If you’re planning on hanging out at a few bars while you’re here in Korea, you might want to know a few cultural tidbits that’ll make you feel less awkward here. Here’s a video on what going to the bars in Korea is like!
- Korean style bars don’t have standing room. Normally there are only chairs and tables.
- It’s not common for people to go to bars by themselves.
- Koreans almost always go to bars with their friends.
- When Koreans drink, they almost always order food to eat. This is called 안주 (anju).
