Another Fail by Korea Times

with one comment

I flamed the Korea Times before although I do use a lot of their links.  Not all their articles are useless.  But when you print things like this, it’s just an embarrassment.  Do they have random Koreans readers just send in shit without being proofread?

I’m going to post the article below in case this hilarity gets deleted from their site.

Jennifer Aniston noticed to be naked

Jennifer Aniston has announced that she will show her secret parts of her body in the movie Wanderlust which will be released at theaters in 2011.

Aniston will be husband and wife with Paul Rudd in the movie. They move down to Atlanta, Georgia, and have become a hippi couple. The couple who want to be free from the world, the cloth will be handcuffs for them.

Not only Jennifer shows her genitals, but also shows homosexual threesome bed scenes.

Jennifer decided to be naked because she is in a slump nowadays. As her movies did not success, Jennifer thought this way is the only way to be a success again.

애니스톤 ‘파격 노출’ 예고

제니퍼 애니스톤이 2011년 개봉할 영화 원더러스트에서 자신의 은밀한 부위의 노출이 있을 것이라고 말했다.

영화에서 애니스톤은 폴 러드와 부부로 나온다. 그들은 조지아주의 아틀란타로 이주하며 히피커플이 된다. 이 커플은 세상의 속박에서 벗어나고 옷은 그들에게 수갑 같은 존재일 뿐이다. 그래서 제니퍼는 옷을 벗고 나오며 은밀한 부분을 노출한다.

제니퍼가 그녀의 은밀한 부분이 노출될 뿐만 아니라 영화에서 동성 스리섬 베드신까지 나온다.

제니퍼가 벗기로 결정한 이유는 최근 그녀가 슬럼프에 빠져있기 때문이다. 자신이 출연한 영화들이 흥행을 이루지 못하면서 벗는 길 만이 사는 길이라 생각하여 다시 재기를 꿈꾸고 있다.

Not again! Foreign teacher gets jail term for harassment

with 4 comments

From the Korea Times.

Of course this happens in Korean society on a daily basis but when it’s a foreigner, it sticks out a lot more and makes all foreigners look bad.  This, not long after the Daegu incident.  They just changed the E-2 regulations to supposedly deter these sickos (which everyone knows is just more BS and paperwork).  Wonder what they’ll come up with now.  AES must be having a field day.

No Luck Finding a Job These Days?

with 2 comments

First of all, my apologies to my loyal readers (all ten of you!) for my lack of posts but it’s been crazy busy as of late.

Over the last few weeks I have been trying to find a recruiter that fits me, so far I have not had any luck. It is not that they can’t find me a job that would be frustrating but understandable, it is that at this point they aren’t even responding. I don’t really know what to do. Every day I don’t hear from someone I get more frustrated. Do you have any advice or is there some reason that recruiters seem completely uninterested in me?

Right now schools are picky; ample amount of resumes to choose from.  In all honesty though, it could be all about appearance.  Best advice is to get a professional-looking photo and video (which is all the craze these days).  Also, if you’re not picky about location, it will definitely help your cause as well and make yourself as un-undesirable as possible.  Send your resumes to as many recruiters as possible (commit recruiter polygamy!).  Also, don’t only rely on recruiters.  You should also be able to find job advertisements posted directly by companies; apply directly when possible to avoid the middleman.

It’s very competitive right now so you have to sell yourself.  Follow these tips and be vigilant.  You’ll eventually find a position so be patient!

Attractive women overlooked for certain jobs

leave a comment »

This article from the Toronto Sun made me laugh when I think about how appearances play such a big role in Korea.

Attractive women faced discrimination when they applied for jobs where appearance was not seen as important. These positions included job titles like manager of research and development, director of finance, mechanical engineer and construction supervisor.

They were also overlooked for categories like director of security, hardware salesperson, prison guard and tow-truck driver.

Umm…do attractive women really apply to the last 3 jobs??  I’m not trying to be sexist and I know that attractiveness is subjective but come on!

“In these professions being attractive was highly detrimental to women,” researcher Stefanie Johnson said in a statement, adding that attractive women tended to be sorted into positions like receptionist or secretary.

Okay that’s pretty sexist.

But Johnson said beautiful people still enjoyed a significant edge when it came to the workplace.

They tended to get higher salaries, better performance evaluations, higher levels of admission to college, better voter ratings when running for public office, and more favorable judgments in trials.

“In every other kind of job, attractive women were preferred,” said Johnson, who chided those who let stereotypes affect hiring decisions.

Okay that sounds more like Korea.
