I am planning to visit Seoul soon.
Do you shake hands a lot when you first meet a Korean?
We usually shake hands when we first meet or if we’re in an official situation. Bowing is more natural and general ways to take when you first meet Koreans!! But when you get to know one another well, then you don’t have to shake hands. Just say hi or waving hands is more friendly!!
Thanks, teacher. That's helpful to know. I know Koreans are gentle for the greetings. :)
