Korean people can't live without a mobile phone

Mobile phones are so widely used in Korea that one out of two Koreans has one. Many people would never dream of giving up their mobiles and would rather do without home phones. Thus, the mobile phone is indispensable to most Koreans today.

It is quite interesting to know that the usage pattern of cellular phones differs by age group.

  • The middle – aged use them as simply telephones
  • The twenty – somethings often send text messages.
  • Teenagers enjoy downloaded internet games

The mobile phone is the most popular and most sought-after gift item that even small children want to have.
