Korean and international fans in disagreement over celebrities manner hands

These photos of male Korean celebrities have been causing mixed reactions between Korean and international fans.

Photos of these manner hands have been circulating the internet, causing international fans to be disappointed and Korean fans to be frustrated with international fans. However, this is purely due to the differences in culture between international and Korean fans.

Korea is a country that puts high importance in respect, politeness, and tradition, which is where the gesture called manner hands stems from.

Footage of South Korean politician leisurely sliding luggage to aide at airport goes viral

South Korean politician Kim Moo Sung from the Bareun Party is receiving much attention for his seemingly rude act after leisurely sliding his lime green luggage to his aide in Gimpo Airport without even greeting him or giving his aide a glance.

As the video went viral, travelers were asked to refrain from causing a ruckus in performing parodies of the luggage pass at Jeju Airport.

That didn't stop comedian Yoo Byung Jae from parodying it.

Going as far as to coin the move "No Look Pass" from basketball where the player makes a blind pass at his teammate while tossing the ball in the other direction, many are giving various responses to his behavior. Some are praising him for his boss swag move and while others shamed him for his unprofessionalism and rudeness.
