@peggyrosyster_409 Due to the millenia of interaction with the Chinese, It is safe to say that although there was no distinctive way to write Korean until the 15th’ century when Hangul was invented by King Sejong himself, ancient Koreans wrote in Chinese. The earliest existing texts stem from the Three Kingdoms period which began in 57 BC. Of course, there may have been writing before then but no concrete texts are still in existence. The Joseon Dynasty began in 1392 but Koreans were writing at least 1300 years before that. So there is a long written history of Korea.
Now on to the main topic: Things I have learned from K Drama.
- Koreans faint easily due to psychological stress.
- If the person doesn’t have a life-threatening condition, one bag of IV solution usually cures loss of consciousness as soon as the bag is used up. IV solution is great for loss of consciousness, the flu, dehydration, mental or physical exhaustion, or just about any affliction.
- God punishes wrong-doers by afflicting them with a terminal illness or severe dementia which has an immediate onset.
- It is not unusual for people to recover completely intact physically and mentally from years in a comatose state.
- The police department or the NIS can track down anyone in Korea through a cellphone signal instantly.
- The US and China have no restriction on entry of Koreans fleeing because of criminal activity and then staying in the host country for years.
- Have you seen security guards blocking pictures of VIP’s in dramas? They also block pictures of the department store staff who are ready to greet the first customer of the day.
(PS I was the first customer of the day because I wanted to go to the Food Court to buy some fresh baked bread for breakfast)
