More foreign tourists have been stopping soldiers to take pictures and stuff after the drama 'Descendants of the Sun' blew up.
1. [+721, -12] What in the world ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+638, -14] At this rate the army will create a special tourist unit and have soldiers greet tourists ㅋㅋ
3. [+417, -38] Unnecessary
4. [+41, -9] I think it's a great thing. Soldiers get lonely too for all the suffering they do for us. No one cares about them and it's great to make the feel special and important like this.
5. [+27, -3] A bit ridiculous...
6. [+20, -5] This is funny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
7. [+19, -1] Soldiers suffer a lot for how little respect they get, isn't it a good thing that they're getting more respect and attention even if it's thanks to a drama? I think it's good to see.
8. [+18, -5] Our country does need to show more respect to the people who protect us. We don't give them nearly enough respect to our soldiers as other countries do.
9. [+17, -1] I always found men in army uniform to be dependable looking and handsome even before the drama blew up ㅋ I remember in college some of my male classmates looked better in their army uniforms than in civilian clothes. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
9. [+10, -1] Let's just try to think of it positively. It's like tourists in Europe taking pictures with the Swiss guards at the Vatican. It's a huge tourist attraction there.
