Que tal peeps!
This is your favorite chica Jessamine aka @amobigbang bringing you some interesting news from South Korea. Are you attached to your cellphone? Could go one day without your cellphone? Could you go one day without feeling anxious without your cellphone? If you answered yea, no, and no don't feel bad. I would answer the same way and may people in South Korea feel the same way. Even we see our Kpop stars with their cellphone or they are always on their cellphones when not performing.
Besos and Blessings up!

8 out of 10 Korean adults say they feel anxious without their cell-phones
"A recent survey released by polling company Macromill Embrain has found that 77.7 percent, or 8 out of 10 Korean adults feel anxious when their smartphones are not within their grasps, signaling that they are "highly dependent" on their digital handsets" (arirang, 2016). CLICK LINK TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE. I would think this is true. Agree or not technology is the main source for communication. As human beings communication is central to everyday life. Once communication is taking away then as humans we begin to become anxious, fearful, and chaos breaks loose. Communication is what brings us comfort and a sense of safety. So it would only make sense that people are attached to their cellphones and become anxious without them. "The survey targeted 1,000 men and women from ages 19 to 59" (arirang, 2016). Also within this study they found that younger participants (19-29) were more likely to have anxiety when compared to other age groups. I also would believe since the younger generation is more technology savvy. I can't live without my cellphone because I so everything on it. I use my cellphone in my professional work and my personal life. I'm either taking notes for a meeting, using the calender to keep appointments, on goggle to look up information, on Vingle, twitter, Instagram, youtube, KpopINT website, Pandora, KpopINT radio, the list go on! Whereas my mom can frequently leaves her cell phone at home and could care less about it.
