Greetings
In Korea, it is common for members of the same sex to put their arms around each other or hold hands as a sign
of friendship.

Meals
Side dishes are an important part of Korean cuisine. They include boiled rice
(bap), soup (guk or tang) and kimchi. Kimchi is an indispensable part of any
Korean meal. It is unacceptable to blow your nose or belch at the table, and it
is regarded as bad manners to hold the rice bowl in your hand. Also, the rice
bowl and the soup bowl should be arranged side-by-side, with rice on the left
and the soup on the right.

 
Drinking manners
Koreans offer glasses of liquor to each other rather than
pour their own. When someone offers you an empty liquor
glass, you are expected to receive it and hold it out to
receive a fill-up. Drink the entire contents, and likewise pour
a drink for the person who offered it to you. This drinking
tradition helps promote close ties around the drinking table.
The 3 most popular liquors are Dongdongju, Makkoli and
Soju. Dongdongju contains grains of boiled rice and
Makkoli, with a 6-7% alcohol level is an unrefined rice wine
with the longest history of any Korean liquor. Soju is the best known of traditional distilled Korean liquors.

At home in Korea
Koreans traditionally live in homes with heated floors, and it is customary not to wear shoes inside. Even those
who use beds instead of sleeping on the "ondol" (heated) floors never wear shoes indoors.
