South Korea: Watch out there is a shoe thief about!
Losing shoes, either to thieves or to drunken people who mistake others’ shoes for their own, has become a common problem in South Korea. Many restaurants now have shoe lockers for customers or hire 'shoe arrangers' to watch over customers’ shoes. Some places hand out black plastic bags so patrons can keep their footwear with them while dining.
