A quick question about Korean culture and receiving gifts.
posted by CoinOp to society & culture (5 answers total)
I received an unexpected birthday present from a Korean co-worker. I’ve read that Korean gift giving etiquette dictates that a gift of equal value should be given in return to the giver in some cases. Does this apply to receiving birthday presents? Should I quietly wait for their birthday to come around and reciprocate? What would be an appropriate measure of showing my thanks? Thank you for having a look!
