Differences in cultures(from movies and tv shows) 3.

Share your culture and ask questions about other cultures. The idea is to learn something interesting while practicing English. Topics from this forum will slowly be moved to more specific forums.

Koreans looking in the mirror

Post by James Trotta »

This reminds me of a mirror in the stairwell in building 1 at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, I think it's between the second and third floors. Anyway, first off, a stairwell seems like a strange place to put a mirror. But then you see mirrors in unexpected places in Korea, like the ones right before the stairs in Hwarangdae Station.

Anyhow, for my 5.5 years at HUFS I was surprised daily at all the people who stopped in the middle of the stairwell to check themselves out in the mirror. It seemed ridiculous that anyone would stop for a mirror in the stairwell, but especially ludicrous when guys did it.
