“She’s Korean.”

I have a new student in one of my classes. Today New Student asked, “What kind of music is this?”

“It’s Korean” said The One Who Really Likes This Music.

“Korean music?” New Student said. “Why?”

“Cause she’s Korean,” said Cat’s Eyes.

“She doesn’t look Korean,” New Student said, looking at me.

Cat’s Eyes shook his head, somewhat dismissively. “Well, she’s not, but she has a Korean fiancé and lived there for two years and does taekwondo and speaks Korean and she teaches us some Korean, too, like 모모 and 하지마. Well. Yeah,” he nodded, “she’s Korean.”
