Smoking Ban: The Era of Korea as a Smoker`s Paradise Soon Coming to an End

From: BusanHaps.com

Since there are very few places in Korea where you can’t light up, smokers have come to love the place. Those days are soon coming to an end as strict new laws kick in at the end of this month and the era of the public smoking ban hits Korean shores.

BUSAN, South Korea -- Korea, for better or worse, has long been a smoker’s paradise. You can light up just about anywhere in the ROK with little worry of repercussion either legally or socially.

Life in Korea: health checks for all (except the Korean teachers, of course)

So my school (Which Must Not Be Named - let's just call it a Large Adult Hagwon) has dictated decided that all foreign teachers must undergo a health check at their head office in Seoul. Not a huge deal to travel there - I walk by it some days while walking home - but it's the principle of the matter. What the school says, goes. They want to take your temperature every day when coming into work? They can do that. They want to fire you after you get the swine flu on vacation? Yep, they can do that too. They tell you to stay at home for a week after leaving the country - or saying you can't leave the country? They're doing it now. They want to get almost OCD about foreigners, whether they've left the country or not?
