I should just start a business in South Korea selling plant-based underarm whitening deodorant.   :-*
Any investors????  8)

I'd short the heck out of this!

Koreans claim they don't stink, so no sale.

If the bus doesn't immediately burst into a "ONE OF US, ONE OF US" chant while clambering to sit beside me then I feel cold and empty inside.

I read your name as Smelly Baguette  :laugh: :laugh: and then the chanting part made me laugh :laugh: :laugh:

I apologize. :laugh:

if nobody ever sat next to me i'd be the happiest person

although, i do notice people will immediately move seats if another opens up near them, presumably because they don't want to sit next to me (i can't think of any other reasons why they'd move). shrug

Like many others, I'm thrilled to have the space to myself. A rare commodity here in Seoul!

it's usually on the bus now that no one will sit next to me.  the seat next to me is always the last to get filled.  this bus is always full on the way home.  i've even had people sit down and then look for another seat.  i appreciate the extra space but not going to lie, seems kind of fucked up.  i'm not overflowing into the next seat and i don't smell bad either.  i have wide shoulders but i do my best to keep everything contained to my seat.  maybe i need to shave or something.
 might be throwing them off.  balls

Yesterday when I was on the bus someone sat next to me and I immediately thought of this thread. I was sitting in the back corner and there were only about 4 other people in the bus. The person in question sat directly next to me. Also, I've never had the "people don't sit next to me problem" but I really hope I don't develop a "people always sit too close to me" problem.

i actually hate this the most.  all the empty seats and you chose the one i was sitting in?!  it's like going to the bathroom and there are 20 empty urinals and someone decides to post up right next to you.  just...no

It provides a sense of closeness, the Koreans call it Uri (우리).

It also allows for a larger group to sit together.

If there is a row of 6 seats, with one person at each end, sitting next to one of them allows a group of 3 to sit together.

I just hope nobody sits close to me on a subway...when there are other openings...please don't take a crap next to me when there are 10 other toilets open...if it is all full I understand...same goes for especially urinals and hand washing stations...

Seriously. I can't imagine too many Seoulites complaining about having extra space on the bus/subway.
