While I do agree with you, I have some reasons as to why I don't like to specify the settings like I previously said.
Okay but first of all, not all of my stories have their settings unspecified. I only have like one or two that I'd like to not relate it into a certain culture or country. Here's one of them:
If I have to say so myself, I can tell the story without having to specify the country the characters are in or what culture affects their names. It's not important enough to the story that I have to do a research on a certain neighborhood or a country. I feel like it's just a waste of time because the story can just progress without it.
If I ever did set the story in a real life location, I would probably end up stating it at the beginning of the story like "This school is set in Korea" and then done, I'm not gonna mention it ever again.
Also it's just like what @frgmnt said, I don't want to depict a real life location in an inaccurate manner and I don't want to be limited by it.
I hope it makes sense.
