Recent events in Suwon and here in Busan have seen some of my female friends become a bit nervous about walking alone at night.
I was asked if I knew where one could purchase a can of pepper spray or mace or some other, effective self-defense device here in Korea.
I heard someone mention that you could purchase spray on Gmarket, but are there other options?
Yes, I realize that issues may arise concerning the legality of such a device, and yes I do know that this is Korea we are talking about (I've never felt safer), but considering that a girl's body was found right in our neighborhood here in the Jung-dong/Jwa-dong area (near Jangsan mountain)...I think it's good for women to have it as a precautionary measure.
Anyone have any info? It would be greatly appreciated!
