Why do Koreans risk their lives on promises?

In Korea, there are popular songs that most Koreans like. It is the'promise' of singer Kim Bum-soo. The lyrics of'Promise' are as follows.

 

(Not yet) Are you happy (The day I came back) Still...

Love has always been a choice

After letting you go for another reason

The meaning of the tears in my eyes

He shook his head and comforted me with rain I sent you, who I loved so much It's because of your reality that you can't make a promise

You are the only love for me

You will live your life with tears that come from scars

Your promise to return, I can live with that alone

The love buried deep in my heart It doesn't matter if it's very late, I'll leave your place

Then come back and hug me

Sometimes I can't stand loneliness

I'm drunk late at night, looking for you

The wind blowing my still hot deep love

Let it float in the rain

Your promise to return, I can live with that alone

The love buried deep in my heart It doesn't matter if it's very late, I'll leave your place

Then come back and hug me

Until then, I'll prepare everything for you

So that you can come back to me and relax

So that you can rest comfortably

Your promise to return, I can live with that alone

The love buried deep in my heart, I love you with just that name

It doesn't matter if it's very late, I'll leave your place

Then come back and hug me

love you love you love you

====================

Keeping a promise to Koreans means keeping one's own honor.

Koreans, who value honor in particular, live uncomfortable lives that are very conscious of the gaze of others, but often make bold decisions to end their own lives if they suffer from disgrace.

 

South Korea, where suicide is particularly common, seems to have learned a little less from childhood on how to distinguish between personal life and the life of others.

The individual's life is the life of the individual and the life of the other is the life of the other, but because of the emphasis on a society that is too communal and learning, the individual and the society are identified.


So, the title of the most popular book in Korea is "I decided to live as me" by Kim Soo-hyun for several years.
