Big Pimpin’

This question goes out to all of you other hagwon teachers out there.

Have you found yourself, at the beginning or end of the public school semester, big pimpin’? I did, on Monday, along with my fellow foreign teacher, as well as everyone else.


Those are the collective of my co-workers at my school. Our director, who also teaches classes, is out there. Hell, even the bus drivers are out there.

Complete with our sashes (or bands, as one of my co-teachers called it), we were big pimpin’ our school among a number of other tutors. At several locations, with promotional materials in hand, as the elementary school children made their way to their first day of classes, we let them know they and their parents should consider our school for their extra studies.

Seoul Lantern Festival - coming soon

Author's note: a version of this article is published in the November 2010 issue of the Groove.

In case you needed an excuse to head to Cheonggyecheon, here's an excellent one. The 2nd annual Seoul Lantern Festival (서울 세계등축제) will host dozens of gorgeous lanterns lighting up Cheonggyecheon. Go for the opening ceremony on the 5th if you want, or head down anytime to appreciate the lights. Though the lanterns will be up day and night, head there in the evening to catch them looking their best.
