Via a Naver.com blog here, we can see some vidcaps of an episode of the SBS show “I Want to Know That”. These were posted on August 19 so they’re not from the most recent flap over marijuana, but you can get the basic gist of these kinds of reports. I’ve put five of the vidcaps here with translation.
Most of the teachers teach too much slang and even when I answered in class… He had schizophrenia so he was in treatment but he was a flight risk. He had a poor credit rating and declared personal bankruptcy. I brought the grammar book and opened it and showed it to him and said, look, you’re wrong and this book is right.
This man complains about the racial discrimination of hagwons seeking only to hire white people.
Here the broadcast accuses the government of knowing all about these problems but doing nothing about them, and says that foreigners often have sex with two or three new women every week, at least 50 per year. We also get a look at an excerpt from the phrase book “Making Out in Korean” (which I purchased at the Bandi & Luni’s in Jongno).
Continuing in that vein we get some kind of advice for foreigners but obviously not written by an English speaker. The second panel says foreigners try to molest little girls by offering them food and alcohol. The bottom two appear to be an interview with a foreign instructor at a university in Suwon, and he says before that he worked in a recycling plant.
The guy being interviewed lying down says that he’d like to be a teacher in Canada but that he has no qualifications, which are required in Canada.
Several other teachers agreed to be interviewed for this report and I wouldn’t mind slapping them upside the head.
