Waiter, there’s some Konglish in my alphabet soup…

:

Konglish, much like the Random Pictures series, are almost too easy to spot, as this post’s photos show. The combination of Korean and bad, BAD English never ceases to amaze me:

Because we all need a “sexy sound” coin bank. Seen in Incheon.

Sounds like someone got an 950 on their TOEFL vocabulary and a FAIL on their sentence structure. At what point did “eeriness” become something people pay money to have placed on their car? Like too many other English efforts in Korea, it uses big words and looks impressive, but utterly fails to convey a message. Also seen in Incheon.

 

The dorothybag – what every heroine in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ carries. Seen in Jeonju.
