Korean History ...

If you are thinking of coming to work in Korea and are wondering what Korean people are like , or deal with Korean people a lot , you need to watch this video .

Koreans aren't the most care free or light hearted people you are ever going to meet. I don't know what the korean word for "chilling out" is concerned , but I imagine it's something like "uncomfortable sensation and loss of self resulting from lack of work commitments or social convention".

Of all the things I don't love about Korea...I don't love the blind nationalism the most . Korea has recently indulged in the process of re-writing their history and let's say somewhat "over estimating "their importance in the grand scheme of things.

This sums up a few things about Korea quite well : the tendency to measure their position in everything in correlation to others countries, the rampant Anti-japanese sentiment and passive aggresive nature are quite well captured here . And I dare say the imitation and accent are pretty accurate .But those are topics all for their own articles...
