10 Unique Korean Customs & Practices and Mad TV's 'Average Asian' Skits

I'm still a little irked at The Korea Times. However, this is an interesting article.

Their 50th anniversary is coming up, so they have a series of special articles.

This one is titled 10 Unique Korean Customs & Practices. It points out some things that I've grown so used to that I wouldn't even consider writing about them.

Asians are stereotyped too but, at least, their stereotypes are more positive overall. However, the frustration I can totally relate to.
