Being an Older Non-Korean Korean in Korea

:

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!
