It sounds like you're watching 나 혼자 산다 and that 'fat comedian' is probably 나래.
That show gets played a lot at our house, and she's definitely my favourite on it. She's legit pretty funny. And her wetbar in her apartment is impressive. She's also legit a pretty good cook, and has actual good opinions on food, unlike a lot of people who just go somewhere famous.

I would never watch the show if I was on my own, but when my wife is watching it at home, I'll sit and watch if I'm not doing anything else. It's not great TV, but it's not nearly as horrible or stupid as you make it out to be.

I don't like Seinfeld but can appreciate it. Same with most TV shows, really. Even shite like Love Island. But watching someone disgustingly eat instant noodles for the, what millionth time, while repeatedly say 아 맛있겠다 (while chewing)? Don't forget this prime time tv, too

I don't watch TV generally, so I'm not sure why you're saying it's because I want control of the TV. Lol. But I do have to passively watch this hokum if I'm doing something else

I can't believe you wrote a whole essay defending watching people sloppily eating ramyeon tbh

It could be one of a million shows, and one in a million talentless "comedians".

Because it's all they seem to do! I don't want to watch anyone chew on food while talking to be honest, bit that's all that ever happens. Sit around, eating while talking,while showing captions and the same dumb sfx and canned laughter over and over

It's standup. I watched it. It was decent. Standup isn't really a thing in Korea (yes, I know it exists, but it's not nearly as familiar a format as in western countries)
I wouldn't call it good standup, but definitely a step in the right direction.

I wrote two paragraphs. The second half is ways to get around having to deal with watching something you don't like.

Because he's a cultural relativist. In his mind no art form or culture can be objectively better than another. There's no intrinsic difference in quality between Sam Hammington sucking on a crab's leg and an episode of Seinfeld. They can only be described as different and not understood properly if you don't come from that culture. He tires to put this way of thinking across at every opportunity.

Latest uni ad:

candidates should have 4 years of teaching experience at college or university levels with b.a. or 2 years of teaching experience with m.a. or ph.d. in english, education, or related fields

Can't get in unless you already have previous uni teaching experience. That sucks.

the nelwly appointed visiting professor is paid krw 1,985,200

How can a "professor" position pay so little?

Reminds me of the old Woody Allen joke

“There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions."

If the salary is crap why are you complaining about the entry requirements?

I wonder how many people apply. I've heard unis can get a hundred or two applicants

In fact, a friend of mine is doing an online masters just for the hopes of getting into a Korean uni. With no experience teaching adults, either.. :/
