To south Koreans :

I heard that Sleeping in Korea is something sacred, where legally prevents any individual to awaken the people of sleep, whatever the reasons ..Is that true

Yes, it's true.

Korean laws prohibit people from waking up others?

Because sleeping is considered as a sacred practice & people are not allowed to wake other people up under any conditions or consequences!

People who wake up others may face legal penalties in courts in case complaints & things get approved and witnessed.

Do you find that weird? :(

I personally do think that sleeping is a sacred practice too but I don’t think that people should get punished for waking others up. Still though, there has to be a way to stop such things from happening or is it something that we shouldn’t really give too much attention to?

So if there's a fire, you're meant to leave them there asleep or move them without waking them? It sounds so stupid, it can't be true.

That is really cool! But what if they wake you up because you fell asleep on the train and it's your stop?
