  1. Reblogged this on 스마트 아줌마 Smart Ajumma and commented:
    I found this amazing drawing about ajumma by Amy Slatem on her blog. Yes they’re sometimes rude but I think they didn’t mean it. (:

    And I really like her drawing but most of drawings or images about ajummas are not very ‘friendly’, I know and I understand. 

  2. Hello Amy Slatem, My name is Jung Moon and I’m researching about Ajummas in Korea. I shared your drawing in my blog, is that okay? I really like your drawing about ajummas. Thanks. (:

      1. Oh… the group is called Only in Korea. Your photo has garnered more than a hundred reactions already, people really like it ^^

      2. All of us on OINK really love the photo, but majority of the comments are wondering why it says “Visa” instead of “visor”.
