So we finally saw The Dark Knight here in Korea after waiting for it for so long. It just came out on Wednesday, and we saw it on Friday. It was absolutely awesome. Before we saw the movie, though, we decided to make a movie of our own; this oneâ€™s about movie theaters in Korea. After all, you should know how to order a ticket if youâ€™re ever in Bucheon or anywhere else in Korea.
Itâ€™s really quite simple, and makes sense. You might be tempted at first to get into line, as is the North American way, but youâ€™ll soon find that people bud in front of you at all times (thatâ€™s the Korean way, by the way). For both sides to meet peacefully, lots of busy places in Korea have you take a number, so grab a ticket with a number on it and wait till youâ€™re called. Once youâ€™re called, youâ€™ll have your choice in seating. In Canada, you just buy a ticket and sit wherever you want. Here you have to reserve your seat numbers ahead of time. Pretty cool, eh?
