K-Pop rapper and YouTuber Grace Kim shares a lot of interesting information on her channel GRAZY TV. From discussing the cringey things Korean couples do to sharing how she believes Dispatch gets their information, Grace doesn’t hold back.
1. Fan Death
Arguably one of Korea’s most infamous urban legends, fan death is the belief that you’ll die if you sleep with the fan on overnight. Reasons for exactly why you’ll die vary, but the end result is always the same.
2. Red ink curse
Writing your name in red ink is bad luck because traditionally, deceased family member’s names are written with red ink in the family registry.
3. Holding the elevator
There’s an urban legend about a man getting on the elevator after you, with him going to the floor just before yours. As he disembarks at his floor, you see him pull out a knife before he ominously says, “I’ll see you soon.” Knowing that he’ll take the stairs to your floor, you are unable to do anything but accept impending doom.
4. Toilet paper demon
There’s an urban legend about a demon who lives in toilets. It will ask you if you prefer red or blue toilet paper, and unfortunately, you aren’t allowed to leave the bathroom until you answer. If you say red, you will be skinned alive. If you say blue, you’ll be choked to death.
5. Taxi organ harvesting
There is an urban legend that if you fall asleep in a taxi, they will take you to an unknown location where you will be medicated and be relieved of some of your organs.
