For the ceremony,

in the case of a man
a jok in the case of a woman. by inviting village elders and giving a party was a
common sight but it is becoming a rare occasion as more people celebrate their
entrance into adulthood in a more westernize ritual. The 70th birthday is called "chil soon” and the 80th “pal soon”, both of which are occasions for huge celebration. When you are invited to a hwan gap party, you bring some money in an envope and give it to the family. funerals are held in their homes or at the hospital.
The traditional funeral outfit for the family memebers of the deceased is made of hemp. However, more and more people wear western style clothes today – men wear a black suit with a black tie while women wearing a white hanbok. Instead they put on hemp hats, armbands and hair clips to show their grief. Measuring the baby's future when baby choose among the thread, pencil, rice, money, and book- 'Doljabi'. Don't enter anyone's home or office (including your supervisor's) until you've been invited in. Don't sit down until you're invited to do so. It's not a bad idea to say "no thanks," and let your host invite you 3 or 4 times before you actually do enter or sit. Don't write anyone's name in red ink. That would mean the person is dead.

Numbers: The number four sounds like the word for death. If someone pays you a compliment, refute it. As in Japan, modesty and self-deprecation score politeness points. the "Double Refusal Rule." It works like this. Any time a Korean offers you something, gives you an invitation, or extends some kind of courtesy, you're supposed to decline at least twice (3 times is better). If your friend offers one more time after that (a total of 3 or 4), then, and only then, can you accept. Koreans are gradually getting the idea of "going Dutch," but it's still pretty rare. Usually you'll be either host or guest, especially with Koreans older than their 20s. In theory, the person doing the inviting pays the bill. In practice, you'll make brownie points if you're the youngest in the bunch (or pair) and you insist on paying, even if you weren't the one who invited. When handing something to a Korean, offer it with both hands. Never offer anything with the left hand (even if you're left-handed). Don't point at anyone.

If you want to beckon someone to come to you,
don't use the usual western gesture. That's the way Koreans call their dogs! Instead, hold your hand palm down with the fingers bent downward, and sort of flap your fingers toward you.

some Koreans habitually point (at objects) with the digit that Westerners usually reserve for a rude one. Repeat after me: "Cultural difference. Less "personal space."in Korea
Not too comfortable yet with PDAs (public displays of affection) between men and women.
Married couples almost never kiss or hold hands in public.
People of the same sex holding hands is normal for friends, often female and sometimes male. Excuse me (not):
Not in Korea. Koreans elbow their way through crowds and cut in line without a word. In fact they usually don't bother to form lines at all. You never hear "excuse me" (chaesong hahmnidah).
So why don't they apologize? Ask a Korean! A generic term of address for a adult woman you don't know is ajomma ("auntie").
For a man, use ajosshi ("uncle"). The term for a young, unmarried woman is agasshi. You can call young kids komaya. An elderly man is a halabaji (grandfather) and an elderly woman is a halmoni (grandmother). Curiously, the word sonsang nim (teacher) also works as a generic respectful title for someone with authority -- a policeman, for example. At the table, wait for the oldest person present to begin eating first.
High status people always enter the room first.
Don't smoke in front of a person of higher status, like your boss
Don't drink in front of a higher-status person.
Bowing: Learn to bow.
Don't call anyone by his or her first name unless you're long-time friends Taboos
in Korea The average age when Koreans married for the first time was 31.8 for men and 28.9 for women last year, according to Statistics Korea

The divorce rate skyrocketing(by 900%) since the early 1990s, when in 80s it was virtually unheard of and very much frowned upon(the lowest in the world ). This is a steep jump of 40 percent since 2005.

the big change came after the economic crash of 1997, when men’s unquestioned status as the head of the family was fundamentally shaken.
+ adultery, in-laws conflict, neglect and abuse When visiting, you're expected to bring a small gift. A few pieces of fruit or flowers will be fine. Little trinkets or household items from your homeland usually make a hit.

Don't be too surprised if your host puts your gift away or sets it aside without opening it. This is a polite way to spare you embarassment in case your gift is too small. You should do the same if someone gives you a gift. Prostitution in Korea illegal but still practices underground and into overseas.
