    Hoa Sư - Flower Monk

    Người đẹp như hoa tiếng Việt dùng để diễn tả phụ nữ. Hoa đẹp trong tiếng Đại Hàn là ... nam thần.

    Kinh Bát Nhã dạy rằng sắc tức thị không. Hình tướng vô sắc, sắc là hình tướng. Không có điều gì vĩnh hằng. Nhưng nếu trong thời gian "hoa" còn đẹp, mà biết lợi dụng sắc hương, hoa cũng kiếm được kha khá, biết đâu lại càng có thêm nhiều người tu tập.

    Các chị em độc thân chuẩn bị đi "Hàn" xem nhé.

    ‘Flower monk,’ social media’s latest sensation

    A young Buddhist monk with a strong social media presence has created a sensation by selling out tickets to a temple tour program.

    According to the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, a free nighttime tour of Hwaeomsa, which accepts 22 participants on a first-come, first-served basis, was fully booked in about four hours after booking opened.

    The program includes a tea time session with Venerable Beomjeong, who belongs to the temple located on Jirisan Mountain in South Jeolla Province.

    Venerable Beomjeong is known online by his nickname "kkot seunim (flower monk).”

    The young monk has cultivated a following of more than 23,000 followers on Instagram --particularly among individuals in their 20s and 30s -- where he shares his daily monastic life.

    His Instagram bio explains the origin of his nickname, which reads, "The practitioner is a flower and should be a flower, someone who emits the deepest scent to others. Thus, I aspire to be a flower."

    The Korean word for flower, kkot, when used to describe a man, particularly a young man, carries the meaning of “pretty” or “having delicate facial features.”

    The emergence of an Instagram influencer monk coincides with the religion’s efforts to reach out to younger generations via social media and various other avenues. Hwaeomsa has been offering a range of programs to attract young people, including a flower photo contest, yoga competitions and a film music festival.

    Hwaeomsa plans to accept an additional 18 participants in the sold-out nighttime tour program, with registration opening on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the official website of the Jogye Order.

    Korea’s ‘Most Handsome Monk’ Is So Popular, Tickets To His Temple Tour Are All Sold Out
    Venerable Beomjeong, aka the “Flower Monk”, is quite the social media influencer in Korea.

    You may have already seen Japan’s ‘most beautiful dentist’ and China’s ‘most handsome man’, but have you heard of Korea’s ‘most handsome monk’?

    Venerable Beomjeong, who also goes by the nickname “Flower Monk”, is a young monk from Hwaeomsa, a Buddhist temple located in South Korea’s South Jeolla Province.

    He is known for his K-pop idol good looks, and boasts over 26K followers on Instagram. A large number of the monk’s following are fans in their 20s and 30s.

    If you’re wondering what is a “Flower Monk”, Venerable Beomjeong states on his IG that a “flower-like practitioner” is someone who is able to “emit the deepest scents” towards others.

    Basically, he aims to be a flower.

    In Korean culture, it is also a compliment to describe a young man as “flower-like”, as it means they look pretty or boast delicate features, you know, like so many K-pop idols.

    According to reports, Venerable Beomjeong is now so popular, tickets to a night tour of Hwaeomsa were all snatched up within four hours of its release.

    Of course, a large draw of the tour is a tea session with the monk himself.

    Tickets are free, and only the first 22 applicants are guaranteed a spot. However, due to popular demand, the temple has announced that they will increase their tour capacity by an additional 18 spots.

    He is very popular amongst his young followers
