Lotteria and Maroon 5
So I’m back in Seoul, and I decide to hit up the local Lotteria, not because I particularly like it or because it’s particularly distinct but simply because it’s Korean fast food.
But then I sit down, and they’re playing nothing but Maroon 5, and somehow I know every song.
Then somehow I know this is totally what Korea is about for me: Eastern but Western, foreign but familiar. Bulgogi burgers, for crying out loud.
