I've heard that 5 is a number of ill-omen, like 13 for us.
Usually in U.S. buildings they just skip the number on the elevator. Guess that's not enough for the Norks.

I think it's number 4. It sounds the same as the word meaning 'death.'
Some Asian buildings skip both 4 and 13. Evidence of cultural exchange. LOL.

The only building I have ever seen that actually had a “13th” floor is the CNN center in Atlanta.
