How do Koreans stand this hot and humid weather?

South Korea experiences hot and humid weather during the summer months, and it can be quite challenging for both locals and tourists. However, Koreans have developed various ways to cope with this weather.

1. Air conditioning: Many indoor spaces, including homes, offices, public transportation, shopping centers, and restaurants, are equipped with air conditioning systems. This provides relief from the heat and helps Koreans withstand the hot weather.

2. Clothing choices: While it may seem surprising, it is not uncommon to see Koreans wearing long pants or jeans during hot weather. This can be attributed to cultural norms, personal preferences, or a desire to protect their skin from the sun's rays. However, you will also find many people wearing lighter fabrics, such as cotton or linen, to stay cool.  https://www.whattowearonvacation.com/destinations/asia-far-east/korea/94-what-to-wear-in-korea/

3. Umbrellas and hats: Koreans often use umbrellas to shield themselves from the sun. It helps to create shade and prevent direct exposure to intense heat. Additionally, wearing hats or caps provides protection to the face and head from direct sunlight.

4. Hydration: Staying hydrated is crucial during hot weather. Koreans are mindful of drinking plenty of water and other hydrating fluids to prevent dehydration. Many also enjoy traditional beverages like sujeonggwa (cinnamon punch) or sikhye (sweet rice drink) that help cool the body. https://kimchimari.com/korean-summer-drinks-and-desserts-to-make-at-home/

5. Avoid peak hours: Koreans try to plan their outdoor activities early in the morning or later in the evening when the sun's intensity is lower. This helps minimize exposure to extreme heat and allows them to enjoy outdoor activities with more comfort.

6. Cooling products: South Korea has a variety of cooling products and technologies available in the market. These include portable fans, cooling sprays, cooling patches, and even clothing with built-in cooling features. People often utilize these products to help regulate their body temperature.

Overall, Koreans have developed various strategies to cope with hot and humid weather, combining cultural practices, personal choices, and the use of modern technology.
