Korean Engrish

Korea has a lot of signs with both Korean and English on it. As a tourist who doesn’t speak Korean, I really appreciate the English translation. However, it seems like they don’t hire the right people to translate, as the English signs are often incorrect. I call this Korean Engrish.

    I think my favourite is: We are in Korean Medical Experience XD
    Because, yknow, they were offering to test your health. I’m guessing they meant to say: Come in and experience Medical care in Korea??
