Life for me is slightly different than for most of the foreign teachers here in Korea. Many people wonder and ask me about two things quite frequently: getting a job as an older teacher, and being Korean (or asian in general) in Korea. Things that someone out of college a few years simply doesn’t need to think about. Yes, being/getting older has it’s pluses and minuses.
I talk about how fitting in, dating, getting a job and speaking the language are affected by being Korean, and furthermore – being an ajushi!
