Previous and New Tradition in Fashionable Korean Society (Half 4)

I usually speak to a bunch of buddies who I grew up with in Korea. As soon as I begin having a dialog with my buddies, I usually really feel how distant from my very own nation my life has taken me. There are new phrases that I actually should analysis in the course of conversations. It’s pure that you may really feel distanced out of your childhood buddies as you grow old, however this phenomenon offers me a way of how briskly Korean society is altering in lots of facets.

Immediately, I wish to speak about Korean cultures that solely exist in Korea.


  1. 빨리 빨리 문화 (Bbali Bbali Syndrome: hurry syndrome): 

Within the 1988 Summer season Olympics, the entire world was shocked by how shortly the South Korean economic system had risen from the devastating conflict within the Fifties. Most Koreans are hard-working folks, however there have been just a few cultural elements that facilitated the speedy progress in a comparatively brief time.  It’s known as 빨리 빨리 문화 (Bbali Bbali Syndrome: Hurry Syndrome). (http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/information/nation/2007/11/117_13800.html)

Koreans worth excessive productiveness and effectivity in each day life. Clients count on the standard service with 신속 (sin-sok: quickness) and 정확 (jeong-hwak: precision) in 배달 문화 (bae-dahl-moon-hwa: a tradition of courier service).

퀵 서비스 (Fast-Service: a supply service system, just like FedEx or UPS system within the States, however it’s cheaper and available with a wide range of companies inside Korea.) would most definitely ship your mail from Seoul to Busan in a day.

Koreans count on handy and systematic service utilizing cell telephones. 배달 음식 (bae-dahl-eum-sik: a supply meals) is pervasive and well-liked in Korean tradition. I’m not exaggerating once I say {that a} supply man would get your meal on time, even if you’re out within the forest.

In a restaurant, you’ll wait to get extra water till your waitress makes eye contact with you otherwise you intentionally name for help. In Korea, you simply press a name bell on a desk. Most Korean eating places have a service name bell put in on the nook of the desk. That is linked to a server’s panel on the entrance desk to alert the waitress for the following service. I guess you’ll immediately fall in love with this bell when you expertise this swift and handy service.

Nonetheless, 빨리 빨리 문화 doesn’t at all times contribute good issues within the society. In 1995, a department retailer in Seoul out of the blue collapsed and many individuals had been killed or injured. It was essentially the most distraught tragedy that many voters nonetheless bear in mind until at the moment. After the incident, 빨리 빨리 문화 was harshly blamed and there was a giant reflection time on how Koreans wanted to make a stability between effectivity and high quality of labor.



2. Korean Leisure: 

Once I was in center college, film stars from Hong Kong had been extremely popular in Korea. Even I used to be a giant fan of Jet Li. After I moved to the States, just a few of my acquaintances typically requested me about Korean celebrities or Korean songs.

I, nevertheless, have not too long ago seen that extra younger individuals are asking me about Korean leisure equivalent to Ok-Pop, motion pictures, and even TV reveals that I had by no means heard of earlier than. I attempt to give them one of the best solutions as a lot as I can, however I typically really feel a little bit embarrassed that I don’t have the depth of information that I might supply them. This encourages me to reconnect to Korean tradition via media. I’m proud that South Korean tradition is now deeply appreciated by many individuals from totally different languages and cultures. 

What do you concentrate on a name bell as a restaurant service in Korea? I miss many issues from residence, however the bell is one in every of them that I want we had right here within the States. 

I’ve been amassing concepts for a very long time to share actual Korean tradition with you. I’ve yet one more publish to put in writing about Korean tradition and I will likely be speaking concerning the housing cost system and others. Please don’t hesitate to share your ideas about Korean tradition and traditions within the Feedback field beneath. I might love to listen to from you.
