This is interesting -- according to a study by Korea Consumer Agency, a few consumer goods that are more expensive in Korea compared to other large cities of seven countries including the U.S., Japan, France and Germany include: beef, pork belly (삼겹살), pizza, beer, garlic, television. Based on this information, Korean government will lower the tariffs on these items.
The Korean can understand the meat part, but garlic and television? That's surprising.
