After seeing Park Chan Ho rock the beard last night in the Phillies game caused quite a bit of excitement for me. Living with a beard in Korea takes guts. Especially when you have a classroom of elementary students ready to ridicule you for having a beard. “Teacher, beggar!” “Teacher, grandfather!”
It made me very happy to see a famous Korean man pull off the beard on an international stage. To be frank, Park looked like a stud. I hope Park has opened up the door for all those Korean men that want a beard, but don’t have the guts to go for it. Vive la barbe!
