I don't know what's more frustrating; the foreigners who live up to all of the negative stereotypes or the gullible Koreans who believe everything they hear about us.


I usually reply most foreigners are like me. Actually most foreigners here seem not to be the stereotype. I think Koreans just like to put things down. Usually they seem to point out negatives.


As do Canucks and especially Brits, who are the worst of the Debbie Downer lot.

I just wonder how many foreign teachers he thinks go around smashing up tranny bars. It has to be a very small number, but he's making it out to be most foreign teachers.

We all fall back on stereotypes. It's a lazy way to think about something. However, it's usually true. Of course, there are always exceptions. Stereotype is really just another word for culture in these circumstances.

So what's true here? most foreigners go around smashing up the place? The few don't?

He's a bit annoying, even if I agree with many of his comments. What's so offensive about the girl not eating Korean food? It's her business.

She may even have her own reasons that he doesn't know about, as if any of it is any of his business. I rarely eat Korean food because I prepare 99% of the food I eat, and also because Korean dishes are often high in FODMAPs and are often spicy and it's unhealthy for me to eat spicy food. It's healthier for some people to eat what they need to eat and not what Glenn GoGo desperately needs us to eat.

The thing I don't like about his opinions are how he projects his own issues onto everyone else. Just because he goes to bars doesn't mean all foreign English teachers do. I don't, and even if I did I wouldn't be going to the type of bar he frequents. Another example is how he talks about how the Korean teachers all outwork him. I could understand if one was outworking him, or if a few were. But when they're all outworking him, that reflects poorly on him. And then he projects it onto the rest of us. I'm the only foreign teacher at my workplace. Last month, guess who was the only teacher who taught on National Foundation Day? The foreign English teacher. Guess who was the only teacher who taught on Hangul Day? The foreign English teacher. Guess who was the only teacher who taught on Sundays? The foreign English teacher. Guess who was the only teacher, aside from the owner, who taught classes on Saturdays? The foreign English teacher. Guess who was the only teacher who taught during the mornings? The foreign English teacher. And on those holidays, Saturdays, Sundays, and mornings, I was actually teaching math even though there are two math teachers on the staff. But at Glenn Gogo's school, everyone else is working hard and he's apparently just along for the ride. Then he gets on YouTube and complains like it's the fault of every other foreign teacher in Korea.

I just picture a bunch of Eurotrash EDM mixed with KPop every single weekend. It's scary that the Kpop is actually a welcome reprieve from the EDM.

There's a time and place for those...like once a season.

The guy is a whiny apologist. I refused to eat intestine soup and chicken feet last week. Someone hand him a tissue. Hes about to cry and whine.

That's quite the self-made video from a very 'effeminate' beta-male.

He seems like a ladyboy version of David Thiessen/Steve Schertzer.

That tool Simon is on some subway ad for used cars. Nothing worse than looking at his mug for an hour.
