Seriously, Korea. What gives with this obsession with the word “story?” What do you interpret it as? I’m genuinely curious. I thought I heard a pretty plausible explanation a while back but it’s been lost in the ether of too many regretful decisions.

Here’s another one of those quirky things Korea has grabbed by the shorthairs and refused to let go of. But, a word of advice if you’re reading this.
