I’ve been a vegetarian all my life, and don’t even consider meat an optional part of my diet. Maybe this is a helpful method. Pretend meat is plastic food or something that just isn’t possible to eat. Or, alternately, and somewhat oppositely, think about exactly where that meat came from and the pain involved in bringing it to your plate. Not an original idea, perhaps, but it may help.
Pleidies's Life List
I lived & worked in southern south korea for 4 years. I had great times and not so great times, but ultimately am really really glad I did it. Do yourself a favour and try to reside outside of the city (especially avoid Seoul) if you want to experience true Korean culture.
