This is just one of those cultural difference I don’t understand. First, many Koreans don’t know how to swim and this is vastly different than where I’m from where we learned to swim since kindergarten. I’ve been here for 5 years, and this was the first time I went swimming at a public pool.
I’m not sure if this is the majority of indoor pools here, but I searched online, and lots of others experienced the same things.
Okay the swimming cap I can kind of see the logic in it. But in the states, I’ve rarely seen regular pool goers wear them so it’s just a strange thing for us.
The life jackets however made no sense to me. Even if you know how to swim here, many public water parks and indoor pools might require them.
Third, the 10 minute break. I tried searching, but really couldn’t find reasons for it. I think it’s for public safety so you don’t tired yourself out or something…I don’t know I’m just making this up. Hyo couldn’t really tell me. Anyone else been swimming here in Korea?
