In regards to Koreans and agents and tour companies...
These companies hand hold Koreans. It's partly related to the level of service that Koreans expect and partly related to the the fact that many Koreans that use them (not all) are not comfortable using English. These companies write and plan EVERYTHING out for them in Korean.
I was standing in line at ICN to check in and this Hana Tours guide was meeting several clients at once, not one big group. He was there with their all documents in plastic pouches, which contained their itineraries, destination country information, detailed hotel information, etc. I watched at these people had everything explained to them down to every detail. I listened to them ask questions that would seem to be easy to find the answers to on their own, but they instead rely completely on the agency for everything.

Obviously, some don't have the foggiest idea of what they are talking about with regards to airline tickets.

My agent got back to me later, after I emailed my displeasure and was able to offer the lower price I was initially offered :)  so I would like to take back my rant.

No, It's not that. They just don't care about the same things you do. You sound like my dad (also in his early 70s like you). Only use one airline, worries about airline codes etc. Most people here are a good 40-50 years younger than you and are more concerned with price.

Can we not change things for the special presentation DRASTICALLY, EVERY DAY?

 :-* "The kids don't like it."

Well, F them. I never got a say in the plays we put on when I was 9 years old.
 
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

I hear that the best time to do *all* your lesson planning is  directly after a super intense 회식!  :angel:

@ Waygook.org user CO2 - my advice?

Just be chill. There's literally no reason you can't be civil to her. You seem like kind of an emotional guy, which is cool, but always good to be able to keep your feelings under control for practical purposes.

Yeah she kind of boned you with the whole breaking up with you after you moved here, but that was like, four years ago? And you were both (I'm assuming) in your early 20s when that happens, which is when lots of people do lots of unfortunate things, despite being at heart generally decent humans.

Hahaha, this made me laugh. (미국인병 made me revisit this from the Cass Thread)

I actually saw her on Halloween, she was with my mate. We talked for like 3 hours? She's alright. It was nice to see her, honestly. She apologised for crushing me and I apologised for dicking around in Canada a little longer than I should have. We're good.  :undecided:

Hahaha, I can understand what you're saying. Call it Canadian forgiveness. I've had a good 5 years here and they wouldn't have happened without her. I'm saying this in more of a causal sense than a genuine forgive her, she's amazing sense.  :police:

Hot Indo Girl. hahaha, I guess I do call her that. No, I suppose I wouldn't. If I'd stayed in Toronto, maybe I'd be a famous actor by now.

But who knows? All I do is follow my bloody romantic heart wherever it leads me and hope for the best.  :-*

Reindeer =/= 레인디

Rain deal? What?

티철? WTF is that? 어 covers an R sound well enough (alhtough it's still not precise, but hey, we're dealing with two different languages here.)

But the worst? 폴 for................ .. well, for. Pole? Paul? Nope, for. Pole the pollowing reejohns........... ....

In spite of recent angst, I like to believe everything works out in the end.  And that I'm where I'm meant to be at the moment, even if life feels a bit rough at present.

Here's hoping we find our happy endings~
