문화 차이

Cultural differences

민수 씨는 밥그릇을 식탁 위에 놓고 드시네요.

Minsu, please put the rice bowl on the dining table.

네. 그런데 왜요? 와, 그러고 보니까 일본에서는
밥그릇을 손에들고 먹는것 같네요.

OK, but why? It seems that in Japan one holds the rice bowl in the hands while eating.

네, 맞아요. 일본에서는 주로젓가락을 사용해서밥을
먹기 때문에 밥그릇을 손에 들고먹어요.

Yes that is right. I Japan one uses chopsticks to eat rice and therefore the rice bowl is held in in the hands to eat.

아, 그렇군요. 한국 사람들은 주로 숟가락으로밥을
먹어요. 밥그릇은 식탁 위에 놓고요.

Right. Koreans mainly use spoons to eat rice. So the rice bowl is placed on the table.

일본에서는 숟가락을 잘 사용하지않아요. 국을
먹을 때도 그릇을 손에 들고 국물을 마셔요.

In Japan, the spoon is not much used. When eating soup the bowl is held in the hands to drink the soup.
