Valentine's Day is celebrated on February 14 in Korea like the U.S. However, unlike here in America, in Korea many girls and young women give candy to their boyfriends. This means that throughout Korea, stores are crowded with female shoppers buying chocolates and other gifts for their sweethearts for Valentine's Day.
There is another special day like Valentine's Day in Korea. They call that day White Day. White Day is on March 14. It is similar to Valentine's Day, but with a twist... Many boys and young men give chocolates to their girl friends. Some confess their love to their girlfriends on that day; so I'm told many young women look forward to it.
