"Thirty-two-year-old J, an English instructor at a kindergarten in Yongin, openly taught dozens of children while in a state of hallucination after smoking marijuana. In the car he took to work at the kindergarten, he had marijuana, scales for measuring marijuana, and zip lock bags used for selling it. Thirty-one-year-old W, an American English instructor, had learned techniques to prepare himself for being caught by police for smoking marijuana and shaved all of his hair, including his body hair, and after told his friends, 'If you have no hair you can't be caught by a drug test.' However his marijuana use was detected by a urine test and he was arrested.

"Police caught a ton of native speaking teachers and instructors like this, who had bought and smoked marijuana that had come from the US. A portion of these even carried out class in a kindergarten in a state of hallucination. It's shocking that university English professors were included. It was announced on the 20th that the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency drug investigation division arrested five people, including a Mr. Shin, who was in charge of selling, on charges of contravening the drug control law, and booked without detention 32 people, including Canadian K, who purchased marijuana from those arrested.

"These days, due to the trend of early English education, there are many children who take classes with native speaking English teachers from a very young age. In particular, most elementary, middle, and high school students learn English from native speakers at school or in hagwons. In this situation, instances of native speaking English teachers and instructors taking drugs and teaching classes are occurring endlessly. Parents' hearts sink every time they hear news of a foreign teacher who teaches their children being involved in drugs.

"To ensure this unfortunate incident does not occur again, drug testing for foreign teachers and instructors must be strengthened. In particular, it must be exhaustively confirmed beforehand that foreign teachers employed at schools do not have criminal backgrounds involving drugs. During the hiring process and, of course, at rehiring time and while they are employed continuous management is needed. It is also worth reviewing the policies for selecting and verifying native speaking teachers not at the level of individual schools, but by the responsible education offices or the ministry of education."

I'm pretty certain I'm part of one of the least respected professions in South Korea.

Haha, quality article. ;D

I usually stop reading anything that has the phrase "these days" in it.

Anyway no English teacher would be dumb enough to believe that shaving your body hair would stop you getting caught doing drugs.

Isn't that already the case?

Yeah you are right, just come to work smelling like soju.

The kids will say you smell like their fathers.....

When Koreans come to our countries we should let them take stringent psychological tests every year to make sure they will fit into our societies and that they won't shoot up universities etc..

Some of the these articles are really completely sick in nature.


Hyperbole much!!!!???
Omg
Occuring endlessly, ton of teachers, etc....what an exaggeration!
Just sensationalist crap for lower class Koreans who don't know what to think.

A few other pts
1. Just because somebody works at a uni, it shouldn't be more shocking haha
2. Hangovers from alcohol cost BILLIONS of dollars in lost productivity annually. Where's the outrage?
Haha just pee all over the outside of the cup next time they test u.

Here's a guy who smoked loads of marijuana for years (and still does). He's in his 80's (just before his 80th birthday in this video), yet is well spoken, in great shape, and articulate.

Here's a much younger guy who drank loads of alcohol for years. Now he's overweight and brain damaged.

Hmmm... Mr Shin, Mr K, Mr W and Mr J

That couldn't be Mr Shin, Mr Kim, Mr Woo and Mr Jeong could it? :rolleyes:

I was wondering why I was having such deja vu from this topic. I'm sure it'll follow the same path and get locked if the mods aren't already displeased at a duplicate article post.

I really hate the whole black and white casting of alcohol and marijuana. I know people who drink regularly and are perfectly fine, successful even. I know people who have smoked throughout their lives and they haven't amounted to anything.

It's the substance but how you use it.
But how do I know what to lick and what not to lick?

Health stuff aside, the consequences of banning alcohol were much more serious for society at large and it hardly disappeared either.

Given the choice, I would prefer my child's native teacher to come to school sober and respect Korean laws.

Either way I'm glad the guy is gone, one less idiot around.
