Honestly I think Korean are not familiar with Islam. I watched Youn Stay last week episode and there’s Arab muslim visitors who came there. As a muslim they cannot drink alcohol. But Youn’s team didn’t know about it. In fact Miss Youn even said they are missing the fun of life by not drinking alcohol. Lol. I am not surprised at all when she said this but I do wish they all have some knowledge about Islam especially when they are doing this staycation show involving tourist with different backgrounds.

Why are there even clothes sold with these phrases on them in the first place? I feel like nowadays clothes with sayings in different languages shouldn’t be sold because people are just setting themselves up for failure.
