The recent generation of Koreans, I'm told, do not bow so much as their forbears. Is that losing their heritage to Westernization? Should they have a restoration and bring bowing back into everyday interactions? What do you think? If you have experience in Korea please be sure to chime in.

This is an oddly random yet strangely specific topic. Might I ask what spurned it?

Yes they should bow to us more. We saved their asses in WW2!

No. If the usefulness of bowing is fading in the culture, thay's just how it is.

No. Lots of people from other countries (like the USA) don't bow to each other)

Why should they?

Just branching out my perusal of Asian culture and noticed this one thing. Been comparing and contrasting Japanese vs Korean culture. Curious what others think of it.

Well from what I gather they used to bow a lot much like the Japanese, but it's been falling of fashion as they become more westernized. So I hear

It is entirely possible to honour tradition while moving forward they aren't mutually exclusive.

Not a fan of Tradition or Heritage, but I like culture. Sounds odd I know. No. If they wish to stop bowing, thats fine. Things evolve and change.

Well yes, but I was wondering if there was a news story or something behind it that made him think to post it.

Ahh, I'm afraid I don't know enough about Korean culture to render an opinion on it without risking being presumptuous. If we have any Koreans on the board, I doubt they're waiting with baited breath for the opinion of their culture from some rando white guy with a cat avatar from the west.
