Fun fact of the day

Korea has the only SBUX in the world whose main sign is not written in western letters. The story goes that when Starbucks wanted to come and set up shop in Insadong, a traditional area of Seoul, there was a lot of protesting and anger. Eventually an agreement came about and Starbucks was able to come as long as its sign was written in Korean characters to try to preserve the traditional atmosphere.
