Well, from my point of view, I guess it's because we're indebted to them. They already raised us up and stuff, so we might as well do what they tell us to do. I mean, they could've just thrown us out on the street, but they didn't.

Yeah. I wonder why most korean artists are old.

I've not seen one korean actor (yet) that was in his early EARLY EARLY 20's.

i find it kinda weird how you can live at the sauna in Korea.
i'm curious of why does it seem like everyone can leave
work and school for the reason of another person. and that
person is always one they love/like. and i'm also curious of
how come teachers can beat their students up. and oh yea,
how come when a high school student gets in trouble with
the public, why does the teacher have to come and talk to
the people? when did school and social life come together?
i just think it's weird.i'm also curious of why are there loan
sharks too? haha. damn, i'm too curious about everything.
i'm also curious of why in a fighting movie, the "good guy"
doesn't seem to be so much beat up as the "bad guys". i
mean, face reality, one person can not fight a gang by oneself.
i'm curious of why korean people call their brother or sisters
unnie, hyung, noonas, oppas when they can just call their
names. i find it kinda weird. another thing i'm curious about
is that, do people really walk around a lot more than they drive
in korean dramas? okay, enough about my curiosity. i think
i'm gonna keep going. lol.

KOREAN - Maybe hitting that hard is normal for them, coz I have korean friends(older and younger age) when they hit or just tap someone its really big time and when the kids play they hit one another(its their game).

The age of the Korean actors is due to the fact that they have conscription in Korea.
That means that guys of a certain age HAVE to go to the military.
As for the phones, the cell technology is more advanced in Korea and Japan and some of those devices
can not be fully turned off unless you remove the battery.

Well I'm already Asian, but I'm curious about Japanese and Korean things that happen in Dramas.

1) Why is there always a terminal illness happening in every drama?
2) Why Koreans say aja aja or fighting.
3) And the things I'm more curious about is the so many awkward moments they have in dramas haha.
4) Anddd why many Japanese dudes look like girls, and sometimes dress that way.



Answer:
1. To make it more dramatic. It is just a trend in Asian drama to have a terminal illness and make the girl become so weak... A lot of people here love sad love stories (not all, but a lot of them like it)

2. It is to encourage the other person. It is the same as saying "all the best" or "good luck". In Japan we said "Gambatte", in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China we said "Jia You"... all just to encourage the other person =)

3. We are shy people, hehehe.... In most Asian culture, we are more reserved about our feeling, and thus, we would feel shy and awkward when the person we like is near us. And we think that this awkward scene is cute because it shows that both of them are still innocent (that's what most Asians think), thus don't know what to do =)

4. In Japanese, the pretty boys or what we called Bishonen is what the girls like (compared to the more masculine type). I am not saying that Japanese girls don't like masculine guy but some of them prefer the more feminine looking ones as they look more "harmless and pure". Sometimes the Japanese boy band dress up like girls because they need to get media attention and they are pretty (prettier than girls sometimes)

I've noticed that Koreans, when not in the mood to answer phone calls,
they take out its battery! I'm quite curious as to why they do this. . .
I mean, I'm pretty sure EVERY cell phone has an off button?!

The sauna in Korea also have kind of small cafe or restaurant that sell foods and drinks. That's why you can live there.

In Asia, the school and work allow you to leave for urgent family matter. But it's not true that you can just walk out without any problem like in the movie (We need to get permission from the teacher or the boss first). Generally, the bosses and the teachers here are very understanding.

Well, I am not sure about that. In my school, only the principal is allowed to beat the students using a cane, not the teacher.

In some Asian countries, teachers also act like our guardian or guarantor and we need a guarantor to bail us up when we got into trouble and caught by the police (only apply for underage students). Thus, the teacher has to come to police station to become our guarantor (if our parents can't do that) to bail us up from jail or pick us up from police station.

In most Asian countries, school life and social life goes hand in hand because we spend more than half of our time in school. We have to do a curricular activity (something like club in Western countries) to fulfill our academic requirement.

Loan Shark is very common in all Asian countries. They prey on people who love to gamble.

Not all movies the good guys are not as beaten up as the bad guys. In some movies, the good guys are hospitalized and paralyzed when the bad guys and their gangs just walk in peace.

It is very rude to address someone older than you by their name without saying "hyung, noona, unnie or oppas" in Korea. In Korea, it is very very important to respect people that is older than us and called them by "hyung" (man to older brother) "noona"(man to older sister), "Unnie"(woman to older sister), "Oppa"(woman to older brother) although they are not blood related. If we are not very closed to them, we called them "sunbae" which just mean senior.

Many streets in Korea are narrow and very hilly (lots of hill) that car cannot go through. Thus you have no choice but to walk.

In Korea, we often go for drinking soju together with our friends after class has ended so it's quite common for us to drink... After drinking alcohols, we feel lighter and more relax and forget about our problems.... It's bad influence but i guess it's not only common in Asia, it's common in western country too

It's not true that all Korean actor are old, there are many of them that are still in early 20's

like Jang Geun Suk (21)


but most of the young man in entertainment industry are in music industry instead of film
