. So on this day, men are supposed to do the giving and women the receiving. *sigh* Only in Korea. (oh and Japan)
See the soul-less men of this fair land on the eve of the cursed day.
Aren't they just so cuuuute and adoooorable. *giggle*giggle* Yeah right. You ain't seen the price tag yet.
