Normally in a park the most ideal thing for you to do is sit on a bench and listen to birds sing. However, in South Korea it’s a completely different scenario. In South Korea you can wirelessly charge your phone in public parks. Also you are able to admire “ramen cup” hotel rooms, poop themed cafes, or even door locks with fingerprint recognition.
You can find what you use in your everyday life has already been enhanced or has different mechanisms to them. All of this in South Korea. 20+ photos were chosen to show you what other uniquely amazing stuff you will find there in South Korea.

One shocking thing that shows South Korea is actually living in the future is it’s age counting system. What we are usually familiar with is that if a baby was born on December 31, next year on January 1 they will be 1 day old. However, in South Korea a baby born on the last day of the year will be considered 1 year old. On the first day of next year, January 1 the baby will become 2 years old. Our usual aging system, the same as other countries, is used in legal procedures, government documents and age limits on starting school.
If you wanted one thing from the above list in your city what would it be? What’s something unique in your country that cannot be found anywhere else?
