I was on the fence about this blog post for a bit. But anyone traveling in Korea should learn about this and keep an open mind.
When you visit Korea, you will see swastikas randomly and infrequently — but they do not symbolize Nazism.
These swastikas correspond with Buddhism. It is said that a swastika was stamped on Buddha when he died, so the symbol means Buddha’s heart. It can also symbolize Buddha’s footprints. It also means good fortune and a lot more feel-good things.
So just keep an open mind when seeing this symbol.
