Korea Same-Same

Korea Same-Same is what I'm going to call Korean wackyness that is shared by both North and South Korea. I brought it up during my ramble on North Korea but now that I have a category name for it, I am seeing it everywhere. Consider this post from A Geek in Korea:

She said that if she traveled outside Korea, she would spend some money. That money would not be going to Korean people, so she was in fact hurting her country. She would never travel outside Korea because she LOVES Korean people, and would never want to spend money that didn’t go to other Koreans. (Never mind she attends a school that pays my salary, and I’m not Korean.)
