I was born in Korea but grew up in America. I never learned how to properly use chopsticks (I also hold pencils differently). In Korean culture, holding chopsticks improperly can be considered rude or weird. I don’t know why my parents never taught me, but I’m going to learn now! I bought a pair of adult training chopsticks on Amazon. I ate ramen with it a few days ago. Gotta build up those unused finger muscles.
