Useless signs in Korea

I am still trying to comprehend the typical Korean mindset.  I keep seeing things that any normal westerner would pay attention to yet these things either get ignored or somehow get placed in areas that are totally useless.

The door will not open
The door will not open

Despite this rather OBVIOUS sign that is RIGHT BESIDE where you would put your hand, people have ignored it.  It gets even more mind-boggling when they go to put their hand on a handle and don’t find one, nor any other mechanism for opening a door.   They immediately mention this to their friend behind them and look totally confused.  Just….wow.

Now, how about a sign that is absolutely useless?  Video proof.

So I ask you fellow travelers, why would anyone put a warning sign AFTER the thing it’s warning you about?!

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
