Default You know you've been in Korea too long when

You order Pizza and don't bother picking off the corn.

You go to a singing room alone and call a coffee girl to slow dance with.

You order a side dish in a Hof despite the fact that you are already full.

You enjoy all kinds of unusual foods that you claim enhance your stamina.

You wear white dress shirts that are practically transparent with an undershirt.

The backs of your dress shoes are all damaged due to frequently removing and putting them back on.

You no longer have leg cramps from sitting cross legged on the floor.

You claim that there are health benefits from using the traditional swat toilets.

Your Idea of a good night out consists of going to three places.

You are known to fight for the bill at the end of the night. You always insist on paying.

When you have kimchi for breakfast and then have the "kimchi burp" all day long. I'll never do that!!

When you go clothes shopping and find yourself considering buying a knitted, sequinned, Disney character sweater.

When you spit right on the ground, probably half a foot away from another person.

When you go abroad (out of Korea) and look for a Korean restaurant or Korean town! I spent 28,000 won on a bottle of Soju in Zurich last month.

When you go abroad (back to Canada) for 2 months and the thought of going back tomorrow (August 24) is killing you...

But 28,000 for soju!!!

Do you think that you are going back home?? (back to Korea)

That would take the cake!

Don't even ask me how much the samgyupsal and kimchi cost!!!
