Happy International Left-Handers' Day! Say Hello to These K-Pop and K-Drama Lefties!

August 13 is International Left-Handers’ Day! Today we celebrate the approximate 10 percent of the population who do things “the opposite way.” In the olden days, left-handedness was considered a sort-of abnormality and an indication of aberrant behavior. This explains why there are few South Koreans, particularly within the older generation, who are proudly left-handed, as many naturally left-handed people were trained to use their right hands from an early age.

Nowadays, it’s quite common to see some left-handers among the younger generation, even among celebrities. International Left-Handers’ Day was created to raise awareness and celebrate the uniqueness, creativity, and adaptability of left-handers all over the world. So let us welcome Left-Handers’ Day with these verified K-Pop and K-Drama lefties!
