KOREAN: Gestures

  I think most Canadians or Americans, when they say something, they look at each other; each other's eyes, and talk (about) something, but in Korea, if you are older than me, I just look...don't look your eyes...it's kind of a polite manner...so don't have eye contact...Sometimes we have eye contact, but usually we have to keep our eyes down, a little bit down.
