I am looking for any and all non-Korean speaking foreigners living in Korea, and would like to know if, while living in Korea, you have ever had a Hangul document placed in front of you and been told nothing more than, "name, sign" by the Korean representative.

When you attempt to ask what the document is, and what it means, were brushed off, told nothing, and the request "name, sign" was again repeated.  This may have happened when renting an apartment, setting up a phone contract, renting a car, signing an employment contract, opening a bank account…whatever.

I am doing a study to see just how common an experience this is to ex-pats and foreigners living in Korea today.  Please feel free to respond here or to my email account listed here, and please indicat if it is alright for me to contact you to follow up and gather more details about your experince(s).   Thank you.
