BE VERRY VERRY QUIET, I AM HUNTING WRABBITTS...... 2 GREAT ARTICLES FROM MARMOT ABOUT LIFE HERE IN KOREA. SAD TO SAY BOTH OF THESE ARE TRUE.....AND PEOPLE ASK ME WHY I CAN NOT STAND KOREAN TV.
You can’t make up stuff like this. It’s like living in an irony-free zone sometimes.
In the first episode of season 2 of CGV TV’s “Sexy Mong” series (think Korean adult comedy meets Charlie’s Angels), the Sexi Mong girls — including Djamilya and her continued oral fixation — head to that den of inequity known as Hongdae, where they witness foreign men and Korean women doing the “bubi bubi dance” and hear the tale of one women who’d recently fallen victim to the evil deeds of a foreign man.
The first episode of “Sexy Mong Returns,” a four-part series to run every Wednesday and Thursday starting from April 23, is already drawing attention as its deals with an episode involving sexual assault by foreign English teachers, something that has been a social issue for some time.
Well, at least the chicks are fly…
AND AS MONTY PYTHON SAID, NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
And in the KT, English teacher Steve Schertzer in Busan tells English teachers — and businessmen — to stop Westernizing Koreans. Here’s some of it:
It is no secret that many of the foreign English teachers come here with an agenda.
Like the U.S. government, which unabashedly send troops to different nations to spread democracy, many native English teachers here shamelessly indoctrinate Korean children and adults (especially girls and women), into the Western point-of-view by bringing into the classroom ideas and modes of behavior that should be considered out-of-bounds for a native English teacher in a foreign country.
Examples of this indoctrination are native English teachers in hagwon (private language institutes) and universities “advising” Korean women on how to leave their husband or boyfriend, to English teachers who brazenly bring feminist writings, revolutionist literature, and material which openly advocates radical social change into a public school classroom with the intention of disseminating this to impressionable 13 and 14 year old boys and girls.
A recent thread on a teachers and expatriates’ Web site in Korea will attest to this. Much of this material is not only inappropriate for Korean middle school students, it’s offensive. Any native English teacher who does this should be considered a missionary and a cultural imperialist who seeks to undermine the values of their host country.
