When Korean men aren't carrying their own "murses", they are usually carrying their girlfriend's purse. For those who haven't reached the shores of the Korean peninsula just yet, you probably think I'm crazy (I'm not crazy.)! It's true, it's everywhere--just open your eyes! For example, take a look here at Exhibit A:
The above photo was taken inside Homever, where we shopped for groceries three stories underground. As you can see he's being a good boyfriend by holding onto his girlfriend's purse (is it on the left or the right?). After a while you don't even notice this phenomenon anymore. Take a look at Exhibit B below...you can barely tell what's going on!
...and to emphasize this even further, here is my buddy Tae showing us how it's done. Look at the proud and self-fulfilled expression on his face as he sports his friend 상정's handbag...way to take one for the team, Tae!
So...to all the guys out there in Korea...do you carry your significant other's purse/handbag?
