LOL @ getting tang. Left you a rep for that one, hilarious stuff.

Most of what you describe sounds like the Orange County stereotype. I've been good friends with South Koreans throughout my life and your description isn't far off. Main thing is though, I'm used to it and to being around them. It doesn't phase me so much.

Seoul is an amazing city, this tech savvy guy has instantly fallen in love with it's prowess of technology and advancement. Plus, going there for some tang.

NYC, and thank goodness it's modernizing so it can sort of compete on that level.
