If you have ever been to South Korea, you will realize that people in South Korea are very vocal. They chew with their mouths open and talk a lot. They are also known to yell at other people. To avoid this, avoid eating before their elders or leaving the table before they’ve finished eating.
South Koreans are very verbose
The verbose communication pattern of South Koreans is very distinct. While the Koreans are a bit less direct than people in western cultures, they are very expressive with their body language and verbose in their speech. They may also understate a point in order to maintain conversation, so it is important to know when to ask an open-ended question to clarify what they mean.
While Koreans tend to be reserved and respectful of their social superiors, they are more open and outgoing with their friends and peers. When you are in a new place, make sure you are polite and not rude to others. South Koreans are busy, and can be rude if they don’t know you, so keep your distance. Also, make sure not to push people or ask them to move aside while in a public place.
They chew with their mouths open
There is a curious side to the Korean way of chewing food. The Koreans don’t chew with their mouths closed. They do, however, chew with their mouths open. This is a socially accepted behavior in Korean culture. In contrast, chewing with the mouth closed is a Western practice.
The Koreans are a very friendly and warm people, but they can be a bit of a sourpuss when they are in public. The dense population of Korea makes it difficult for the average person to avoid bumping into someone in public. The country is largely mountainous and does not have any plains or valleys. As such, they will not say “excuse me” in public. Korean women, meanwhile, are known as ajumma.
They talk a lot
There are many reasons why Koreans talk a lot. First of all, their culture is very fast-paced. They don’t waste time and find it incredibly important to do things quickly. The reason they are so impatient is because they believe that this is what has helped them achieve “1st World Country” status.
Second, Asian narratives tend to rely on fatalism. While this can be terrifying, it can also be exciting. For example, if you had only three minutes left in life, you could find friends or even engage in a fantasy in the “land of peach blossoms,” a term Koreans still use to describe their fantasy world.

Koreans are extremely verbose and speak quite a bit. They use many words and gestures in their conversation, but they do tend to be less direct.
