Another very important point when it comes to good etiquette, is that if you promise to meet someone, it is important that you show up on time and at the correct place. Ever since Korea became an industrial society, people have become more considerate and more understanding when the other person is late, and refer to this as, “Korean Time.” However, Koreans think it is polite to show up on time. If you’ve made a plan with someone who is older than you, it is considered traditional manners to be there 10-20 minutes earlier and to wait for the person.
