When booking, waiters grab women by the wrist and shove them into the rooms where the men wait for potential dates. In Korean culture, where up to 90 percent of marriages were arranged 40 years ago, men asking for a date was not part of the natural course of courtship. Korean men are generally shy when it comes to luring women, so some would rather tip waiters to bring women to them. (Joohee Cho/ABC)
