Snappin’ Necks, Cashin’ Checks

In South Korea, a decent part-time gig is to be had as a fake wedding guest:

“For my first temporary job I was a paid wedding guest. All I had to do was show up at the ceremony of a bride and a groom who were embarrassed by the lack of people coming to witness their vows.

I was expected to act as if I had known the bride for quite some time, appear in photos taken on the day and eat a free meal.

Around 6 p.m. on the day in question, two young couples and three men and women, who all appeared to be in their 20s, gathered for a briefing.”

Eh, I’ve done much worse things for money.
