Koreans love english. At least, that’s what one would assume since everyone tries to show their skills with foreigners like myself with a kind “Hello,” “Thank you,” and “Have a nice day.” It’s funny at how it is often easier to english words with an “-uh” or “-shie” at the end to get through a short conversation or request. 

  • Nice-uh
  • Trash-ie
  • Cash-ie
  • Food-uh

It’s also pretty funny to find failed attempts at english on signs or t-shirts.

Coffeeshop on Jeju Island

These signs are my favourite examples of english gone wrong but whatever, no one seems to mind. It’s all in good fun.

Comming Soon!
