Elevator Buttons

Explanation: You'll notice that instead of a "4" for the
fourth floor, there's just the letter "F." The reason for
this is that in Chinese (which is the source of many
Korean words), the words "four" and "death" sound
similar, causing some superstitious people here to dislike
our unfortunate digit.
