The Hagwon

The kids are having final exams in public school this week, so some of my classes have been canceled which is nice. My final class tonight only had one kid in it. Fortunately the kid, English name 'James' is a really good student. We mostly just shot the shit, talking about sports, food, his family and the like. I asked him what kind of music he likes and he said 'Pop'.

'K-pop?' I asked, referring to the strange Korean pop music.

'No, American pop.' he said. I proceeded to ask him what he liked. 'Adam Lambert,' he said.

'Oooh, he's been in some controversy in the States these days. I guess he kissed his drummer on TV,' I said.

'A girl?' he asked.

'No, a boy.' He was taken aback. I think I lost Adam Lambert one 12 year old Korean fan.

Here's my classroom after I clean it at night.

Here's my desk in the teacher's lounge.

Finally, my chalk holder. Chalk feels gross.


  1. poor kid. smashing his dreams. you clean your classroom?? who is this korea will?

  2. I can't believe you're not too fat for that desk. It seems tiny. Poor kid with losing Lambert. At least he still has tranny gaga
