Random things I love about Korea...

Here are a few of the things that have tickled my fancy since returning. I may have mentioned them in the past but I think they are so great that they deserve another mention.
Random concerts and performances. Now that we live near Lotte World (Jamsil station is actually our closest subway station) we are seeing these kinds of things a lot more. This was a group of musicians playing some sort of techno classical music. Yesterday we watched an a ceppella group. Free entertainment everywhere you go!

Funny signs.
This one isn't hilarious (and for all I know, maybe this is the slogan for Johnny Walker) but it made me smile.

Crazy after school programs.
I so wish we had Lego class when I was growing up. That would have been so cool!

Amazing prices and free gifts. Now this isn't on all products, but on certain ones. In case you can't tell, this is a buttload of shampoo and conditioner. Guess how much this cost me? GUESS. I dare you. There are 2 massive bottles with pump tops, one fairly huge bottle and then 4 normal sized bottles. Price? 18,000 won (about $20). The stuff taped to the top of the set are the free gifts. The two bottles that are loose on the table were extra free gifts that the saleslady stuffed into our backpack. I didn't see her doing this to everyone so I can only assume it's because we're foreign. I may never have to buy shampoo or conditioner again!
