Color Me Worded With Badly English

30 March 2008 at 12:31 am 4 comments

Korean apparel has many trademarks: bold funky colors, flowing layers and the like. However, there is one that to me sticks out above the others and is a personal favorite, as it makes shopping all the more fun. The trademark of which I speak?

Bad English!

Oh, it is so entertaining! There are occasions on which the words make logical sense, but those are few and in-between. English on Korean things is hugely popular…notebooks, shirts, dishes, you name it. To give you an idea, here is a purse I found at one of the supermalls of Seoul, which also happens to be the best possible example of weird rambling English words on products that don’t make any sense….

Oh my. That’s rich.

See what I mean? It’s a fun thing, shopping in Korea…you never know what silly things are going to jump off the mannequins at you next!

    hi! i came across your blog from stylemob (waxveggies? that’s me. don’t ask how i got the name, i have no idea!!) anyhow, i really like it! i’d offer you my blog, but i don’t have one, haha.

    i just wanted to say that I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THIS POST!! i go to taiwan often (and from your pictures it’s really similar to korea) as all my extended family is taiwanese. shopping’s great and such… but the bad english is everywhere! =] i can identify.

    That bag is amazingly rad. Those are all name of punk bands, so maybe it was merch for a show? I’d love to have it.
