    As you can see in this clip, strangers have to be careful about contact, but same-sex friends are very open about holding hands or hugs. Just like the BTS is touching each other a lot. So there are times when a lot of foreigners misunderstand that them are gay. sorry for my poor english😂 From. S korea

    I heard about the rule not to touch. I believed it. But then I saw a lot of videos where Koreans easily touch other people. Just during a conversation can touch the hand or something else. I even thought that I heard about another country. But you confirmed it about Korea.
    In my country, there are no touching ban. But no one just touches each other without a reason. Only if say hello. The one who first greets sets the tone, shake hand or wants to hug, perhaps even just verbally and the second person answers the same way. Anyone in the world will feel uncomfortable if they touch him for no reason. *But if there is a reason, accept it.*

  • LordDesAbsterdens

    2:52 It’s better to do nothing at all instead of disgracing yourself like this. If you do not embrace a person, then there is no point in holding a hand in that position.
    It looks like you want to hug her without permission and pretend you're friends. That's rough.
    § Or on the contrary, the girl is not against hugs, but you are afraid of girls.

    I’m part of BTS ARMY, and let me just say this, I see a lot of comments of armies saying that they’re watching this video to go to South Korea and meet Bts. Bts are a very busy and popular group,and they are always traveling for concerts, so if you want to move to South Korea just for Bts, good luck👍🤗because there’s a chance that you may not see them, I’m not being rude, I just hope some of you guys understand where I’m coming from❤️😭💓💜

    Some of these are pretty basic and even go beyond Korean culture. My culture, our elderly should always be treated with respect and I was raised to treat others the way I would like to be treated. The mannerisms are still a struggle for me as we do have a pretty lax country but there are some similarities I see between cultures

    simply put S.Korean culture breeds acceptance to being an alcoholic, while stating they believe in courtesy and being polite..yet don't believe in boundaries, and elders get away with all types of foolishness. It's truly aggy ah and tiresome. I often wonder how do people mentally and spiritually deal with the hypocritical nature of it all.

That caught me off guard 'cause, I'm brazilian, and HERE that gesture, wich we call "FIGA" is meant to wish good luck or good fortune and I have a lot of decorative items around my house with that gesture! I have one sculpture of it hanging at the wall right beside me as I type this comment! So this one surprised me very much!

    To us we might think that koreans are not understanding of foreigners mistakes But if you think about it, most of them don’t know our rules and how they’re different to theirs. They only know their rules and have always been brought up around it. There is a culture where when greeting, they well kiss your check, all men and women. To us that must be really weird. Imagine a bunch of foreign strangers/ men and women just kissing your cheek
    You’d be like ‘ tf

    While in Malaysia and specifically Malay, you need to be the one who ask for shaking hand to elders and kiss their hand or literally just bump it lightly towards your forehead or nose as that the sign of asking for blessing and respect. Or sometimes you can just lower your body a little bit while shaking hand and smile but of course with the same gender or family only.

    No Korean accent. Raised in Hawaii? Three hours talking with foreigners? No telephone exchange or date made? You are an attractive young girl. Of course, all the men want you. Some of your customs may be valid, but they make no sense. You should explain why they are done, such as turning the head to drink? What for? There must be a reason. Can one bow , like the Japanese, rather than shaking hands? Shaking hands is so unsanitary. Many people wipe their nose on their hands. Yuck! You have exposed arms and a plunging neckline. If you do not want boys drooling over you, cover up. Nice fake purse on you shelf. Yves St Laurent? Koreans have strong garlic breathe from Kim chee cabbage.

    I've always liked South Korea because of their culture that is shown in their dramas (and some other factors but let's focus on this), now I feel more sure to reside in this country in the future. 😍 I like the manner hands a lot, cause I don't like being touched especially by strangers. 😂😂😂

    About hands - thats really helpful to know ~
    3 years in Korea. Never seen any korean in Seoul who gave his seat to elders unless someone else asks Directly. I saw only some foreigners do that, including myself, but still most cases elders just rejected and insist me seat back or try to find another place for me asap.
    Smoking in street - everywhere. Absolutely disgusting. In a walkways, or exits from some underground passages, in front of offices in the morning.
    Table manner - not always youngest, in workplace, usually lowest positions/new workers do that. Esp if age difference is not that notable.

    Try that in most of the foreign countries.... Hug someone you just met in a café.... Trust me, its not going to end well.

    You keep mentioning “old people”. What do you mean exactly? People over 30? Over 40? 50? 70? Seems like it’s all about appearance and it’s relative to the speaker. For example for my 12 year old cousin everyone 20 and over is old.
    Incidentally, please note that in English (US) we prefer not to use the words “old people.” It can be seen as rude and disrespectful and interpreted as being prejudiced. Instead we talk of “the elderly” for people over, say, 70 and up, and “mature woman/man,” “older woman/man” for anyone LOOKING over their 30’s-40’s, 50’s or up.

    Anyone going to another country should learn the customs before they go so they do not appear rude or offensive to the native population. After all you are visiting their country. Personally I would be totally embarrassed to seem rude in front of so many attractive women if I was visiting a country like South Korea.

    I'm curious. While it seems common sense not to invade another person's personal space so not touching is a given. There are so many videos made by foreigners who have traveled or live in Korea who say many Koreans come up to them and touch them inappropriately while trying to get them to speak English with them. What's the best way to let Koreans knows that foreigners don't want to be touched either?

Most of the "US behaviour" in Korea would be also rude in Europe. So most of the things you said in your video would also apply on germany.

    Im samoan and these are rules if your boyfriend or girlfriend is Samoan:
    1: Wait for the elders to get food first, don't rush the kids/people that are giving out food (if you are at a family event)
    2. Call who ever older than you auntie or uncle and if your 13 and someone that is older than 25 thats your uncle or auntie
    3. Don't curse, if you do your gonna get a slap from one of the elders, nah im just kidding your not but just don't
    4. DON'T GET INTO A FIGHT WITH A SAMOAN!!! And if you think im kidding, you can dight one and see what happens and if you do, the whole entire family of samoans will come after you
    5. Don't dirty dance infront of the elders guys, that's disrespectful BIG TIME like twerking, sexually dancing jhst don't do it
    6. FINALLY, Just do not do anything that can disrespect us and i swear if you call a samoan or hawaiin person something bad, i hope you will live the next day

    Lots of restaurants in the US allow you to pay before your food comes up. Or they drop the check when the food is dropped off. Just depends on where you go. I work in a place and we drop the checks when the food comes out. And you walk to the register to pay.
