And Jolly Old King was He

My dad turned 69 yesterday, but since he was in Korea he turned 70. (Koreans count you as one year old when you are born; forthwith everybody turns a year older each new year – hence the huge-ness of celebrating the new year in Korean culture.)
And next year he’ll be here in the States to turn 70 a second time.
I don’t know if we’ll be able to top this year’s celebrations though –
Look, he got to be “king of namdo!” (I’m not sure exactly what that means, but that’s how my mom captioned this photograph.)
Happy Birthday Dad!
