我的韩国朋友们 自从2007年9月来到韩国,到现在已经有1年半的时间了。在这期间交了不少的朋友,其中也包括一些韩国人。在这里向大家介绍一下我的韩国朋友们,顺便跟中国的朋友们做一下比较。 首先从我们实验室的成员们开始说吧。怎么说他们也是我来这里之后相处时间最长的一帮人。我们实验室除了我都是男生,跟国内的工科大实验室差不多,但是20来个人当中就我一个人,这个好像是太少了吧。还好人都不错,教授人也不错, 不歧视女生,上次说再收一个女生,但是那个女生竟然没有被学校录取,我就白兴奋了一场。 韩国人的生活很忙碌,这种忙碌也反映到了学校的实验室,我能感觉到我们实验室的大部分学生比国内的学生更认真,更积极,更要求完美。有个师兄老是对我做的事情不满意,我当时就很恨他,但是后来想想那也算是我到现在这一步的一部分动力吧。虽然我对现在不怎么满意,但是觉得已经熬过了艰难的适应期。 实验室有个师兄特别聪明,人缘还特别好,当然脾气也特别好,简直是我的偶像,就是话有点多。他很喜欢教别人,我从他那里学了不少东西,他让我做的事情我很乐意地做,不感到一点的反感,我觉得在人生中就应该遇到这样的前辈,但是很可惜,他快要毕业了,我真希望实验室能有再多几个像他那样的好前辈。 有那么几个师兄,三十岁了还经常打打闹闹,像个小学生似的,有时候觉得他们很不像话,但是有时跟他们说话能感觉到其实他们想法还挺多的。他们当中有一个正准备美国留学,有一个已经去了美国。 我们实验室还有那么几个人在国内是很少能见到的。有个小子,家里是开面包公司的,钱应该也不少,但是特别省钱,别人都去食堂吃饭的时候,他就吃从家里带过来的饭。他是个硕士,我们实验室硕士的工资是一个月60万,有一次他跟我说他每个月都存100万,为以后的生活攒钱。当时我就很惊奇,原来他还做家教,学费也都是自己出。他为了热饭,把家里不用的微波炉都拿到实验室了,有时候还拿来一堆面包,以便宜的价钱卖给我们。他还有比他大四岁的女朋友,反正他的很多事情对我来说都难以理解。 还有一个师兄有点难以理解。称他师兄是因为他比我大,其实他入实验室比我晚,因为在原则上,韩国的男的都要去当兵,这种现象是很自然的。这个师兄很喜欢电脑,课题什么的都不怎么积极,但是只要是关于电脑的事情他就挺身而出,很积极。而且他很喜欢网络购物,我看几乎天天有他的东西到,大部分都是电脑部件,要么就是方便面之类的食物,要么就是漫画书。经常有人去他那里要吃的,当然不都是免费的了,方便面可是要钱的。他对吃的很了解,哪里有什么好吃的,问他都知道。上次去釜山学会的时候就是他带我们去吃猪肉汤饭的,还挺好吃呢。还说下回去济州岛的时候要带大家去吃米肠,别人只知道济州岛的桔子出名,没有听说过关于米肠的事情啊。 这就是我们实验室的一部分人,我在国内的时候,大家经常说韩国的男的很有风度,但是好像跟我想象的不太一样,在照顾女生方面,我看他们很多都不如中国的男生。我们实验室的大部分男生都喜欢吃零食,一部分还喜欢唠叨,这些可是让我有点难以接受的。当然从整体来说,大部分韩国男生是挺亲切的。是不是说实验室的人说的太多了,一句话我觉得他们都还行,我运气比较好,找到了比较好的实验室。 下面来说一下我的韩国女性朋友们。因为实验室就我一个女生,我经常出去见朋友,跟他们一起吃个饭,一起学习什么的。我认识的几个韩国女生都是在某个学英俱乐部认识的,而且他们都是基督教信徒。他们对待人很热情,很亲切,我第一面就喜欢上他们了。他们给我推荐了附近的一些特色美味,我们偶尔会找个时间一起出去吃,觉得跟他们在一起心里特别舒服。在国外生活就需要当地的朋友,要是有什么不明白的事情我都会问他们的,比如去哪里买衣服好啊,皮鞋一般在哪里买啊,什么品牌的化妆品比较实惠阿,头发哪里剪得好啊之类的,他们都会比我清楚很多。 其中有个女孩在中国生活了十多年,她的父母现在仍住在中国青岛,她是来这里念大学的,她的中文说得很好,还说上高中的时候,在写作比赛中拿过奖呢。我们好多东西能说到一块儿,她说她喜欢吃猪蹄,还有麻辣烫,给我说得那个馋呀,我也好久没有吃了,好想念这些中国的食物阿。韩国用的外来语挺多的,他们很多东西都直接用英语,而且有些是他们自己造出来的英语,估计美国人听了也不知道是什么意思。这些东西我都会问她的,因为她最清楚应该用什么汉语单词来解释那些词。 韩国也有一些捉摸不透的,不好接近的那种女生,我刚来韩国的时候,实验室里有个女生,所有的人都不喜欢她,说她很高傲,我跟她相处的时间并不长,但是能感觉到这个人不太好接近。我以前的舍友也是这样的,一开始觉得她挺难相处,总是觉得她在警戒我,有时候对我说的话还挑毛病什么的,但是后来还是好了很多。 我认识的韩国女生也不多,我觉得能用一句话来总结他们,凡是基督教徒都很亲切,好相处,至于不是基督教徒的,就需要再观察了。 这些就是我在韩国认识的,以及走的比较近的一些人,总之,我对我周围的韩国人还是比较满意的,教授也不错,实验室的人也还好,还有几个好的朋友,再加上我还有很多中国的好朋友呢,这里中国的留学生很多,只要你愿意都能找到好朋友。希望我写下的这点东西,能对大家有点帮助。
