Chuseok is coming up very soon, and it's a holiday that's shared in various Asian countries. Sports Seoul asked various non-Korean idol members what their Chuseok plans were, and here's part two featuring all Chinese/Taiwanese idols.

GOT7's Mark (Taiwanese-American)




What are your Chuseok plans this year? I want to eat a lot of tasty food (meat ^^), sleep and rest up. I can't reveal in detail, but we're also planning our practice!

What's a memorable holiday memory you have in Korea? When I'm in Korea, the members always take care of me, so everything goes well always. Before our debut, the foreign members got together in the dorm to eat together.

What's the difference between the holidays here and back home? In America, Thanksgiving is a little later in November. We usually eat turkey then.

What's your wish for Chuseok? I hope GOT7's comeback really is successful. We're going to practice hard! I hope more people in Korea get to know GOT7.


Super Junior-M's Henry (Taiwanese Canadian)




What are your Chuseok plans this year? I've been overseas because I had so many overseas schedules, and on Chuseok, I don't have any. I go to Han River whenever I need healing, so I'm planning to go again. I'm going to relax and rest while lying down on the grass at the Han River.

What's a memorable holiday memory you have in Korea? When I first came to Korea 6-7 years ago, it was a holiday. I didn't know that many people in Korea so I was spending it alone, and Super Junior's Siwon hyung called me suddenly and told me to come out. He called me and a few other foreign friends, bought us meat, and took care of us. It was so memorable and I'll never forget it.

What's the difference between the holidays here and back home? During Chuseok, Koreans eat songpyeon (a type of rice cake), but we eat Turkey in Canada.

What's your wish for Chuseok? I want to wish for more time with my family. Since I don't have schedules this Chuseok, I'm going to have a long video call with my family. Everyone, please enjoy your holidays!


PRISTIN's Kyulkyung (Chinese)



What are your Chuseok plans this year? If we have time this Chuseok, I want to go on a trip with PRISTIN members. I think it'll be great if we can go on a trip to Jeju Island.

What's a memorable holiday memory you have in Korea? Last Chuseok, we went to Lotte World. We had a great time, and people who recognized me asked me for my autograph. I remember giving them my autograph.

What's the difference between the holidays here and back home? I think in China, the holidays are louder than in Korea. In China, we do fireworks during the Lunar New Year. In Korea, you make songpyeon during Chuseok, and in China, you eat moon cakes.

What's your wish for Chuseok? Moon, please let PRISTIN get the rookie award this year. And please let all the PRISTIN members always be healthy!


Cosmic Girls' Cheng Xiao (Chinese)


What are your Chuseok plans this year? I'm planning to go back to China for the first time in a while. I'll see my grandparents and have fun with my family. I'll be able to watch the Chuseok variety shows I recorded with my family, so I'm already looking forward to it.

What's a memorable holiday memory you have in Korea? I spent last year's Lunar New Year with the Cosmic Girls. We ate ddukgook (rice cake soup) together, and it tasted really good. We also saw a movie together in the theater, and I still think that memory is so great. If we have a chance again, I want to spend the holidays with the members and make memories together again.

What's the difference between the holidays here and back home? I think the biggest difference is the food. Koreans eat songpyeon during Chuseok, but Chinese people eat moon cakes. Basic moon cakes have egg yolk, but I heard nowadays, there are various flavors like ice cream. When I go to China, I'm going to try it out with my family.

What's your wish for Chuseok? If I have a small wish, I hope the Cosmic Girls all end 2017 prettily and healthily. It looks like the Cosmic Girls will spend the end of the year together again, and I hope we're as happy as we are now.

CLC's Elkie (Chinese)




What are your Chuseok plans this year? This Chuseok, I'm going to stay with my family and have a great time.

What's a memorable holiday memory you have in Korea? This past Lunar New Year, we had "Hobgoblin" promotions, so Sorn unnie and I couldn't go back home, but our leader Seungyeon unnie invited us to her house. We went back home with her and ate various holiday goods such as galbijjim, Korean pancakes, and ddukgook. I was so happy.

What's the difference between the holidays here and back home? In Korea, Chuseok holidays are pretty long, and all the restaurants close and people go home for the holidays. In Hong Kong, we eat with our family at home, take moon cakes and lanterns to the park, and have fun with friends while looking at the moon. (This is my personal experience haha. Not everyone is like this).

What's your wish for Chuseok? I hope everyone can be healthy and happy, and I especially hope on Chuseok, you can spend it with your loved ones! I'm going to go walk in the park with my family, look at the moon, eat moon cakes, and have lots of conversations.


FIESTAR's Cao Lu (Chinese)



What are your Chuseok plans this year? I don't really have special plans. I worked hard this year, so I'm going to rest at home in Korea.

What's a memorable holiday memory you have in Korea? Usually during the holidays, I stayed in the dorms by myself, or worked busily. Once, Chinese friends such as miss A's Fei and Jia got goether to spend the holidays together.

What's the difference between the holidays here and back home? China has Chuseok, and we gather together with friends and family and spend time together. I usually spend the holidays in Korea by myself, with the members, or with the staff, so I don't really think of it as a holiday.

What's your wish for Chuseok? It's simple, but I hope it comes true.. I just wish my family and myself would be healthy and happy.
