Why Small Talk is Different in Korea - Understanding the Culture

This is an aspect of Korean culture I had to learn over time, but Koreans typically don't initiate small talk (or appreciate it) the same way that we do in the US and in many other countries. However, there are many situations where you can do it, and even when they'd appreciate it, but you'll have to learn those before attempting them in order to avoid making others uncomfortable.

I met with Gillian 쌤 and we discussed how to do small talk in Korea, and when to avoid it completely in today's newest "A Glass with Billy" episode.
