Myunghee's brother's wife's mother died yesterday and so we made a quick trip down to Cheongju to pay our respects. It was the first time I've done the bowing thing (though not my first time expressing my condolences in the form of a cash gift) but the short ceremony went off without a hitch! It was nice to get a meal out of it, too. Got home at 2am, so tired all day.
