K-pop and Korean entertainment from Korean fans' perspective

Korean superstitions

Pann: Superstitions that are believed in Korea only

- In Japan, there are a lot of apartments without a fourth floor. The floors are like 1, 2, 3, 5, and etc.

- You don't become blind if you touch a butterfly, but you could get an eye disease

- 4 is avoided because it's the same pronunciation as the Chinese word 'death'. That's why hospitals don't have a fourth floor. And I heard that the writing in red is because there was a Chinese queen who liked red and she killed any woman that used red.

- I slept a couple of times with the fan on ㅋㅋ It's a bit cold but nothing's wrong. But I heard that it'll make your skin dry and lowers your temperature. It won't kill you.

- I believe them, not everything though
