Okay, so I am brand new to Korea, been here for 2 weeks, and arrived in my new town (Cheongju) 3 days ago. On the weekend, I tried to go shopping with a friend in town, and we had a lot of issues. The main one was people not letting us try things on.
I want to know if this is a 'normal' thing in Korea, or if it was just us? We were asked to just kind of hold the clothes against us to see if they would fit. We couldn't even try stuff on outside the changing room, or anything. Was a very confusing and frustrating day. Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice anyone could give would be extremely helpful!
