Korean culture of pride and honesty

The guy responsible for selling candy, gum and newspapers in the metro station can totally fall asleep on the job without any worries, because Koreans almost categorically do not steal. If somebody wants to buy something, they will wake him up. Koreans are honest people who will return your wallet if it is lost. On the other hand, if your dog escapes off its leash, he might get sold to the meat market. So you take the good with the bad.
