Cartoonist pokes fun at South Korea's work culture

Cartoonist pokes fun at South Korea's work culture
 
Cartoonist Kyungsoo Yang is on Instagram Screengrab/Instagram @yangchikii

Most people don’t look forward to punching in at the office. And that’s also the case in South Korea, which has the longest daily work hours in the world.  But the cartoonist Yang Kyung-soo is giving workers something to laugh about. 

He pokes fun at his country’s office culture with a satirical cartoon series that’s taken off on social media. Jason Strother in Seoul has his story.
