Dan returns for this episode and we talk about whether or not younger people thinking coming to Korea should look at ESL as a viable option. Also, if you’ve been here for a few years, is it time to get out while you can?
Lots of things were covered in this episode. Below is the list of resources I used for Jeong, Han, and Nunchi.
Here’s the video about misunderstanding Jeong we talked about during the show.

In this episode Steve and Teresa sit down with special guest Eugene, from the podcast Cafe Seoul and talk all about the K-Pop industry, as well as a few tangents. We had so much fun with Eugene that we had split it into two parts. Also we’ve got some new music from featured artist Table People! They’ve got a new album out, Ride With Me, which you can find on iTunes and Band Camp.
Recently the show partnered up with a new website, ESLROK.com. Their goal is to be a place for both job seekers and employers, where you can post resumes for free, and join a community to get information about living and teaching in Korea. So if you are looking for a job, looking to hire someone for a job, or know someone who is, head on over and take the tour. Once you make an account you can even create your own blog and connect with others.
And, while you’re there, you can listen to our podcast, or others. If you want to get personal with the creators of ESLROK, check out Cafe Seoul’s most recent episode, Gone Teachin’, where they interview the minds behind the site, Ben and Jason. They offer a lot of options for users and we think they have a good thing going. But, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check them out and see for yourself!
