Watch the citizens of Seoul teach us about subway etiquette
As someone who lives in New York City, I can safely say that subway etiquette is definitely not our strong suit. During rush hour, people usually scramble, yell, and fight for seats without any regard for the other person.
Fortunately, a new video proves that this isn't the case with every city. One commuter in Seoul, South Korea recently posted a video of Seoul citizens practicing near perfect subway etiquette.
The subway rider shows that citizens on the train refused to sit in section of seats that were designated for the elderly, disabled, pregnant, or for people with children. It's important to note that they refused to take the seats even when no one else was there to fill them. That's how much the people of Seoul respect the rules of their train.
