Newspapers fan belief in urban myth
Another stiflingly hot summer has come and gone in Korea, and with it, the risk of dying by electric fan.
If you’ve never heard of death by electric fan, you’re probably not from here. Every summer, mainstream Korean newspapers carry reports of people dying after sleeping in a room with the electric fan on and the doors and windows closed.
One of the constant carps by many in Korea is the lack of imports. The response to this by many Koreans is ?¢‚Ç¨?ìThings are changing fast!?¢‚Ç¨¬ù The reality however is mixed. Many consider it a bad sign for a city?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s restaurant culture if the best restaurants are in hotels. Korea, however can boast an even more dubious phrase, the some of the best restaurants in Korea are ran by the US Army.
