We call it ‘Jeong’.
It is a combination of several individualized feelings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Korean concept of Jeong is a type of deep-seated love it is the feeling of affection, concern, understanding, loyalty, warmth, and emotional connection to someone or something. ⠀
You can feel jeong for your family, friends, lovers, teachers, coworkers, strangers and even for places and objects such as your hometown or first car. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like many emotions, jeong is more easily felt than explained; Koreans often express it through unspoken actions. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Jeong can be seen in the Korean custom of sharing food, the mother rubbing her child’s stomachache away, or the teacher giving gifts to her students. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Order dishes and enjoy our Taste Together!
