Do you want to know the latest winter trend among South Koreans this year? Prepare to be shocked by the following two words – indoor tents!
Apparently this year’s winter is quite difficult for most people living in South Korea. From the very beginning of the winter season, people have been having trouble with high electricity bills and power blackouts. In order to prevent their family from catching a cold and getting sick, they’ve embraced a new way to keep warm without using more electricity. Reportedly, people have installed indoor tents in their homes where the temperature is around 18-19 degrees C, while the tent’s temperature is around 23-26 degrees C. One family in South Korea has installed tents in their bedrooms and in their living room, so they can watch TV, spend time together with family members or just sleep in warmer conditions. Reportedly, the electricity bills for those who are using the indoor tents, have been reduced by half.
One indoor tent maker told the media that he has sold around 4 million tents for the short period of 2 weeks!
