I think my mom... Yeah, there's the tradition, the food is your culture, the dress is your culture. But more than that, I think that the lessons she's learned through Korean culture is the way that she shows up to people. So it's not the act of making kimbab (김밥) when someone is going on a trip and leaving or needs help. The kimbab is not the culture. It’s that she woke up at five am, and made all the ingredients, and sat there and put the chamgileum (참기름), did the sesame oil, and the kkae (깨), the sesame, and put it in foil wrap, and drove to their house and did it. That's like, I think, what the culture is, you know. I think that's what I would carry on.
