No Tipping in Korea

No tipping in Korea. If you do you'll likely be rebuffed, but if you persist they will show happiness, but in general there is no need to tip at all here. Korean way is 'service'. Service is free food, extra service, lots of smiles--all at no extra charge. Even restaurants and delivery boys do not have their hand out.

If a tip is required it is usually automatically added to the bill, and only at high-end/Western establishments and always noted at the bottom of the menu/price list. Tip is usually 10%.
