There are several social rules that Koreans stick to, they will generally be relaxed about foreigners doing likewise. Follow these tips to avoid faux pas:
● Meetings & Greetings A quick, short bow is most respectful for meetings and departures. Give or receive any object using both hands – especially business cards, money and gifts.
● Shoes Remove your shoes on entering a Korean home, guesthouse, temple or Korean-style restaurant.
● Eating & Drinking Pour drinks for others and use both hands when pouring or receiving. Use chopsticks or a spoon to touch food and don’t leave either sticking up in a bowl of rice
● Bargaining is not common practice in Korea. Flea markets are an exception though.
● Tipping is not customary in Korea. High-end restaurants and hotels will usually add a 10% service fee to the bill.
