Black Day 블랙데이

Umbrella House (1107 E. Cass St.)

Korean Black Day is a holiday to celebrate singleness. Its predecessors on the Korean calendar are Valentine’s Day (Feb.14) and White Day (March 14). On Valentine’s Day in Korea, gentlemen receive love gifts, and on White Day ladies receive love gifts. On black day those who didn’t receive a gift on

the previous days go out with friends and eat jajangmyeon (자장면), a black bean Korean- Chinese noodle dish from Incheon. The hope is that singles may identify other singles and possibly meet some- one special. Some singles also wear black clothes to identify themselves. Albion College will celebrate this holiday for singles with a campus wide open invitation to eat jajangmyeon together and enjoy some Korean Music .
