I think the odd ones out would be the people that thought twice about going nude in a sauna.  Did you never belong to a club or gym back home that had whirlpools, dry saunas or steam rooms?  A group of us discovered a bathhouse in my first month in Korea and it became a weekly ritual.  Our motto was "Leave your hangover behind."  The women in our group didn't take quite a shine to it.  They were big chested and one was a natural blonde so they got more attention then they appreciated.  But, until this thread I haven't come across guys who thought going nude in a bathhouse was something risque.

I was out one day and there was a guy walking his immaculately groomed maltese dog. Hair looked like it could have been white silk. It was wearing a pink vest as well as a custom pink collar with crystals. This dog shimmered, and it was a bundle of happiness and joy.

Cute, right?

An ahjumma who was also out for a stroll slowed to a stop once she saw this dog. It didn't try to approach her at all, it was very well trained, but it also wagged its tail at her and was clearly hoping she'd give it a pat as it and its owner passed her. The owner even slowed down for her so that she could because he was probably used to people gushing over his dog and thought that she'd stopped for that very purpose. She hadn't. Once they got close enough, she let out a scream, which scared the dog and it tried to bolt. Owner had a tight grip on the leash, though, and he told the dog to sit while also assuring the lady that she had nothing to fear. She paid him no attention, though, and kept trying to dash between him and the his dog and over the leash (mind, she had about 5 feet of path that she could have used to go around them), but then she'd stop and back up again because she'd lose her nerve. The owner tried to walk past her but every time he tried she'd freak out, back up, and get in his way, lol. So he just stood still and waited for her to get past them her way. Which meant watching her try to "leap" over the leash, freak out and stop, go back, wave her arms back and forth like she was getting ready to make a mega jump over a giant canyon (seriously, the leash was sitting relaxed on the ground, all she needed to do was walk over it), and repeat this cycle all over again.

She did this, like, 4 times before finally succeeding. Owner didn't find any of this humorous, he was trying to keep a straight face but I could tell he was super annoyed. I, on the other hand, was laughing my ass off. Ahjumma didn't appreciate it and gave me a dirty look once she was finally on her way.

I had wondered why he didn't just pick up his dog, but I figured he probably didn't feel like he should have to, lol. He was an older guy, probably just as stubborn as she was.

Did this happen near Taepyeong? I heard about a similar incident that happened around there.

Just saying “Porn at the doctor’s office” would have been too much of a head-scratcher. But now I’m wondering if this really is something particular to Korea.

Anyway, glad to see you back. I was kind of worried about you.

I've been to one of those rooms. Oddly, there was almost all Japanese films on there, with maybe one or two western ones.

앙 기모띠!

But I still think it’s stranger that my urologist had a hard drive full of “Bang Brothers” content.

The time I had to provide a sample, my doctor didn’t have anything like that. She was a GP, though. Perhaps that technique is the domain of specialists.

Men sit at one table for lunch and women at the other......rarely do they meet.  The same happens for hwesiks....it looks so silly...

She must not subscribe to the International Journal of Urology. All you had were a few back issues of Vogue magazine stacked on the coffee table then?

I think for school lunches, as with hwesiks (1차 at least), everyone is just doing what they can to get to the other end of the awkwardness and back to their lives as soon as possible.

Not even that. :(

This was before the smart phones too. All I had was my imagination!

Now now, there are the lushes who as soon the booze starts flowing are having a blast. For them (err...us) it's a simple equation of booze=good.

For many life starts up again at 2차.

Might want to save that one for 3차.

No, this was in Daegu at the time, but you know I'm not surprised that this happens in other parts of Korea, lol.

This is pretty common in my culture too. Parties are like this as well. That's why I never thought twice until someone mentioned it.
