[+419] Isn't it kind of funny to be displaying menus in English when these businesses are in Korea? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+338] We live in Korea, just write it in Hangeul!!!

[+231] Just use Hangeul!!!

[+111] What's funny about cafes like this is that an actual foreigner will show up talking in English and they're like "huh?" 

[+70] I think it's even funnier when you start ordering in English off the menu and they can't even understand or keep up and have to call their manager ㅋ

[+25] I give up ordering as well. Do people think English makes them look cooler or something? English may be used around the world but this is Korea, isn't it? Do the managers and staff speak in English among themselves too?

[+25] I fail to think of a reason why tehse menus need to be written in English

[+22] Wow, these menus look like they're from another country

[+22] I do often find myself wondering what a store is selling when their whole menu is written in English...

[+19] Well, there's an old marketing saying that... if you don't understand what an advertisement or message is trying to tell you, you are not the target audience for it...

[+9] It's not just the elderly struggling with this, I can't order either ㅠ it takes me forever just to read through the menu.

[+2,482, -30] That cafe seriously wrote 'mi soo ga ru' as 'M.S.G.R.'

[+1,763, -35] I also find it funny that they changed our money system from 7,000 won to look more like dollars or euros with smaller denominations like 7.0 

[+371, -5] You have got to be kidding me with the 'M.S.G.R.'

[+95, -0] They're selling misoogaru for 7,000 won???? Hul... the MSGR is funny enough but the price is even funnier

[+58, -2] Are they embarrassed of Hangeul or something????

[+54, -0] MSGR ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[+53, -1] The real comedy is that these restaurants won't even be able to understand you if you talk to them in English

[+31, -3] These cafes better make sure that they take their orders in English too, dammit

[+25, -0] Reminds me of someone's post where they said they asked a cafe for 'nokcha' and were told that they don't have 'nokcha' but they have 'green tea' ㅋㅋㅋ

[+20, -1] I don't think it's just the elderly, menus like this are difficult for even people in their 20s/30s to read
