One Act Play from Korea #153

Strapping American and his Korean wife are walking inside the courtyard of the apartment complex they are staying at. They have heard that the subway station is “right outside” but are having issues locating it. They come upon a group of three Korean women.

American: We should ask them where the subway is.

Wife (in Korean): Excuse me, we’re looking for the subway. Which way is it?

The three Korean women think for a beat, then all at the same time

Korean Women (in Korean): Uhhhhh, right over there!

While each one is pointing in a different direction.

American: Ask them which on is closest.
