How to Make Your EPIK Job AWESOME! #1 – Use and Learn Korean Manners

This is my 3rd year of teaching public school – at the same school! I’ve loved my school from Day 1 and I feel so so so amazingly lucky to work here. You hear horror stories about public schools too, not just hagwons, so I basically won the Korean job lottery! Working at the same school has also given me the opportunity to observe and learn a lot more about the way Korean schools are run. Now that I’ve been at this school longer than many of my coworkers, I’ve also been able to compare how teachers treated me in my first year when I had no idea what I was doing, to now, as someone that can converse with them in Korean or English and adheres to Korean manners. This makes new teachers feel comfortable around me, and they see me as another respected staff member and not just “the foreigner”. This is so important in how you feel about your job and your time spent in Korea. I know it has made all the difference to me.


Yoon Sang-eun at the Busan Modern History Museum

My wife and I visited the third of five museums in Busan, the Busan Modern History Museum. Of special interest for both of us was this special exhibition, due to close next week, about Cheongwoon Yoon Sang-eun (1897-1984). The founder of Gupo Bank, and a civic leader in business, dinance, and education, Yoon’s life spanned the old world of Joseon and the modern post-Park era. The exhibition, which blames the demise of Gupo Bank during the Depression in the 20s on the Japanese, includes personal artifacts and documents related to his various activities in Busan.

However, there’s some controversy about the cause of Gupo Bank’s demise.
