A Korean Mom will always make Mee-Yuk-Gook/Seaweed soup on your birthday. Without fail, it always appears faster than the enchanted food at Hogwarts. The minute you wake up, hop or stumble out of bed...there it is...a nice hot steamy bowl of seaweed soup. She may not give you a cake(you might get some dduk/rice cake though you lucky bastard), a gift(maybe a crisp 20, or a benjamin if she's a baller), throw you a party (where other people besides your relatives are invited), or even let you go outside after a certain hour, but she will wake up extra early and make you some seaweed soup. Do not ever cross a Korean Mom and tell her that you do not like Seaweed soup. Even if it makes you break out into hives or throw up in your mouth, it will be to no avail. The Korean Mom will simply scream,"Is good for you!" and proceed to give you stank eye(see #5), but 'The Eye' will be slightly toned down because it is indeed your birthday and she does not want to kill you the same day she pushed you out (with no epidural and while biting down on a stick or rag...according to her.). She will also tell you very seriously that you must consume every single drop or else you will not grow a year older. At my age I plan to never slurp another drop of Mee-Yuk-Gook again, that way I can stay this age forever. Unfortunately, when I moved to my current apartment, my mom stocked my pantry with enough dried Mee-Yuk to last me until I turn 100 or until Bush finds Osama...both which will be never.
