Ridicurous Engrish: Shop No.5


Holy moley, it’s a health and beauty shop called ‘Tony Moly’.

It’s quite an amusing name for a shop, especially because ‘Tony Moly’ is quite probably a reference to toning moles – ‘toneh moleh’ is more or less how a Korean would say ‘tone mole’.

It’s taken me 5 months of seeing this shop to make this connection, so I think ‘Tony Moly’ is the subtlest example of Engrish that I have encountered thus far.
