Response to 29 Things You Can Actually Buy In South Korea:
1) Korean is not written in “characters”. It has an alphabet just like English.
2) Actually, many of the products have the same names in Korean. For example, #7 really does say “sweet garlic pastry” and #18 says “running panties”. The lube one says “love gel” in Korean. It’s okay to find humor in cultural differences, it doesn’t mean you are mocking them.
