Update for Silla Uni MA course in Korean Studies

Hi guys,

Just a quick update on the MA course that is planned to be opened this September at Silla University's Department of Korean Studies.


The applications are being accepted now. The process is very simple! Just one form and your diploma and transcripts from a BA degree. (For non-native English speakers a TOEFL/TOIEC/etc score is also required)


The course covers all areas of Korean society - Politics, history, economy, culture, language - and is a good opportunity to discover more about Korea, especially for those thinking of staying in Korea long term.


The courses will all be in English.


If you have any more questions email me any time at

Have a good weekend.


Leaving... take my kindy gig!

I posted about this a few weeks back and wasn't able to find a teacher. A lot of people replied, though, so if I didn't get back to you, please reach out again. My inbox is in shambles.

So... the gig:

As of now, it is three classes in Yangsan once a week. Each class is 40 minutes. There is a 20 minute break between 1st and 2nd... no break between 2nd and 3rd. So total time at the kindy is about 2.5 hours. Pay is 50,000 won per class. 

You really must be a huge fan of small kids for this job. I love kids... but they can be a handful and sometimes I get frustrated. If your baseline is "can't stand small children" then this job isn't for you. 

Each class goes more or less as follows:

why korean online transactions has so many passwords?

It is really difficult getting anything done online in Korea. First of all you are forced to use Internet Explorer due to the Active-x control Crap. Then you need to install 3-4 different programs.The you need to type in passwords and then certificate password followed by 2 security card passwords..I mean this is totally crazy..So basically to get anything done it takes a whole lot of time and effort..

I wish it was easier..It is similar for business..If you own a limited company you are forced to issue electronic tax invoices passing through a lot of program installs and passwords..I mean for God's Sake why can't they make things simpler and life easier...

Even shopping online is a nightmare with so many different restrctions on card usage and if you shop anything more that 300,000 won you need yet another electronic certificate..Comapre it to buying a domain on godaddy..All you need is your credit card number, expiry and cvc code..
