It has such a beautiful contrast all over its demography. While the cities are developed, modern & fast-paced, the countryside is lush green & hilly. However, there are certain weird & funny facts about South Korea that you must know.
Funny Facts about South Korea
South Korea is one of the most fashion-forward countries. Men, women, boys & girls, all are impeccably dressed. Girls wear high fashion apparel like bodycon dresses, minis, shorts but cleavage show is yet not in practice. You will see the girls wearing skirts & shorts all of lengths & sizes but they are always covered up on top.
2. No mirrors in the trial rooms
Liked a dress, try it on. Go ahead…But what the heck? How do you check it out? Because there are no mirrors in the trial rooms. You will have to step out every time you want to check out your new dress, in full public view. If you are not sure about the dress just look around. Check the expressions of people looking at you, you might be able to decide OR drop the idea of shopping all together :D
3. You are already 1 yr old at birth
South Korea has a strange system of calculating the age of a person. A child is considered a year old at birth. So if you are 18 years old you will be considered 19 in Korean age. Feeling old already ;)
4. High Heels obsession
Korean Women are obsessed with High heels. No matter if they have to walk on a plain or uphill, stand for hours or walk miles, they would never do away with their heels. And, mind you, I am not talking about the kitten heels. Korean women wear stilettos all the time with great ease & panache. How do they do it? Something I am still clueless about?!!
5. Couple dress alike
You will agree with me when I say Korean looks cute. They look even cuter when they dress alike. They don’t do it on special days but on a day to day basis. Walk on the streets of any Korean city, you will find many couples dressed alike holding hands, giggling, lost in their own world. A complete “Awww” moment!
Weird Facts about South Korea
6. Don’t Flush it
If I could rate the weirds facts, I would have put THIS on top of the list. South Korea is one clean & well-kept country. But as soon as you enter the washrooms, you will find a heap of used toilet paper. It absolutely gross & repulsive, to say the least. South Koreans don’t flush it as its old drainage system can’t handle such a large amount of toilet paper. Hope they will do something about it…SOON!
7. Dirty Dishes get picked
Hungry? Order a home delivery. Within a few minutes, food would be delivered to your doorstep. Eat your food & keep the dirty dishes outside your apartment. Believe it or not, the delivery boy comes back to collect the dirty dishes. Where else on this earth do you get this service? South Korea you are AWESOME!!! :D
