Bus Etiquette 2

In addition to my previous post regarding bus etiquette in Korea, I would like to add a few things.

One key issue to note is that, and this should be obvious, when you are in any other country, please remember that things may seem different to what you are used to. This DOES NOT MEAN they are worse than wherever it is you come from.

Korean people will rarely express any hostility openly to foreigners. What may seem rude to you may not be so in a different culture. Bear this in mind before you decide to react.

A case in point is the shocking tirade uttered by a U.S. citizen on a Korean bus, which was caught on camera:

And this, the admirable video response to the incident by my friend Sonny Side along with Pinnacle the Hustler:

  1. I really couldn’t believe that bus incident when I heard about it either. Never saw the second video before. Thanks.
