20 Wacky Life Lessons From K-Drama ‘Cunning Single Lady’

Some of you may watch a drama and actually follow the storyline and the plot twists. But if you’re like me, you get distracted by random tangents with the characters and situations.

Take “Cunning Single Lady,” for example. You may have thought this very popular show was about a woman’s journey toward self-empowerment and a couple’s second chance at love. But if that’s all you got out of it, then you missed out on a whole subliminal level of important life lessons.

Here are 20 wacky lessons about life and work that you may have missed if you weren’t paying close attention:

You sometimes have to break valuable electronics to get someone’s attention.


You can show up to anywhere unannounced — as long as you bring beer.


The richer you are, the bigger your sunglasses need to be.


When you’re rich, servants greet you at the door to take your shoes off.


If you’re lucky, someone rich will give you a white envelope full of currency with lots of zeros on it.



If you do anything in front of a parked car in Korea, your actions will be caught on the car’s black box and will be used against you.


But if you’re ever caught, you can get down on your knees and grovel and all will be forgiven.


You can make any mistake once — but not twice!

  
Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or looking at your ex-wife while she’s passed out drunk, it’s always a great time to take a selfie.



It’s great to have a passcode lock on your front door so you can lock people out whenever you feel like it.


You can be talking about the same woman with a friend but never realize it because Korean people don’t ask for names!


That’s 10 p.m. — not 10 a.m. — and yes, you’re still at work because that’s where you should be if you want to get ahead in life.


When you least expect it, there will always be that creepy guy at work staring at you.


There will always be treacherous ‘seniors’ at work giving you words of wisdom about surviving a treacherous workplace. 


You can eat a bell pepper like you do an apple, but it won’t be as sweet.


You can give someone tofu to ward off bad luck — especially after a brush with the law.


You can put an egg on a person’s rice to show the person that you like him/her.


Your ‘friends’ will always try to one-up you and embarrass you at group meetings.


You’re never too old to cuddle and sleep with your mom.


You can put a dorky wig or funny-looking hat on Joo Sang Wook, but he’s still hot.
