Is it a crime to look happy in Korea?
« on: January 15, 2020, 11:46:44 pm »
Just wondering.


If I come to work happy, it seems like the Koreans devote the whole day to trying to wipe the smile off my face.

If I come to work looking down, then they  say I have bad "gibun".


How are you supposed to win?
Catch my drift?

I can relate.  Though, I don't thinking wining is an option. 

If those bitches are purposely trying to phuck with your mojo, create as much space between you and them...and ignore their sorry asses.  Koreans are petty little hobbits..there are experts at the cowards" game of passive aggressiveness.  There is no sense in pandering to them, or, trying to match them. 

Just ignore them...(or, clear wrap the toilet bowl).

Just remember it takes more muscles to frown than to smile :) And good manners don't cost nothing.

That is true...I agree wholeheartedly. 

The only drawback I see, is that nobody is perfect and sometimes, folks loose their shit on folks the OP is describing.  It is easier to keep a nice persona if folks are not PURPOSELY playing phuck-phuck games with you.

I like sunshine, If someone is making it cloudy, get away from them and let it shine.
Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

If life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten. And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.

Butter the toast, eat the toast, shit the toast.
God, life's relentless.
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Joy & misery should not be expressed.

Plod along, be stressed, grumble, look, at most, content. If you have to laugh, make it arrogantly at someone. Be assertive. Cheer quickly. Don't be satisfied.

It's the land of life is suffering (Buddhism) and right-wing Christianity (sin deserves its punishment; my **** don't stink).

Of course,... it's the middle of winter... this is a limited perspective. Locals are waaay different at beaches in summertime.

It's all THEIR fault. Always is.

No chance that Cyanea, he who constantly starts whiny negative threads, is at least somewhat responsible? I mean, he basically is accusing the Koreans of doing to him, what he does to waygook.org

You didn't address the attempts of the K-staff to purposely spoil a smile, which goes a long way in creating good vibes. 

I guess apologists fail to see things like that.  In regards to the OP, I don't know....I'm just commenting on what is presented.

Just a hunch, but maybe someone who constantly posts negative threads about Korea, MIGHT be sending some of those negative vibes out to his coworkers and in fact, they're responding to that?

Speaking from experience, a lot of us, particularly Asian-Americans and Korean-Americans, we can pick up pretty quickly on "the haters" and the, I don't want to say racist, but the kind of people who always view Asians as slightly lesser and not fully individual human beings. It usually doesn't take long. Now that doesn't mean they can't be friends, because there's more to friendship than that. You may think that this doesn't happen much, and it doesn't. But it happens enough that it's not a complete rarity.

If you have that mindset, you probably give off that vibe.

I'm pretty live and let live and you know my political tendencies. Also, unlike most people, I don't think such attitudes are disqualifying from friendship.

But it's there. I'm sure you've gotten the reverse from Koreans. You know, those Koreans who don't really see you as a person, but just as some sort of biological amusement device there to entertain them? You can pick up on it right? Same thing the other way around.
