I'd like to see Korea institute a nationwide Hawaiian Shirt Day.

It could be the lack of sleep talking, but I like this idea...


Things I would like to hear from a Korean:

Your way is better and makes more sense.

I was wrong.

There is no excuse for not doing what was in the contract. Here is some extra money to cover your trouble.

Happy wishing,
NK

Excellent!

I'd like to hear:

"Yes, you are correct. I should not keep so much money from you. I am richer than you. Just because I am korean does not give me the right to steal from you."

Also: "You know, this Confucian ideal crap is really nonsense. Just because I am older does not mean I know any better. Just because I have a higher status does not mean I know how to run a business. I may need to treat you as an equal. After all, you may have some good ideas that could make my business run more efficiently."

And: "Hey, you know, you actually speak English as a first language whereas I do not. Therefore perhaps you might know which materials will work better with the classes you teach. Maybe I should listen to you. I know some of the materials we use now are crap, and you, with your experience, may have an idea as to what may work better."

I don't know about the whole "win your heart" part, but if by "fight" you mean watch them exchange limp wristed girly slaps before getting the canister of lube out to invade each others colons, then yes, I believe its highly possible since both these guys are gayer than Richard Simmons at Euro Disney.



please keep in mind that i am all into gayish straight boys. plus, they speak british accent. nuff said.


Then my advice is to pm Adoons...unbelievably gayish with a soft, melodic british accent. When that boy speaks its like sweet sweet honey dripping from a rainbow bee hive.

"I think your opinion is informed and insightful, even though it runs contrary to what other Koreans think."

"I think shopping online obsessively is much worse than your Playstation 2 fixation, I will destroy my credit card."

"Since I am your wife, I will take your side in any difference of opininon/fracas involving other Koreans (Bu Dong San trolls, logic-impaired Pizza Hut employees, gold-digging doctors, Korean advertising clowns that prefer to diseminate incorrect English via TV, anyone perceived as having more status or authority in Korean society than they average person)."

That can be interpreted in two very different ways. I took it as the second.

"You look rather sick, and you must be getting burned out teaching these kids day in and day out... Why don't you take a few days off soon?"
