Sogaeting @ The Street Café is happening this Saturday and guests who have booked a place for the by-invite only event will get to meet and mingle with new friends with similar interests. Oh, and they will be taking home a goodie bag from Korea Tourism Organization and Galaxie magazine.
Sogaeting (소개팅), which basically means blind date, is a very common past time among Koreans. I’m sure you’ve seen K-dramas where the characters meet their dates for drinks at hotels, cafes and such, no?
Well, to make it less intimidating for Malaysians (we are quite shy, mah), we’re adapting it to our culture. Through the sheer effort of Orchid – and some help from The Street Café’s owner Andrew Kim – 6 boys and 6 girls will be attending our inaugural Sogaeting @ The Street Café.
- Syud Zack
- Samantha Tew
- Cindy Xin
- Syd Mokhtar
- Nina Kim
- Kim Irsyad &
- 5 Korean guys whom I do not know the names of…yet (don’t worry, allow me to get them for ya ;-))
Drinks for the event will be sponsored by The Street Café and if this inaugural event turns out to be a hit, we’ll have more of them, OK? Isn’t it an interesting way to bridge the gap between Malaysians and South Koreans who are in Malaysia?
Wish us luck!
