There are three kinds of dining tables in Korea. One is the short folding table called ìƒ “sang”, second is the regular western style ì‹íƒ “shiktak” and the third is the pull-out table, which is usually attached to the kitchen cabinet.
We own two folding tables and a pull-out table. I really wanted to have a proper table, but having additional dining room furniture at our apartment would mean less playing space for my son. He has an electronic car, two bicycles and a slide, all occupying our kitchen/dining room.
The folding table is a space saver. Our medium-sized folding table would accomodate up to six adults. Regular dining tables in Korea are available for 2, 4 or 6 people. When my husband’s family is here, we would just put two folding tables side by side and it would sit up to a dozen people. It’s really practical specially in a small apartment.
