4. [+728, -35] Regions that were already subtropical must be hell.

5. [+493, -22] Summer summer summer summer winter winter.

6. [+101, -4] It's so much hotter. In the 90's, the hot days were only during the summer season but now it's summer as soon as winter's over. The fall season has disappeared a long time ago...

7. [+84, -2] Global warming is a serious problem.

8. [+73, -2] When I was young, I used to be shocked when Daegu reached 30C. But now 30C is a standard temperature anywhere...

9. [+77, -4] In the past, staying in a shade was cool enough because no matter how hot it was, it wasn't humid. But these days, summer is extremely humid. It's driving me crazy.
