This is probably only funny to a westerner who can read hangul


This is a sign I saw in Christchurch for a korean hairdresser. The sign is attempting to say “City Hair” . The problem is they are using hangul but trying to say english words. But if you read 시티 헤어 in korea it actually sounds like “Shitty hair”.

The actually word for city in korean is도시( R: doshi ) and hair dresser/beauty salon is미용사(R: Me-yong-sa)
