Korean chopsticks and spoon are never put into food standing up, particularly rice. This is considered to bring bad luck since it resembles food offerings at a grave to deceased ancestors.

Etiquette in South Korea is largely based on Korean Confucianism, including such concepts as respect for elders.[1]
