"The possibilities for what seemed to already know."
I ate gopchang-gui(grilled beef tripe) last weekend. For the first time in a decade. When I was a child, I ate gopchang bokkeum(stir-fried tripe) and got stomachache. Than I have not eaten it since. When I walked through a restaurant selling gopchang, it smelled unpleasant. When I see people who like gopchang, I think ‘why they like it so much? there are many delicious food than it in the world!' Yes, I didn’t like gopchang.
So, I haven't even thought about eating gopchang. Because I thought it was a taste I didn't like. I like sweet or sour food, or exotic food with spices. I cook those foods and meet my friends at restaurant that sells them. I rarely eat foods that I don't like. It deviates from the tastes of ordinary Koreans, but I just thought I had a slightly different taste. But gopchang-gui that I ate that day didn't smell like unpleasant. Why didn't it smell? I was curious to find out that beef tripe doesn't smell. The gopchang bokkeum I had stomachache after eating was a pork. The beef tripe was soft and chewy and even delicious. Maybe it was because I dipped it in a sour sauce. The idea of 'Gopchang smells and tastes bad' was the prejudice I had. When I ate it, I could know why many people like gopchang.
After eating gopchang gui, I thought about 'experience and prejudice'. People think based on his own experience. In life, there are things you like and things you don’t like. It is natural for an individual to like something and dislike something. Then, how did things that you like or not come from? Some are because of a particular incident or dislike it for no particular reason. Think of something you don't like. And think about why you don't like it. Sometimes it can be cut by my experience.
As trivial experiences and thoughts pile up, they form a person's lifestyle and values. The more candles on the birthday cake, the clearer they become. It helps in choosing and judging something. However, the judgment made by experience does not always have a positive effect. Later, he got more experience and said, "This is what it's going to be it. I've been through something similar to this, so I know," he even makes a guess. You fear failure more than before, even if you haven't tried. If you try it, it might be nothing. It is also an interesting part of life that one's previous thoughts are changed by something or someone. There is a possibility in both what you have not done and what seemed to already know through experience.
