Business: Annoying crap

Now this is how they do business advertising in Korea...

Note that this is the entrance to my apartment, and everything from notification flyers to discount coupons are taped onto the door. Flyers amazingly 'regenerate', and my door pretty much looks the same EVERYDAY coming home from work even though I CLEAN IT! Apparently this is rampant throughout Korea.

See the crap I have to put up with in Korea?

and I thought those flyers they slip at the gate and doors are annoying enough..

the koreans have taken it into another level.. damn.

the next step is to paste it onto people's back!

i say you just leave them and create some kind of 'flyer installation' on your door ;p

they're pretty neat though. neat as in organised, not cool :p

hteekay: They are already doing that. When you walk on the streets, you'll get people pushing flyers into your face. It's common.

k.: I've tried doing that, but the apartment management comes and takes them down before I have a full bloom Christmas tree...

you should try to not clean it up so that it forms a collage at your entrance. it would be doubly cool if the collage went over the edge of your door so that you can't open it.

then again, it wouldn't be very practical...

what a waste of papers. Can't they think of better way for advertising? This is sad case...

Well the bright side would be.... you may get to find out some good deals/bargains or nice eateries out there!!

fergus: Hah, that actually happened. So annoying when I couldn't get the door open!

m@ri: Yeah, it's like an info binge... Too much information and not very efficient.

yuki: I do see a few bargains here and there, but the rest just gets discarded into the bin... what a waste.

Edina: Well, we do have a pile of papers due for recycling going. You should see the PILE!

Danny: Usually it's tape. Argh!
