Maybe it only seems strange in translation.

I walk into the shower at the gym, naked as a matter of course. The woman in the shower, naturally also naked, sitting on a plastic stool and rinsing her hair in a bucket, looks up, says, in Korean, “Welcome!” and “Are you married?” (Although I needed the word “wedding” in English to know what she was talking about.) No. “Boyfriend?” No. And that was the extent of our conversation.
