Yesterday, J sent me a link to an online t-shirt store with a note that read, “Thought you might appreciate the design.”
As you can see, each shirt has printed the names of the players who will be participating in the World Cup for that particular country.
I did appreciate the bold and simple design (thanks, hubby!) and was fully intent on blogging about it today…
Then the post took on a new spin as I came across an article in Korean Beacon this morning.
Apparently, someone has taken it upon themselves to Photoshop a Korean shirt in this style, with a comical twist:
I’m sure someone would find this offensive, but I — as a Korean — don’t. I think it’s a hoot!
I’m only sad that my last name didn’t make the cut. But alas, it is not a very common Korean surname, with only 1.5% of the Korean population bearing the name. (Random trivia: if I meet another Korean with the same last name as me, there is a 1/3 chance that we’re related!)
