Where the Engineer People Live

Seaside village in Ulsan, South Korea

Working primarily as an English teacher and spending most of the last 10 years living in a one-room bachelor pad is all part of my life here in Korea. However, it is easy to think that that is how all of the other expats live in this country. The shock is when you live in a place like Ulsan where not everyone you know is a teacher and not everyone lives in a tiny one-room bachelor pad.

Info on Recruiters/apartments near and around Konkuk University Area

Looking for any information or help with apartments and jobs in and around the area of Konkuk University. Phone numbers, emails, contacts of any kind would be a huge help. I currently have an e-2 visa and am looking for a position to start at the end of february or early march if possible. Once again....hope someone out there has some helpful tips. Thanks. 

What I See When I Look at Korea

This past Sunday I took a walk exploring the southern tip of my peninsular neighborhood.  And it wasn't until I got home and looked at the pictures I took that I realized that a lot of them were examples of what I think of when I think of Korea, or how I see Korea. 

I love the older Korean homes.  When so much of Busan's population live in apartments, it's always a nice sight to see a bunch of older homes that have yet to be torn down and replaced by some big apartment complex.  There's also something so very Korean about the hodgepodge of houses and the tangle of wires that makes Korea's neighborhoods so fun to explore. 

The Room of One's Own

On today's episode of MTV cribs....    Okay so I know that MTV cribs would never really want to see my Korean apartment what with its lack of infinity pool and Porches in the garage, and the fact that it's no longer 2000, and I'm not in Destiny's Child. 

But just in case you ever wanted to see a Korean studio apartment, or you want to play compare and contrast with my last Korean apartment, this is the blog post for you!


Welcome Home!

Happy Leap Day Everyone!

The Lives Of The Rich

The position of the legal English tutor guarantees a sort of freedom that is rarely seen in Korea—the freedom to see how different families live. As teachers in public schools or hagwons we meet and yell at droves of Korean children, guessing the socioeconomic class of each individual by the amount of time we spend yelling at him, or her, as richer kids have been disciplined by years of round-the-clock schooling while their poorer peers are so free and so wild and so far behind everyone else that they have almost no hope of ever catching up.

Low maintenance kids have mothers, aunts, and perhaps even fathers, to take care of them; high maintenance kids have little beyond their teachers at school.
