I've long wanted to take the following picture, which says so much about Korean culture:

The above is an ad—stenciled onto a wall like graffiti—for a fried-chicken place called Gyochon Chicken. It's not a bad joint, as chicken restos go, but leaving an ad this way—by stenciling it onto a wall like fucking graffiti—is so hilariously out of bounds that I had to get this shot. I can't imagine such marketing in America; if the stenciler ever got caught, his ass might very well be arrested or shot. In Korea, though, you don't need to care about other people's property, so stencil away! You also don't need to care that much about law enforcement, because... well, what law enforcement, right? It's a free country! In some ways, anyway.
