Pretty much every Korean male you know either has already done their mandatory 2-year military service or has to do it in the future. We got some requests on a lesson about some phrases you can say to Korean men who are about to begin their service. We can’t possibly introduce every phrase you can think of, so here are some of the most common ones we hear. If you would like to know how to say a certain thing in Korean, please leave us comments!

Have you ever ridden an electric car? Seoul City is planning to operate some electric taxis starting in the second half of 2015. They will first use 40 electric vehicles as taxis this year and see how it goes. The eco-friendly electric taxis will be painted sky-blue so be sure to look out for them if you are in Korea later this year!

Have you ever had taxi drivers in Korea refuse to take you as a passenger? It used to happen to a lot more people, of course including Koreans, and the main reason taxi drivers refuse to take certain passengers is because they are not going far enough distances. But this is technically illegal, and in the city of Daegu, new regulations are reportedly helping to make this happen less and less frequently.
