Today is Black Day

Black Day - April 14 is a South Korean informal tradition for single people to get together and eat Jajangmyeon (noodles with black bean sauce; shown above), sometimes a white sauce is mixed for those who did not celebrate White Day.

The idea is that those who did not give or receive gifts on Valentine's Day or White Day (March 14) can get together and eat Jajangmyeon (짜장면), white Korean noodles with black bean sauce (hence the name), to commiserate their singledom.
