yes you guessed it : there are electric blankets in Korea but mattress sell uncomparibly because it is an extension of the Korean ondol floor both on the floor as well as on the bed . and again in the arena of small electronics independent manufacturers noted in their own field sell best than your usual conglomerate electronics branch in the likes of SamSung or LG .
and the story goes to tell .. no I am NOT the electric blanket-type of a person, NOT to mention jade or any sort of supposedly-healing rock for that matter . but after one hectic day in ShangHai we stayed at a house one night who had a Korean electic mattress – WITH Oriental stones embedded – on TOP of the wide bed . I was even too tired to take that off the bed and besides being a chilly night I doze off . and what-da-ya-know ? I had one of the most soothing sleep I had since dozing off AT the last couture show in Paris . there-after returning home I took out my own electric blanket my mother had bestowed upon me long~ ago and used it sufficiently until it went broke a few months later . (hey, you didn’t think I was the sort of techie who would buy another electric blanket even if I had one working ?!) then bought almost the identical electric mattress I remembered from China .
MEBANE, N.C.-Kingsdown has formed a licensing partnership with Navijam, Inc., a South Korean mattress manufacturer, for the manufacturing and importing of Kingsdown mattress into that nation.
Despite so many choices, including pillow-top mattresses, thick foam slabs that guarantee sleepers their partner won't be disturbed even if they jump up and down on their side of the mattress, and dial-a-number mattresses, many people still complain loudly about aches and pains when they awaken each morning. Perhaps that's why contemporary versions of traditional Korean mattresses have been winning over minds and backs.
