A new McDonald’s opened recently in Gimhae–not that far from the old one, but this isn’t a post to complain about that. While our group was meeting to head over to a local orphanage (aren’t we the best?), we were accosted by none other than Ronald McDonald himself. Or, at least his Korean counterpart, along with a few employees (or, at least dressed the part) and some anthropomorphic breakfast items like Egg McMuffins and coffee (where’s Grimace and the Hamburglar?!!).
And despite this man’s valiant effort to stay upbeat, a number of noticeable facial expressions and mannerisms led several of us to assume he probably wasn’t “lovin’ it” on this lovely Saturday afternoon in South Korea. Here’s hoping he at least got a couple of Big Macs and Monopoly coupons gratis for his efforts. Ba-da-bum-bum-bum!
