While living in Asia, I’ve noticed so many attempts made for using English phrases, whether it be on t-shirts or advertisements, and a majority of them are failed attempts. As an English speaker, these failures always make me laugh, so I thought I’d share some of my findings with you guys! Currently, it’s just what I’ve discovered in Korea, but I will continually add to this page while living here.
