''Wearing masks will continue to be mandatory indoors at least through the first and second phases. Letting go of masks may be possible in the last phase, the headquarters hinted. ''

Interesting.

I'm curious when they'll drop the re-entry permit requirement for traveling abroad. Seems like it would probably be one of the last things to go since it only affects us waygs. Not that it's incredibly onerous to get, would just rather not have to deal with it again.

There will be some changes as soon as next month. Although no real details.

Yeah I hope the re-entry permit will no longer be needed. And I could do without the 2 PCR tests when returning.
I already expected some positive changes when I booked flight tickets for the Holiday period last month. Fingers crossed...

Last I read, foreigners have to pay money and register to go abroad and also foreigners have to get a negative test while abroad… but Koreans and F4 ethnic Koreans don’t. That’s really infuriating because covid tests are freaking expensive: $100 to $300 according to this. I’d rather not keep having to waste time and money getting them.

I know Koreans who visited Korea and had to be tested and had to pay for the test.

The only difference is the re-entry permit. Otherwise the same rules apply to everyone when entering the country.

I'm disappointed I wasn't singled out by name for my lack of helpful contributions, but whatever.  As for him saying Waygook was full of young people who didn't have any experience with work or being abroad, I would say in the discussion forums that kind of person would be in the minority.  Hell, a "Corn on pizza?" thread would be a welcome change from what is going on on half the board right now.  It's being killed alright, but it's not by Korea Boos and naive new arrivals complaining about Koreans and Korea for all their difficulties. Quite the opposite.

I've had worse things on my pizza in Korea. I recall one pizza place I ate at had corn flake cereal and salad in its pizza. They thought it fashionable.

I think the worst pizza I ever had was one my co-workers ordered one time. It had lemon stuffed into the crust, and had something like: Tomato paste, cheese, beetroot, and a bunch of other 'earthy' vegetables. It literally tasted like dirt until you got to the crust, and then you just get rush of lemony sourness.
It's the only pizza I've ever eaten that I couldn't even down a single slice.

Oof, it went over my head.

It's okay, I like CO2, he's a fairly swell human. :D
I think this is the 2nd or 3rd time he's said something as a joke, that went over my head, that made me think he was being serious. D:
He seemed to take my comment well, so hopefully if he sees the hugs, he'll know there is no hard feelings. If not, sorry CO2!
