Greeting Etiquette of Korea as Seen on Stamps

Korea, renowned as an eastern country of good manners from ancient times, has peculiar and excellent greeting etiquette.

Stamp The Lunar New Year’s Day (Korean Stamp Catalogue No. 4 321) portrays a boy and a girl in traditional costumes offering New Year greetings.

The major way of greeting of the Korean people is a bow.

When they see the elderly or their seniors on the way, they make a deep bow and inquire after their health courteously. Friends greet each other by bending their necks.

The greeting etiquette of the Korean style can be said to be an excellent way in terms of both manners and hygienics.
