Before travelling to another country, we must first get to know some of the local cultures before visiting! It is totally necessary to avoid disrespect to the locals and their culture. Just as always… let me introduce to you some things that you might not know about Korean culture! 

Language Barriers

Korea’s native and official language is Korean. Even though the younger ones here study English, it is only considered as a second language. Korean is used in everyday conversations and almost part of everyday lifestyle. If you do come across grannies and gramps who do not use English, it is totally normal!

Okay… don’t freak out! We use Papago as a translation app! It is definitely more accurate as compared to Google translate (no hate here!). It can be used through the app, the Naver Dictionary and through the web

Fast Internet

Do you need that lightning speed internet? No worries! You came just to the right place! Korea has the fastest internet of average 121Mbps when recorded in 2020. The internet in Korea reported more than 3 times faster than the average world record of 35.96Mbps. 

Highly Efficient And Cheap Transport

There are numerous types of public transport in Korea: railway, KTX high speed train, subways, buses, ferry ports, and taxis. The transports are highly accessible and very efficient. The bus approximate arrival timings you get on the apps are usually reliable and arrive mostly on time! 

Fun fact: You can eat on most of the public transports! Do make sure you look for signs and avoid eating if there is a ‘no food and drinks’ sign! 

No Tipping

In America and Europe, you got to tip the waiter in the restaurant. Well… you don’t have to when you are in Korea! Many Asian countries do not tip in restaurants (if you want to tip, there might be a tip box at the cashier). So no, you are not obligated to give tips unless you want to reward the server! 

It Is Naver, Not Google!

Why Choose Naver Ads for Digital Marketing in Korea | Digital 38Image source 

In most countries, we use Google, Yahoo or other search engines! Korea made their own search engine too! You can use Google in Korea but most Koreans would use Naver instead! Naver has many functions, including Naverpay, Navermaps, Webtoons and so much more! It can be accessed using an app or website. 

What are some things you are surprised of and didn’t know about Korean culture? Let us know in the comments below!

I still don’t know the right words to express my gratitude to this great man Dr. Aza. After been diagnosed of HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2months ago, i was given so many health prescription and advice with no improvement, I totally lost hope, until i found testimonies of Great Dr. Aza online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did and he opened up to me and told me what was involved and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, I was cured from herpes by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that herpes can be cured from the bottom of my heart. I’m truly grateful, i pray you have a long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support, You can Email him via email  drazaherbalcenter@gmail.com   or for easy and fast communication you can also call or add him on whats-app with this mobile number  +1(315)7951518  or visit his website: www.drazaherbalcenter.com   , one thing i love most about DR Aza is honestly, and he is very polite with his patience, everything he told me was what he did, and his herbal medicine are very affordable.

My husband divorced me and went after his ex and left me heart broken for 2 years. I have been playing the lottery for some years before I got married and I have never won any big amount. I continued to play the lottery but I couldn’t win more than $500 dollars until I was introduced to Dr Amber that is a strong Haiti spell caster. I had a chat with him via +18084815132 telling him what a mess my life has become. He encouraged and promised to get my man back for me and to help me win the lottery. There were specific instructions that was passed to me by him which I adhered to as he prepared the spell for me that brought back my husband within 36 hours and he gave me some sure numbers to play the lottery game. I used the numbers to play the lottery and I was declared the winner of Ten Million Dollars and all this happened within a week after I knew Dr Amber. It doesn’t matter what you are going through in life Dr Amber is here to help. You can visit his website: amberlottotemple.com or E-mail: { amberlottotemple@yahoo.com }.

I never thought I would be herpes negative again after been diagnosed for 4 years, I have tried everything possible in life from one medical doctor to another, one hospital to another, series of tests, different kinds of medication, I had already lost hope until I meet Great Dr. Riaria online testimonies, a specialist in herbal medication from Africa, I contacted him through his email and number I got from one of the many testifiers, and he prepared herpes herbal medication for me which I took for weeks and now I am completely cured. I have gone to different hospitals for check ups to be totally sure, and all my results are negative. I want to use this medium to express my gratitude to him for saving my life and curing me from herpes virus, for taking away all my pains and sorrows, I’m indeed grateful and I am so happy I’m now herpes negative. I will continue to tell the good news of your great works to everyone, if you have herpes virus or other disease contact him now via: drriaria@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +1 (917) 768-6584.

Its a great pleasure for me to write this testimony about how i got my Genital Herpes cured a month ago. i have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr Aba .but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try DR. Aba then i contacted him through his email, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My experience with him was great, he healed me just as he promised. he sent me his medication and ask me to go for a medical check up after two weeks of usage. i agreed with him i took this medication and went for a check up, to my greatest surprise my result was negative, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 3weeks to be very sure i was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through the same way. reach him through his email address: dr.abaherbalhome@gmail.com OR call, add him on Whatsapp +2348107155060.

I’m here to testify about the great work Dr Uchegbu did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease for the past 5 years and had constant pain and headache, especially pains in my knees. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago i came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Uchegbu on how he cured her from Herpes Simplex Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advised anybody to contact him for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Uchegbu assured me that i will be cured,after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr Uchegbu via email druchegbuherbalcure@gmail.com Thanks once again Dr Uchegbu.

Hi guys, I don’t have much to say right now rather than to say thank you to Dr Amber for rescuing me and my family from poverty. I love playing the lottery but winning big is always the issue for me. I will never forget the day I came in contact with Dr Amber whose lottery spell made me a winner of $360,000,000 million dollars cash prize on the jackpot lottery game I played just by giving me sure winning numbers within 3 days to play the lottery game after he prepared the lottery spell for me. My financial status has changed for good and I’ve started to live my dream life after 14 years of playing the lottery. Thank you Dr Amber for I’m very grateful for all you’ve done for me and my family. You can call or message Dr Amber via WhatsApp with +1 (318) 306-5044 or email: amberlottotemple@yahoo.com or visit: amberlottotemple.com for more information.
