This study aims to establish and prove the inevitability of native culture-loaded expressions in the Korean EFL students`` compositions. Cultures, both native and target, playa major role in forming ideas in any communicative situation. Thus, the Korean EFL students`` compositions all reveal without exception the traits of Korean culture. This has been evidenced in the forms of (i) rudimentary traces of the Korean way of thinking, (ii) verbatim translations of polysemous words from Korean to English, (iii) elliptical and economic expressions transferred from Korean to English, and (iv) direct transfers of pseudo-English words or expressions from Korean to English.
