How nice everyone is

Given that it’s monsoon season in Korea, you can expect to get caught in some heavy rains when walking home from work. Last Friday, this was a case for my coworkers and I. I was the only one with an umbrella, so my coworker Lauren stopped in a convenience store to see if they had any umbrellas for sale. Needless to say, since it was a small store, they didn’t have much more then ramin and soju. The owner however, noticing the heavy rains gave Lauren her own umbrella. She asked that Lauren just return in when she’s done with it. I couldn’t believe someone could be that generous to a complete stranger. We were all shocked, but it just proved that Koreans are some of the nicest people on the planet.


  1. I REALLY hope your co-worker returns the umbrella!

    • haha..or don’t and destroy korean hospitality one umbrella at a time.
