Korean sense of schedule

So it has been interesting watching the beginning of the Korean work day. Timing is EVERYTHING. You have to be at work at 8 am (at least in my current role), and you can get docked big points if you are not...You have to show up to work at 8, but if that means that you are outside for a smoke break at 8:05, we are all good.

Korean traffic, not that many cars, but there is absolutely zero regard for traffic rules (this was reinforced by stories from visitors riding buses in Seoul, that go about 50 mph (not a good idea in crowded areas) and nearly hit cars. But on the reverse side, apparently they didn't even have lines on the road 25 years ago, so this traffic ain't so bad!
