Aloha, sorry for the lack of posts….busy as a duck!
During the past few weeks I have kept a close eye on the social media, news etc etc in Korea and it’s so astonishing how there are so much bull crap, generalization, and negativity out there. A lot are targeting on ESL teachers and expats these days too. The image of ‘expats’ in Korea is already so bad, do they have to degrade them further and further until they are the lowest specimen in the pyramid?
Might I remind people that these websites are only writing these kind of articles to get ‘clicks’. They are not an accurate representation of reality….just like blogs (yup, this one included..lots of photo-shopping involved here) Kpop and Kdramas (sorry to ruin the fantasy). So misleading right? Ohhh the power of the internet…
Anyways I just really wanna give other expats out there a big high five. Never feel degraded and judged about what read in Korea, especially whether you are an English teacher, photographer, farmer etc. Nobody knows who you are and what journey you are heading for. We live to feed our souls with something that we are passionate about…and should not be wasted on time proving to others that you are HOT!
Stay positive folks!
