It’s hard to get around a city like Seoul where traffic is highly congested. One taxi driver explained to me that there is the rush hour period from 8:30-9:30/10am and then the “Ajumma” rush hour period from 10-11:30am where all the housewives come out in their cars to go meet their friends for lunch or coffee. Then you hit lunch hour traffic. Then you hit school traffic, followed by leaving work traffic. Luckily, I’ve been getting around without too much K-rage or difficulty but I’ve also learned to avoid going out at certain hours.
No wonder some of my friends here have chauffeured cars. Who could deal with all that K-rage road-rage?
