Brits are famous for queuing, but who’d have thought that Koreans are just as good! If there’s a new found fad going on you’ll be sure to find a queue outside, be it restaurants, cafés, or shops. Systems of reserving a place by writing your name on a piece of paper and waiting for it to be called out have become commonplace for restaurants, and queues winding 40+ people down the street aren’t hard to find either. Etiquette on the subway involves queuing behind one another to get onto the train, if you’re too far back you might not get in, but don’t try and push to the front, that’d mean someone before you won’t get on and they won’t be happy. Waiting for others to leave the train first by giving them a walkway is also expected of everyone (but some people don’t like waiting…)
