Korean Emergency #s

Post by David3 »

In South Korea, you can dial 112 to get the police and 119 for medical and fire. So three digit dial isn't a problem for Sun. Just in case you were wondering, you can dial 113 to report spies, or 182 to report an elderly person wandering, and 111 for National Security. No, I'm not making this up.

Also Yunjin Kim is from South Korea, so I'm sure she would know what to do on set.

KIM: Line?
DIRECTOR: I'm not going to tell you again, just dial 911
KIM: Lol, there is no 911 in Korea. You would use 119.
DIRECTOR: Whatever, do that then.

Yeah, when I listened to the tones made by the buttons she pressed, it didn't sound like 911. 119 seems right. Thanks for the research/info guys!

FYI - In Canada, if you just keep hitting "2", you get a pizza place. (Actually, if you continually hit any single number here you get pizza.)

(Sorry, was that a spoiler for Ethan's flashback - you know, his youth playing pond hockey, drinking Molson's at age 6, and learning super-strength from Jean Chretien.)

Really? I knew I liked Canada for a reason.

No, it's pretty funny, but I think "182 to report an elderly person wandering" is hilarious
