These 10 Things Are Very Common In South Korea But Strange For Rest Of The World


6. South Korean people can sleep just anywhere

South Koreans have a surprising talent of sleeping or taking a power nap at any time anywhere. They are mostly workaholics and even students get usually only 4-5 hours of sleep so you must not be surprised if you spot a South Korean sleeping at a park bench, on the subway or even at a construction site.


7. Convenient stores serve as getting together places as well

For a hangout with friends or get together, South Koreans don’t need to visit a restaurant or bar as convenient stores can be used for this purpose. One can easily find them on each street corner and the even happier thing is that they sell alcohol at cheap rates. You can even avail yourself of table and chairs. What else does one need?


8. Couples are seen in similar dresses

South Korean couples wear the same dresses so that others get to know that they are dating. In local shops, one can easily find many pairs of shoes and dresses that are designed for young as well as old couples.


9. Uniform for kindergarten

In South Korea, there’s a uniform of certain colour even for kindergarten. This is necessary to make sure that children are not lost and can easily be spotted in the crowd during walks.


10. Pregnant women get support from the government

The government here gives a special credit card to pregnant women with $500 that they can use for medical aid. Pregnant women get special places for parking as well as different seats painted in pink colour on the subway so that others get to know about the expectant mother; it’s very helpful for the women who are in early stage of pregnancy.
