Tour of Korean Middle School in Busan

Pretty cool vid for anyone interested in teaching in Busan, South Korea. The guy who shot this video is a Korean American who has lived in Busan for 2 years now.

Deskwarming duty was one of the annoying things that were coming in when I was leaving. It used to be that you could take holidays when the students weren't there, but they started requiring foreign teachers to come in and do nothing on these days just to be assholes about it. I wouldn't recommend Korea as an EFL destination unless you are a tall blond female with big tits now. Even in the unlikely event you get the job, it sucks.

Their fitness room is appalling. You cannot shake the fat out of your buttocks or stomach. My god I would become a millionaire if I went to East Asia and promoted fitness as preventative health measures. Weight lifting, crossfit, martial arts, dance, etc. etc. Wow maybe this should be my goal.
LOL, good idea Lone Y. East Asians are obsessed with the idea of being "fit." You'll hardly see any overweight people in Korea.

the chances are, it's an international school. typical schools in korea or east asia for that matter looks nothing like that i know for sure.

those kids who go to that school are lucky though. they probably don't have to deal with as much bullshit as they normally would if they go to a typical korean middle school.

Yes, they are slowly being phased out of public schools. There will still be jobs at hagwons and universities though.
