I find it obvious and hilarious to see comments from other Koreans on my Korean friend’s #facebook post.
“Getting rid of my car in May. Need to lease or buy a car. Does anyone want me to buy or take over their lease? Wanting to see what my options are?”
Everyone and their unborn children came screaming BMW & Mercedes.
I of course rooted for my Toyota Prius.
It makes me laugh that I could come to this point in my life where I’m ok driving a great car that doesn’t have a luxury name attached to it but I still see other Koreans who would die without it.
It took a lot (time and others) to get to where I am today. To be happy with not having what everyone else has.
I grew up with Mercedes, BMWs, Range Rovers (not the sport, please) and I had to downgrade.
1. If you own a house and can afford the maintenance and gas for the luxury vehicle, good for you!
2. If you live in an apartment and NEED to drive you C-class or BMW 2/3/4 series, you need to re-evaluate your life.
3. If you don’t care about cars, but feel the need to drive a Mercedes or BMW because, well all your friends drive one, well you need a better self esteem.
When will Koreans learn that their showy behavior will only attract leeches and create a self hating jealous being that will never be happy with what they have because they associate everything with name brands and what people think.
If I can move forward, so can you.
If I can’t have the M6 or the S550, I’m good on the Mercedes & BMW.
