Is video game culture and tournaments really as big in SK as westerners think it is?

cresentcube685 karma2019-06-16 14:56:27 UTC
YES! We're really competitive on games, for some reason. I personally think that Koreans are just. Good at games on average- my friends told me that playing on western servers are much easier.

How do you feel about Japanese people at your age?

My allowance comes through that. Pretty dandy!
riderkicker74 karma2019-06-16 15:03:38 UTC
Could you explain this chip-reader allowance thing? Government gives you allowance for being in school so you can buy needed stuff? Or is that like an ease-of-use thing for South Korean students so they don't have to carry wallets because their money is on their card as provided by parents?
cresentcube118 karma2019-06-16 15:29:24 UTC
My uncle sends me 50 bucks every two weeks via banking system
riderkicker47 karma2019-06-16 15:37:46 UTC
Oh okay! Is the money on the chip-enabled card strictly for school purchases, or is it more of a general purchase allowance for non-school stuff, like restaurants and the like?

How scary is North Korea? Any tales that westerners wouldn't know?
cresentcube585 karma2019-06-16 14:58:20 UTC
We have a BIG speaker near the border that blasts K-POP and current news of the South. It's used to tell the truth of the world to the NK people living near borders- apparently it works surprisingly well!
And to be honest, we're not scared. We're just numb at this point,I guess. Most people don't even bat an eye at their threats.
Xelophobe190 karma2019-06-16 14:53:25 UTC
I know that Korea in general has not historically been too openly accepting of LGBT folks. How have you seen views evolve on the subject throughout your life?
cresentcube687 karma2019-06-16 15:07:37 UTC
LGBT rocks and homophobes can die.

What’s your favorite part of South Korea?
What’s your favorite thing to do during your free time?
cresentcube257 karma2019-06-16 14:55:00 UTC
My favorite food is Sushi! Love it! Although in our country it's called Chobap. (초밥)
The favorite part- gotta be the traditional palaces. It's a thing a true beauty.
I usually play Nintendo or just chill watching cat videos and memes!

Hey! I'm actually a Korean who hasn't lived in Korea for longer than 2 months. So while I have a few questions of my own feel free to ask any questions to me too!
Your English is really good! Is English compulsory at school?
Do you go to 학원? What do you want to do after highschool?
cresentcube143 karma2019-06-16 15:00:38 UTC
It's mandatory to learn English, but all I know are self taught. Not many people are fluent as me 2nd Korean is drastically different from the Latin system.
I go to one 학원, but most people go more than one. It's stressful as hell, I can tell you.

cresentcube251 karma2019-06-16 15:02:10 UTC
Loud sounds, people who are mean for no reason, and schedules.

WildPichu22 karma2019-06-16 15:55:15 UTC
Is Soju expensive to purchase? I often hear it's cheaper than water in SK. Also greetings from Canada!
cresentcube36 karma2019-06-16 15:55:48 UTC
Hello!!and its like 2 bucks at best. Go wild.
dogmeat9216391 karma2019-06-16 14:54:32 UTC
I’ve watched a few Korean dramas over the past years, and it seems like the younger people get slapped on the head by the elders a lot. Is that a true depiction of how it is in Korea?
cresentcube121 karma2019-06-16 15:33:08 UTC
Not really, Korean dramas are all about exaggeration!
missbrightside085 karma2019-06-16 16:08:25 UTC
what about the kdrama arm grab? the guy and the girl will
be talking then the girl starts to walk away and the guy grabs her arm really forcefully, that’s only in dramas right?
cresentcube9 karma2019-06-16 16:09:38 UTC
Of course. I will kick that guy if anyone tried that on me tbh
morphballganon4 karma2019-06-16 15:59:13 UTC
A lot of native English speakers make this mistake, so no worries, but non-possessive plural nouns don't get apostrophes. Dramas*

What inspired you to learn English?
cresentcube185 karma2019-06-16 15:06:37 UTC
Actually, I leaned nothing from school! I was a big fan of time travel when I was a kid, so while looking up Back to the future series and Doctor who, I just self taught English, for the sole reason to understand the 10th doctor.
Teddevil5 karma2019-06-16 15:44:47 UTC
That is extremely interesting. How did you self teach yourself English? Did you have to refer back and fourth to Korean to English to understand? Did you use a dictionary? Did you have any base fundamental understanding of English at all?
I want to do this with Spanish or Japanese.. I’d imagine Japanese would be the easiest accessibility due to the amount of manga and anime Japan has.
cresentcube12 karma2019-06-16 15:50:11 UTC

My wife and I are planning on a holiday to South Korea some day. Any advice what places to visit and things to do? Our interests are k-pop, makeup, fashion and esports.
Edit: and what to eat besides Korean BBQ?
cresentcube27 karma2019-06-16 15:03:51 UTC
Sorry, not fan of K-POP to give you a lot of info- but visit 명동, for makeup and fashion! It's a city teeming with tourists, make up shops, clothing stores.
And to be honest, just avoid food that looks spicy, and everything's really good in general!
Andre2813 karma2019-06-16 15:21:43 UTC
How are black people viewed in South Korea? Whether they’re American, British, or any nationality from Africa?
cresentcube24 karma2019-06-16 15:23:20 UTC
We're really cool with everyone! There are old racists, of course, but you can ignore them. Honestly, No one gives a damn about their racist ramblings.

What kind of accent is your English in? Many Koreans seem to lean toward American English as the standard rather than British English (RP).
Do you follow any sports teams?
cresentcube23 karma2019-06-16 15:12:12 UTC
To quote my friend; "You speak like a CNN announcer."
And no, not a fan of sports,sorry. I have very sensitive ears and the loud sports games stresses me out.
rishi8517 karma2019-06-16 15:00:15 UTC
What do you think of Samsung? They're the face of S Korea in many ways. I'd love to know what the locals feel about the conglomeration.
Why do you think S Korea made such advancements in such a short time, based on your observation(not textbook explanation)
cresentcube7 karma2019-06-16 15:35:43 UTC
And I think because generally Koreans tend to get competitive. They try their best to the point of overworking- fast advancements, but a lot of unseen sacrifices for that.
