What I learnt from KPOP (Part 2)

From Orange Caramel’s ‘까탈레나(Catallena)’ MV I learnt that is is acceptable to eat sushi using no utensils.

Further, a brief research on the `internets’ tells me that sushi is traditionally a finger food so it completely acceptable or even preferred to eat it that way.

  • Nigiri-sushi (hand-shaped sushi — may fall apart if using chopsticks) — fingers.
  • Cone sushi or hand rolls — fingers.
  • Rolled sushi — fingers or chopsticks.
  • Chirashi-zushi (scattered sushi) is eaten with chopsticks (maybe fork).

The song 까탈레나(Catallena), samples a Punjabi wedding folk song — Jutti Meri Jandiye, containing the lyrics “Jutti Meri Oye Hoi Hoi, Paula Mera Oye Hoi Hoi”, you can find lyrics and translation at kkromanized.
