By Annie Foskett Sept 22 2017 I hate pet names. First, I'm generally a grouch about sappy things. Second, pet names are often interchangeable with korean dating nicknames we call little kids, like "sweetie," "honey," or the seasonally apropros "pumpkin," which feels a bit bizarre. Why are we calling our supposed equal the words we coo at chubby-cheeked babies?
South Korea The People Korea is one of the most homogeneous countries in the world, racially and linguistically. It has its own culture, language, dress and cuisine, separate and distinct from its neighboring countries. Hard work, filial piety and modesty are characteristics esteemed by Koreans. They are proud of their traditional culture and their modern economic success. Education is highly valued as the path to status, money and success.
