It’s not weird when Koreans stare. It doesn’t bother me.
Koreans stare because we’re foreigners. The same thing happens in other countries, too. Local people stare.
But why do some foreigners stare?
There’s no friendly smile and nod, or greeting wave. That would be fine. A common sense of foreign-ness draws people together.
And it’s not just a slightly elongated glance, either. It’s a full on turn-the-upper-half-of-my-body-so-that-I-don’t-strain-my-neck stare.
What’s up with that?
