How English used in Korea

Here companies will put English on something and people buy it because it has English on it.  Like t-shirts, jackets, books….whatever.  This group of photos shows English on, Japan-based  “dollar store” chain called Daiso, every day items.

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!

  1. Hi, Eyagee. Do you see any “How to Draw Manga (manhwa)”-type books in Korea? I tried searching on Amazon and found none. Would you be able to send me some titles and book cover pics; I can order from a bookstore here.

    1. You might want to try http://english.gmarket.com GMarket is like one of the biggest online retailers here for nearly everything from gadgets to food. If you don’t find anything there, let me know and I’ll keep an eye out in the stores. Also, let me know how much they want to ding your for shipping. Typically shipping is stupidly cheap from here but maybe the online guys want to take a bigger slice of foreign orders. If it seems rather unreasonable, I’ll be more than happy to grab it and ship it myself. Although, you may have a tough time finding English books in Korea for that…

      1. Thank-you – that site is perfect. I looked at some titles. The shipping is onerous, and I think I could find similar material on dA. Alas, yet one money sink laid to rest. : ) Regarding the shipping, if I do need something brought from there, I will look you up for sure!
