This is part II of my series about challenges (although a very entertaining one) and it has to do with the concept of personal space here in Korea. Episode 009 is tightly connected to a blogpost that I released a couple of days ago. You can check it out here: http://tastyoldcabbage.com/personalspaceinkorea/
I also drew this comic about my experience with a Korean guy’s NON-awareness of his surroundings and show the way a proper German reacts to it
Posing happily in the rain at a popular Korean sight. A Korean guy approaches with a giant (!) umbrella…
“MAY THE KOREAN TOILET GHOST HAUNT YOU FOREVER!! Grrrrrr”
Sometimes it seems to us “foreigners” as if Koreans are not aware of what happens around them, which might sometimes be very much the truth. However, it just feels like they don’t bother with curtesy in the street too much given that they life in a small country of roughly 50 million people..
happy dodging umbrellas in the rain everyone!
