Someone describes their experience upon arrival in a South Korean airport from the UK. Tells how everyone had to fill in numerous papers, then was made to install a tracing app on their phone, then was tested in the airport; and how then he, probably because he was coming from the UK, spent a day in an airport's quarantine room while waiting for additional test results to come back. Took him over 24 hours from the touchdown to finally get to his home, he says.

In his place, I'd've felt disgusted, resentful and violated; but he sounds quite pleased with the experience, preferring it to arriving at Heathrow, where he was whisked through in no time. Made him feel vulnerable, he says.

I am worried that this may be a glimpse into the immediate future.
