They put a paper towel dispenser in the bathroom at work. Like, real paper towels.
One of the less talked about (at least less blogged about) facets of Korea is the anxiety involved in using a public restroom. Will there be soap? Will there be a proper toilet or the dreaded “squatter.” Will there be toilet paper or do I need to take my own? If there is toilet paper, will it be inside each stall or one universal roll outside the stalls. (Important to note, this isn’t a big deal unless you notice it after you’ve dropped trou. And then, Houston, you have a problem.) Don’t worry, this blog isn’t about that. Just tuck that away as an important mental note that if you ever happen to find yourself in a public restroom in South Korea and you see real paper towels, you’re in a good place.
