Working as a Designer in Korea(

    Seems to be a very single/narrow-minded point of view.

    "A lot of what you’ve heard about it is true. Food is great, spicy and jammed with MSG. People are obsessed with beauty. Samsung does make cars. Some do still eat dog stew.

    But here is the one I want you to pay attention to:"

    Lots of back-handed compliments/comments towards a culture that are irrelevant to writing this POV of working in Korea and setting up a proper discussion that is informative.

      Thank you for this. The "design in Korea" was just a guise to complain about how shitty he thinks Korea is. It was so distasteful.

      Hey Noah,

      Thanks for your comment.

      That's the thing with expression, isn't it? The ones who have the courage to write are exposed to both love and hate. I am sorry that you an Angel found my post distasteful. I tend to introduce my post with a bit of satire and a relaxed tone. As I am about to elaborate on points (some which could be considered stereotypes or misconceptions by some) opening with some light random facts is just my way to welcome to the reader. This post is indeed based on MY experience, which I believe I am utterly allowed to write. Unfortunately, most would agree that you can't talk positively or negatively about Korean work culture, without first talking culture. I love the country, but many things need to change.
