There’s an odd phenomenon that happens here in Korea, I’ve been noticing, which makes me really question my desire to stay here the full one year stay. I’ve tentitevly named it the “Korean Effect.”
Symptoms include, but are not limited to: Increased alcohol consumption, increased smoking, increased usage of illegal drugs (which is all sorts of dumb), increased in group awareness, decreased empathy for out groups, increase in general douchebaggery, reduction of/revoking of previously stated morals, increased lying, general contempt for other westerners, xenophobia (I shit you not), mock racism, irrational fear of being overheard being mock racist, more general douchebaggery, and being a general fuck wit.
Causes: Unknown. Suspect drinking water. Or idiot westerners.
Please, if you’re succumbing to the Korea Effect leave Korea immediately and seek medical attention.
