Used to be every day was no pants day.
There is an anti-over-exposure law that is now in effect as far as I know...

A few knuckleheads did it last year in Daegu. Kind of lame honestly, but I guess it made them feel good. Smile

That is freaking hilarious. People were freaking out that people weren't wearing pants. And the people who weren't wearing pants were just standing there like "What's up?" Also, check out the hip parents who think it's a good idea to strip their kids down to their underwear and parade them around in public. They are such good parents.
I bet the people in Daegu had a great time. All the Koreans thinking "these guys are supposed to be adults and many are supposed to be educators." But the foreigners were just like "Whatever......I'm freaking out the squares by not wearing pants."
That's classic. LOL.

It is one of the all time dumbest ideas anyone has ever had. If you have a fear of pants, you should go get therapy instead of exposing yourself in public.

This has to be a piss take. Nobody, not even FOTB teachers in Korea, really thinks this way, do they?

I watched the whole video waiting for the bit where they said they were raising money for such and such a charity but didn't spot it. That would be bad enough but tell me they aren't just doing it to be wacky, please.

The disbelief from other people was great. Watching hot women in just their underwear is always a plus!

Foreigners in China participated this year. I can just imagine the looks and stares of Korean people if it took place there.

Shocked

No. It used to be allowed but idiots and/or bots kept posting inappropriate images.

All this does is confirm in the Korean and Chinese minds how bad and disrespectful westerners are and makes it far more difficult for those of us who are not that way to make any headway in these countries.

Plenty of Korean girls wear skirts that are short enough to count as not wearing anything, and not only once a year. Laughing
