Introduction My name is Jason and I am a 34-year-old Canadian English instructor. I have been living and teaching in South Korea since March, 2005. This blog is about how I see life in Korea, and Korean culture. I will post pictures and video as often as possible. I will also write about Korean novels and movies.
Interests Taking pictures and blogging; occasional clubbing and partying; seeing new parts of Korea; reading about the history and culture of Korea; doing research and writing on sexuality and gender for my future Master's Degree; trying to work out; hiking the mountains in Korea; creating crazy English lessons for my students to have fun learning English; meeting new people, making new friends .
Favorite Movies The Matrix, Stage Beauty, Wilde, Dangerous Beauty, Shakespeare movies, Sci-fi and Fantasy, Action-war movies, . . . . I generally watch a lot of movies of different genres. It's definitely a passion of mine.
