Korean Self-Service Convenience Store

Every now and again, you’ll come across a self-service convenience store in Korea. It’s unmanned and boasts a variety of drinks, snacks, and other sundries. This particular one had a shaming poster on its door.

I’ve seen these kinds of stores but had never wandered into one, so I thought I would wander in and buy a bottle of water as I was on my way to the tax office to get some paperwork.

Do you have these kinds of stores in your country?
