Korea Subway Seating Guide

Korea Subway Seating

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters

    I wished I had read years ago… The first two weeks my friend and I always sat in the seats reserved for elders, pregnant women and injured people because we did not realize there was that explanatory sticker on the wall. It was so embarrassing when we finally realized we were not supposed to sit there…

    Leaning zone beats third from the door any day of the week. The middle gives a headrest, and the second can give you first dibs on the corner at the next interchange (people are understanding), but the third is basically the “out of luck” zone. It’s incredibly socially awkward to move from it so you’re basically glued there for the entire journey.

    Actually, scratch all that: Leaning zone might well be the second best spot on the entire train. Depends whether you’re on a Korail carriage with the big white divider or the metal cage 5678 type. Also whether its winter and the bubble jackets are out in force.

    I once made the fatal mistake of seating in the area reserved for pregnant women, hurt and old passengers. People around didn’t say anything but some ajuhmma did give me a very nasty look… Since then, I never did it again. ^.^”””
