Rock, Paper, Scissors in Korean

Illustration of Rock-Paper-ScissorsVariations of the choosing game Rock, Paper Scissors can be found all over the world.  The Korean version is "kai, bai, bo" (sometimes pronounced "gawi, bawi, bo"). 

In Korean, the order is different.  It’s always:

"Scissors (가위 – kai)", "Rock (바위 – bai)" and "Paper (보 – bo)". 

You can see a youtube of the game in Korean below.
