Japanese toy, “Korean invention!”

By now, you’ve probably learned to be suspicious about Korean [fill in the blank] 😉 .

A few month ago, everyone was talking about ripping off Japanese TV programs and Final Fantasy etc. Let’s enjoy exploring the latest Korean [lie/ignorance/joke/whatever] .

Edible bottle JoongAng Ilbo

Visitors view liquor bottles and glasses made of cuttlefish at an exhibition of inventions held yesterday at COEX, southern Seoul, in celebration of Invention Day.

After using the bottles and glasses, they can be roasted and eaten. In Korea, roasted cuttlefish are enjoyed as a side dish with drinks.

Bravo. That INVENTION( aka Japanese product) has been around more than decades(if not hundreds) in Japan.

I often wonder if a Korean dictionary is significantly different from the rest of the world(except recent China… 🙂 ).
